Michael Franti & Spearhead: "The Sound Of Sunshine" video musicale youtube

E’ uscito il 14 Giugno il nuovo album "THE SOUND OF SUNSHINE" di Michael Franti registrato in Jamaica con i i leggendari produttori Sly e Robbie e nella case di Franti a Bali e a San Francisco. 
L’omonimo singolo vede la preziosa collaborazione di Jovanotti nella bellissima versione italiana, trasmessa in radio dal 10 Giugno. Il video è stato girato a Pavia con Jovanotti e Michael Franti assoluti protagonisti delle riprese.
Franti e gli Spearhead non hanno dubbi sul fatto di essere riusciti a creare quello che risulta essere il loro lavoro più coeso, romantico e vitale di sempre. La stessa energia positva del duetto con Jovanotti scorre infatti tra gli 11 brani dell’album passando dal groove allegro di “Shake It” (brano che negli Stati Uniti ha raggiunto la Top 40) all’inno di gioia di “I’ll Be Waiting”.
La band ha iniziato a registrare in Jamaica con i leggendari produttori Sly e Robbie (Bob Dylan, Carlos Santana, No Doubt) e nella case di Franti a Bali e a San Francisco. Con l’album non ancora terminato Franti ha deciso di portarsi dietro, durante il tour con John Mayer, uno studio mobile. Il disco è stato completato lungo la strada, nelle stanze d’albergo e negli spogliatoi, con Franti che suonava per il pubblico le canzoni registrate durante il giorno. “The SOUND OF SUNSHINE” continua a mostrare il desiderio di Franti di comunicare direttamente con i fan.




Michael Franti è il creatore e voce principale dei Michael Franti & Spearhead. Per oltre vent’anni, ci ha regalato una musica incredibilmente energetica e profonda. Durante gli studi all’Università di San Francisco, Franti forma la punk band “The Beatnigs” e successivamente i “The Disposable Heroes of Hiphiprisy”. A metà degli anni ’90 fonda gli Spearhead e negli anni successivi trova quella quadratura del cerchio che gli permette di raggiungere il successo. La serie impressionante di registrazioni passate riflette chiaramente il suo status di cittadino del mondo.















Testo: "The Sound Of Sunshine"

I wake up in the morning and it’s 6 a clock.
They say there may be rain but the sun is hot.
I wish I had some just to kill today,
And I wish I had a dime for every bill I had to pay.

Some days you lose you win and the waters as high as the times your in.
So I jump back into where I learned to swim.
Try to keep my head above it as best I can.
That’s why;

Here I am,
Just waiting on this storm to pass me by.
And that’s the sound of sunshine coming down
and that’s the sound of sunshine coming down…

(Aye, aye, ayeehey…)

I saw my friend Bobby he said “What’s up man?”
You gotta little work or a twenty to lend?
I opened up my hand
He said I’m glad to see, they can take away my job but not my friends you see.
And here I am just waiting for this storm to pass me by.




And that’s the sound of sunshinen coming down
And that’s the sound of sunsbhine coming down

(Here we go)

I want to go where the sun will never end
With my guitar on the beach there with all my friend.
The sun so hot and the waves in motion and everything smells like suntan lotion, the ocean, and the girls so sweet
So kick of your shoes and relax your feet
They say that miracles are never ceasin’, and every single soul needs a little realeasin’
the stereo bumpin till the sun goes down, and I only want to hear that sound

And that’s the sound of sunshine coming down
And that’s the sound of sunshine coming down

And now say
You’re the one I want to be with, when the sun goes down.
You’re the one I want to be with, when t esun goes down

Sing;
You’re the one I want to be with when the sun goes down.
You’re the one I want to be with when the sun goes

That’s the sound of sunshine coming down
And that’s the sound of sunshine coming down

(Aye, aye aye, Ha, aye aye)

I wake up in the morning and it’s 6 a clock.
They say there may be rain but the sun is hot.
I wish I had some just to kill today,
And I wish I had a dime for every bill I had to pay.

Some days you lose you win and the waters as high as the times your in.
So I jump back into where I learned to swim.
Try to keep my head above it as best I can.
That’s why;

Here I am,
Just waiting on this storm to pass me by.
And that’s the sound of sunshine coming down
and that’s the sound of sunshine coming down…

(Aye, aye, ayeehey…)

I saw my friend Bobby he said “What’s up man?”
You gotta little work or a twenty to lend?

That’s the sound of sunshine coming down
And that’s the sound of sunshine coming down


Testo: "The sound of Sunshine" Michael Franti & Spearhead ft. Jovanotti

Mi sveglio la mattina e do uno sguardo in giro
dicevan che era brutto invece il sole è d’oro
saluto la giornata e stiro un pò la schiena
mi devo guadagnare in pò il pranzo e poi una cena

a volte gira bene a volte gira male
è buffo non so nuotare faccio un tuffo
mi immergo poi respiro con la testa fuori
galleggio a pelo d’acqua come fanno i fiori

ohhh yeah!!!!
eccomi…
splende un grande sole su di me…

That’s the sound of sunshine going down
il battito del sole
That’s the sound of sunshine going down
su di noi su di noi…

I saw my friend, Bobby, he said What’s up man?
You gotta little work or a twenty to lend?
I opened up my hand, he said, I’m glad to see
They can take away my job but not my friends, you see

Here I am
Just waiting for this storm to pass me by
That’s the sound of sunshine going down
il battito del sole (x3)
That’s the sound of sunshine going down
il battito del sole (x3)

voglio stare dove state anche quando ovunque gela
la chitarra sulla spiaggia il profumo di una vela
il sole che mi scalda le onde in movimento
profumo di abbronzanti che si espande nel vento

So kick of your shoes and relax your feet
They say that miracles are never ceasing
And every single soul needs a little releasing

…. che suona un ritmo che rilassa
tutto il meglio resta il peggio invece passa

That’s the sound of sunshine going down
il battito del sole (x3)
That’s the sound of sunshine going down
il battito del sole (x3)

You’re the one I want to be with
se tu quella con cui voglio stare
You’re the one I want to be with
quando il sole cade dietro il mare
You’re the one I want to be with
se tu quella con cui voglio stare
You’re the one I want to be with
quando il sole cade dietro il mare

That’s the sound of sunshine going down
il battito del sole (x3)
That’s the sound of sunshine going down
il battito del sole (x3)
