Maneskin Bring Wailing Guitars, Vocal Acrobatics to Power Ballad ‘The Loneliest’
We've heard Maneskin rock, but it's time to see how they handle the tender-hearted tradition of the power ballad. Today (Oct. 7), the Italian rockers drop their impressive new song "The Loneliest."
The track is one that will sneak up on you, with the band making great use of tension building, as singer Damiano David gets a chance to show his vocal range, taking you from the more vulnerable moments to points in the song that evoke more power. And while there are heartfelt ballad-type moments to the track, some of the guitar work toward the end absolutely wails bringing the track to its climax. The song should connect with listeners, as the grief felt over the loss of a love is absolutely palpable throughout.
“We’re so excited for you all to finally hear 'The Loneliest," says the singer. "This song means a lot to me, It’s a personal song but I hope you can all relate to it in your own way. We played a tiny surprise show in London last night and performed 'The Loneliest' live for the first time and your reaction meant so much to us! We’re having a whirlwind year touring the globe, meeting fans at gigs and festivals all over the world, from Japan to America to Europe and beyond, and we can’t wait to continue touring and releasing more music into 2023!"
Take a listen to "The Loneliest" below and check out fan-shot video from the song's live debut in London as well.
