Matteo Bocelli has shared his new single, “Chasing Stars.” Written by Ed Sheeran and his brother Matthew Sheeran, the sweeping ballad showcases Matteo’s upper register. “When I was younger, my father was my hero / Let me hop on his shoulders, we sang to the moon,” Matteo sings as the song opens, and goes on to tell a story about a father encouraging his son to “be who you are.” Listen to “Chasing Stars,” which was produced by PARISI (Ed Sheeran, Fred Again),  HERE.

Ed Sheeran recalls, “‘Chasing Stars’ was written by me and my brother Matthew about our father, and how he was supportive to us when we were younger with our music. I love the finished version with Matteo, he’s such a talent. I hope everyone else enjoys it!”

The song’s messages of family and finding oneself resonated strongly with Bocelli. “Like the Sheeran brothers, I grew up in a family where music was very appreciated,” says Matteo Bocelli, who has performed on some of the world’s biggest stages alongside his father, renowned tenor Andrea Bocelli. “Ed and Matthew wrote the song, but it seems like they wrote it for me. I really feel privileged to be the first to record it.”
