The noms are for his debut solo album Solstis
Leon Larregui, lead singer of Zoé, receives two Latin Grammy nominations for his debut solo album, Solstis. He’s nominated for Best Alternative Music Album and Best Alternative Song for the track “Brillas.”
Solstis debuted No. 1 on the charts with its physical edition just one week after being released. The digital album also reached No. 1 on the iTunes digital store in Mexico. Solstis was recorded at the Hippocampus Studio in Paris. Jack Lahana is the recording and mixing engineer while Adanoswsky is the producer.
“Solstis, is a project that I wanted to do for a few years but had not had the chance to. The concept was born from ‘Brillas’. This song is a love song, a bolero, and was born at a time in my life where I was in a relationship, in the brightest part of it. ‘Brillas’, became my guide and was the beginning of the songwriting process of the album, hinting and honoring a lot of music I love, romantic music of other eras, from Agustin Lara and José José, to Serge Gainsbourg, to name a few”, adds Leon Larregui.
The XIIII edition of the Latin Grammy Awards will take place at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in the city of Las Vegas on November 21st and will be broadcast on the Univision Network.
