Singer/songwriter Luis Figueroa is kicking off his new era with a preview of his new album with the single and video “Hasta El Sol De Hoy.” This single is out now on all digital-music outlets via Sony Music Latin/Magnus Media.
“Hasta El Sol De Hoy” comes in two versions, acoustic and salsa, both of which will be included on his upcoming debut album Canciones Del Alma.
Written by Oscar Domingo Derudi, this song first rose to prominence in 1993 when it was recorded by Edgar Joel y Su Orquesta, whose vocalist at the time was Anthony Colón, Figueroa’s uncle.
Produced by Figueroa and arranged by the Ecuadorian musician Homero Gallardo, the acoustic version graces this classic of the salsa romántica genre with a gorgeous interplay of guitar and vocals. The lyrics speak of the hope of reconciliation after a breakup.
The salsa version, which is to be included on the album as a bonus, is a throwback to his roots in tropical music and was produced by Jay Lugo (Víctor Manuelle) in Puerto Rico.
Figueroa says about the song, “‘Hasta El Sol De Hoy’ talks about not losing faith and hope in love. It’s one of those songs that lives within me, that has transformed me into the artist that I am today. It is one of my songs from the soul.”
Fans will be able to hear the same themes in his upcoming album Canciones Del Alma, featuring songs that were key to the musical formation of the artist who as a boy was asked by visiting salsa singers to join them on stage thanks to his stunning voice.
The music videos for both versions were filmed in Miami by the Argentine director Leonardo Linkowski.
