He is one of Malta’s leading pop stars, who’s music has charted in several countries including Italy, Sweden and Indonesia. And Fabrizio Faniello’s multiple appearances at MESC have even led to two performances at the Eurovision Song Contest (2001 and 2006).

Since then, he has had a very public battle with depression and drug addiction. However, that’s all over now.

Fabrizio is bouncing back with a new 13 track album, Unexpected — with the title track serving as the second single.

The piano led ballad unveils an emotional side to the “I Do” singer.

Written by David Neisser and Michael James Down, “Unexpected” mirrors the build of contemporary gospel tracks with a choir backing during the latter half of the song.

Today marks the premiere of the song’s official video, which you can see first here on wiwibloggs.

The clip depicts the love of a elderly couple, as Fabrizio sings to a dancing ballerina. “Unexpected” is a delicate song, and the music video captures this essence.

Speaking exclusively to wiwibloggs, Claudia Faniello’s big brother explains:

“Life is a beautiful treasure, just sometimes we forget how precious it is. I hope my new single “Unexpected” is touching you as much as it touched me when I heard this song the very first time.

My team and I had so much fun in filming this video and telling this emotional story. I hope you enjoy my new album, the new songs and your old favourites. La Vita e bella”

Unexpected is available on all music platforms from today.

Fabrizio Faniello “UNEXPECTED” (Lyrics)

VERSE
Like a ray of sunlight through the rain
You came into my life and washed away the pain
Took me by surprise

Everything you said and all you’ve done
Led us to the place where we became like one
Beyond the tears and lies…
Now I know

CHORUS
That you’re my one and only
Nobody could have told me
How you would come into my life
So unexpected

You felt your heart and let it guide us
Now no one will divide us
We’re never gonna let it go
This unexpected love…

VERSE
Walking through the darkness hand in hand
Endings and conclusions we don’t understand
Stories left untold

We just gotta take it step by step
Memories of moments, there are no regrets
We can have it all
Don’t you know

CHORUS
That you’re my one and only
Nobody could have told me
How you would come into my life
So unexpected

You felt your heart and let it guide us
Now no one will divide us
We’re never gonna let it go
This unexpected love…

BRIDGE
We’re running away
There’s no holding back
Through thunder and lightning
We’re staying on track

Today is the day
Our story unfolds
With you I am never alone
