2CELLOS announce new album 'Let There Be Cello'

MUMBAI: The Croatian duo of Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, better known as 2CELLOS, return this Fall with their all-new album, Let There Be Cello, set for release on 19 October via Sony Music Masterworks. A follow-up to the 2017 release of Score, Let There Be Cello finds the pair exploring a diverse catalogue with their signature boundary-breaking playing style.

“We’ve always said we want to break down pre-conceptions about the cello and the boundaries around musical genres,” says 2CELLOS on their latest project.

Further speaking, the duo adds, “This album demonstrates that we take inspiration from all sources, from pop smashes to timeless classical music, from classic rock through to our enduring love of film music. This album has a lot, including some 2CELLOS’ originals. There are no rules, just let there be cello!”

Co-produced by Sulic and Hauser, themselves, along with Filip Vidovic, Let There Be Cello is a showcase of 2CELLOS’ exceptional talent for reinventing the music of any genre. The collection includes their take on the latest pop hits, including Ed Sheeran’s Perfect and Despacito by Luis Fonsi, a fan-favorite rendition that has garnered over 30 million views on 2CELLOS YouTube alone. Known for bringing their explosive playing style to some of rock’s biggest anthems, 2CELLOS make no exception on Let There Be Cello, which features favorites Eye of the Tiger by Survivor and The White Stripes iconic Seven Nation Army, which the pair most recently performed on-field to open May’s UEFA Champions League final in Ukraine. Taking their classical instrumentation to new heights, 2CELLOS round out the newest album with everything from celebrated classics to never-before-heard original compositions for a listening experience unlike any other.

Giving fans a preview of what to expect from the group’s latest chapter, 2CELLOS just released a brand-new visual for their rendition of Vivaldi Storm. Filmed in their native Croatia, the video finds Sulic and Hauser performing in the center of a rock quarry. With explosive lighting and dynamic camerawork, the visual perfectly mirrors the exhilarating drama and suspense of the Vivaldi composition, culminating in a climactic onslaught of rain as the performance comes to an end.

“We love the drama of Vivaldi. So we thought we’d bring a 2CELLOS storm to one of his best known pieces,” says 2CELLOS. For this track we needed a suitably dramatic and beautiful location for the video, which we found in a quarry near Pula, Croatia. Summer is here but there is a storm coming,” they signed off.

Well, 2CELLOS is creating a good hype, much prior to the release of their album and fans can’t wait for it to drop online, next month.
