ALBUM OF THE WEEK: FRANCO BATTIATO – LA VOCE DEL PADRONE (1981)

La voce del padrone is an album by Italian singer-songwriter Franco Battiato, released by EMI Italiana in 1981. The album followed L’era del cinghiale bianco (1979) and Patriots (1980), which signaled a return by Battiato to a more pop-oriented style.

Besides being Battiato’s first pop success, it was also the first Italian LP to sell more than one million copies.

Francesco “Franco” Battiato  is an Italian singer-songwriter, composer, filmmaker and, under the pseudonym Süphan Barzani, also a painter.

Battiato’s songs contain esoteric, philosophical and religious themes, and have spanned genres such as experimental pop, electronic music, progressive rock, and new wave.
