Tell us about the musical direction of the new album "It's a rock opera, it's got super rock songs, it's got techno songs, it's got a song with a 40 piece orchestra and my voice, it's got a heavy duty rock songs, syth pop, gospel, rock and rap, so it's mix of everything, every song is different. Every song is written around every character. One thing that is in common in me and my music, is that it has to draw emotion, it can't be sterile. For me I make music out of emotion. It took 12 years to finish, twenty-three songs and two hours long. "
Tell us about the story behind the new album
"The story you might as well call it is an autobiography, it might as well be called The Life and times of Aldo Nova. The story is of this young kid who plays clubs and then gets noticed by a big record company executive. Then he gets famous ( the main character) and then he goes and plays big stages, then he gets introduced to a woman by the powerful Greek record tycoon. The woman leads him down the path of drugs and he has a psychotic breakdown. It's my life story pretty much. It ends with redemption where he is happy spreading his message of faith, hope and love which he originally wanted to do from the beginning. There are 23 songs on the album and you might have maybe 19 characters."
How will this album be released? "There is either one plan where I release one song every two weeks to keep people involved. Also talks are in progress to bring this to a huge stage production which was my dream all along. "
Since 2008, Aldo Nova has been working on an exciting and challenging new project. A rock opera called 'The Life And Times Of Eddie Gage'. From it come the new track “When All Is Said And Done” "I wrote more than 100 songs for this and selected 23 songs for the final finished album."
In 1984 Aldo Nova played on the debut album from Bon Jovi, lending his credibility to the young hopeful's. Five years later, Jon Bon Jovi called on him to play a crucial role on his solo album 'Young Guns 2," which spawned the number 1 hit, "Blaze of Glory".a song that Aldo entirely arranged himself, along with writing the catchy intro phrase. The album "Young Guns 2" came out in 1990, and Aldo's input was a major factor in its success. As a result, he was signed by Jon Bon Jovi to his new label Jambco, leading to the well-received 'Blood On The Bricks' album in 1991.
Aldo has also been a major and constant factor in the career of Celine Dion, as a producer, musician, and writer. "I started working with her when she was 13 years old." During his long collaborations with her, Aldo has written songs such as "A New Day Has Come, which was number 1 in 26 countries for six months," 'Your Light," 'I Can't Fight This Feelin'' and 'You And I" amongst many others. Aldo also won a Grammy Award in 1996 as a producer of the Celine Dion album 'Falling Into You', which was Album Of The Year.
