Hot on the heels of 2015’s ‘Stratospheric’, Gal Costa is back in a Sao Paulo studio this week, working on a new project with hot-hand songwriter, Silva. Recording will also take place in Vitoria, ES.

The album revisits a project that was originally slated as a ‘live’ recording back in 2014, but was set aside when ‘Stratospheric’ began its successful worldwide run.

Dubbed ‘Ela Disse-me Assim – Canções de Lupicínio Rodrigues’ and produced by Marcus Preto, the new project is a handpicked selection of Samba-Cançãos from the legendary Brazilian songwriter (September 16, 1914 - August 27, 1974), whose lyrics were often wretched with heartbreak and emotion. The title track remains one of Rodrigues’ greatest hit songs.

Another treat: You can expect to hear Silva’s keyboards on the new album, and if you can’t wait, check out Silva’s duet with Marisa Monte, currently on The Sounds of Brazil’s active playlist this week.
