Proving that you don’t need a vocal line to get the party started with his recent amped-up releases “Let’s Get Loud,” “Livin’ la Vida Loca” and “Quizás, Quizás, Quizás,” international superstar HAUSER now shares one of the more tender moments from his forthcoming solo album, ‘The Player’ due September 16th via Sony Music Masterworks and now available for preorder.
The soulful “Historia de un Amor”, originally penned by Panamanian songwriter Carlos Eleta Almarán in the 1950s, is a sweetly sorrowful ballad, showcasing HAUSER’s distinctive versatility. “Most of the album has a very upbeat, party-like energy to it, but I wanted to make sure we included a couple of ballads too,” says HAUSER. “This version leans toward the feeling of the original and maintains its Panamanian influence.” Adding poignancy to the video, director András Galler Indián filmed the track in the beautiful neo-Renaissance Hungarian State Opera House, listen here and watch music video here.
THE PLAYER, which features an accompaniment from the Czech National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Steven Mercurio, skillfully merges modern-day hits with timeless classics in custom HAUSER style. The genre-bending artist has found a deep appreciation for Old Hollywood and classic rock-n-roll greats like Elvis and Dean Martin, who have inspired much of his new style. On the new record, HAUSER follows in the footsteps of his heroes, taking the stage as a cross-generational legend in his own right.
Revered globally for his captivating live performance, HAUSER has already hit the stage in over 40 countries (including historic venues like New York City’s Radio City Music Hall and London’s Royal Albert Hall) and performed alongside such wide-ranging acts as Andrea Bocelli, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Elton John. He's even performed at the Vatican and appeared on a wide range of TV shows, including The Bachelorette, Today Show, Good Morning America, Ellen, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, CNN en Español, as well as sports broadcasts like the NFL and UEFA.
Last month, HAUSER debuted a performance of the recent single “Let’s Get Loud” for The GRAMMY’s popular video series “ReImagined At-Home.” The GRAMMY’s raved about the “opulent, fiery” performance and called it a “glammed-up dance party.” True to HAUSER’s committed intent to create a global dance party with his music, his rendition of “Let’s Get Loud” is yet another testament to his multifaceted artistry.
The success of HAUSER extends far beyond his ever-growing devoted fan base and many millions of social media followers. With more than three billion audio and video streams, the Croatian musician is a phenomenon that thrives on audience interaction. HAUSER holds an intrinsic ability to unify and inspire generations of music lovers. “The cello has a universal language that everyone can understand,” he affirms. “I want to create music that brings us all together to celebrate the gift of music!”
