Nashville, TN-based frontman John Corabi has released his new single, “Cosi Bella (So Beautiful).” The song is now available on all digital platforms here. A video of the song can be viewed below.
“Cosi Bella (So Beautiful)” was produced and co-written in Nashville, TN, with Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne). “Cosi Bella (So Beautiful)” is the first of several new singles to come.
“Cosi Bella” grew out of a writing session I did with Marti for The Dead Daisies Burn It Down album,” Corabi says. “I had the idea for the opening verse and a chorus that didn’t didn’t quite work for the melody. I played it for Marti, and he liked the idea but gave me a better idea for the chorus. We recorded the rough idea on my phone, each of between us just scattering the melody. The Daisies heard the idea but felt it didn’t quite fit their format, so I put it to bed for a bit. After leaving the band in 2019, I started revisiting some old ideas I had and sat down and recorded the track. Being new to ProTools I pushed the song as far as I could and sent it to Marti for review. ‘she produced it. I explained that the song was musically inspired to some degree by The Beatles’ ‘Penny Lane’ and Queen’s ‘Killer Queen’, so Mart i and his son Evan recut the drums and bass, added some horns and sprinkled their magic pixie dust on the track to give it that shiny, polished sound! I wrote the lyrics, and after singing the song, I felt “So Beautiful” was kind of a middle title, so I looked up those words in a translation app and found them in Italian ( Cosi Bella) and I felt it had a nice ringtone to it! It’s not what some people really expect from me, but I LOVE the way the song went, and it’s just a happy, upbeat little love song with a twist! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
