Il Ballo Della Vita auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Il ballo della vita (lit.'The dance of life') is the debut studio album by Italian pop rock band Måneskin. It was released on 26 October 2018. The album peaked at number one on the Italian Albums Chart, managed to reach Top 20 on European music charts, and received a triple platinum certification by FIMI. The album includes the hit singles "Morirò da re", "Torna a casa", "Fear for Nobody", "L'altra dimensione" and "Le parole lontane".


Like in the previous EP Chosen, Il ballo della vita is a modern Italian pop rock record with influences from funk, reggae and ska.[1][2][3] In an The Upcoming interview, the band cited Led Zeppelin, Arctic Monkeys, Harry Styles, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Bruno Mars as inspirations for the album.[4]

The album's title is meaning a "celebration of youth, of freedom".[5] The central figure of the album's lyrics is the fictional muse "Marlena", a "woman who represents beauty and the message we want to communicate: a message of freedom of choice, of attitude, of style to which we have tried to give a face, a name and a voice".[5] Another protagonist is a man who wants to be with her until the very end. According to Damiano David, she is also a "personification of the fear of not being able to be oneself. Man is security, believing in oneself, like a father or an older brother, and he takes this woman into an objectively uncomfortable situation to bring her to a better version: not changing her, but making her accept herself, her aspirations".[6]

Five out of twelve songs in the album contain lyrics in English: "New Song", "Sh*t Blvd", single "Fear for Nobody", "Are You Ready?" and "Close to the Top".


In October 2018, the band released This Is Måneskin, a documentary film which delved into the band's career beginnings, personal life and the creative process of producing the album.[7]

The album was promoted by their first career tour which was held between 2018 and 2019, and which had sold-out over 70 dates with more than 140,000 tickets, including their first European tour with eleven sold-out dates in Spain, France, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium and the United Kingdom.[8][9][10]

Commercial performance

By May 2019, the tracks accumulated more than 196 million streams on Spotify.[11] Following the band's win at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 with the song "Zitti e buoni" (from their succeeding album Teatro d'ira: Vol. I), the album entered charts outside Italy (and Switzerland) for the first time.

Måneskin auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Måneskin ist eine italienische Rockband aus Rom, die 2017 durch ihre Teilnahme an der Castingshow X Factor bekannt wurde. Sie siegte mit dem Lied Zitti e buoni beim Sanremo-Festival 2021 und Eurovision Song Contest 2021.


Frontman Damiano David (2018)

Die vier Bandmitglieder lernten sich in der Schule kennen und beschlossen 2016, sich zu einer Band zusammenzuschließen. Weil die Bassistin Victoria De Angelis dänischer Abstammung ist, wählte man als Namen das dänische Wort für Mondschein, Måneskin (dänische Aussprache [ˈmɔːnəˌsgenˀ][1]).[2] Mit einem Stilmix aus Rock, Pop und Reggae gelang der Gruppe 2017 in der elften Staffel von X Factor der Einzug ins Team von Manuel Agnelli. Sie wurden als Favorit für den Sieg gehandelt, verloren jedoch im Finale gegen Lorenzo Licitra. Danach erschien die erste EP Chosen.

Anfang 2018 tourte die Band durch italienische Clubs; im März legte sie mit Morirò da re erstmals eine italienischsprachige Single vor. Im Oktober 2018, in Vorbereitung des ersten Studioalbums, gelang der Band mit der Ballade Torna a casa erstmals der Sprung auf Platz eins der italienischen Charts. Das Album mit dem Titel Il ballo della vita erschien im November und erreichte ebenfalls die Chartspitze. 2019 folgten weitere erfolgreiche Singles wie L’altra dimensione und Le parole lontane.

Ende 2020 meldete sich Måneskin mit dem Stück Vent’anni zurück. Im März siegte die Band beim Sanremo-Festival 2021 mit dem Rocksong Zitti e buoni. Im selben Monat erschien das Album Teatro d’ira – Vol. I, das erneut die Chartspitze erreichte. Mit Zitti e buoni gelang der Gruppe im Mai auch der Sieg beim Eurovision Song Contest 2021.[3] Dadurch erhielt sie weltweite Aufmerksamkeit. Vor allem ihre Coverversion des Liedes Beggin’ von den Four Seasons (ursprünglich 2017 bei X Factor präsentiert) wurde ein viraler Hit, der auch in den USA mit Platin ausgezeichnet wurde.

Im November 2022 wurde Måneskin durch die amerikanische Recording Academy für die Grammy Awards 2023 in der Kategorie Best New Artist nominiert.[4] Nach mehreren Singles und einer ausgedehnten Tournee erschien Anfang 2023 ihr drittes Album Rush!, das im Unterschied zu den vorhergehenden Alben hauptsächlich englischsprachige Lieder enthält.
