Fito Paez, the Argentine rock legend, today celebrates his 57th birthday with the release of his album La Conquista Del Espacio.
Eight of the nine tracks of La Conquista Del Espacio are solely written by Fito, while “Ey, You!” is a co-write with Hernán Coronel of the inner-city cumbia group Mala Fama. It was recorded at Capitol Studios (Hollywood), Ocean Way Nashville Studio and Igloo Music (Burbank).
Production is handled by Fito Paez, Diego Olivero and Gustavo Borner. In addition to contributions from his touring band members of Diego Olivero, Juani Agüero and Juan Absatz, the album features the return of his former bass player Guillermo Vadalá, who played on nine of his albums, including the iconic El Amor Despúes Del Amor (1992). It also includes the renowned California-born drummer Abraham Laboriel Jr. (Paul McCartney, Sting).
Guest musicians include such greats as: Juanes, Lali, María Campos, Ca7riel, Franco Saglietti, Mateo Sujatovich, Hernán Coronel and Nacho Godoy.
Orchestration and direction of Nashville Music Scoring is handled by Ezequiel Silberstein, with string-section arrangements provided by Fito himself.
