Marco Mengoni, the Italian stallion we so vividly remember from the Eurovision 2013 final in Malmö, still smoulders.

And the latest proof comes via the video for his new single “Invencible,” which all you linguists can deduce means invincible. He’s left his signature suits at home is is spicing things up Latino-style in this Spanish-language track from his upcoming Spanish album Liberando Palabras.

“Invencible” is not the first time Marco has used his tongue to great effect with the Spanish language. He hit the charts in Spain back in 2014 with the EP Pronto a correre Spain, which included the three songs “Incomparable”, “Nunca se irá” and “No me detendré”.

And last December he announced — to the pleasure of his Spanish fans — that he would release an entire album focusing on the Spanish market. The album is due in January, but for now you can feast your eyes and ears on the video for “Invencible” — Marco’s ode to his one true love, who stays with him, no matter how dark the days…

It’s a heartfelt power ballad. If all the songs are as touching and beautiful as this, we may just need Marco to sing in Spanish permanently. You can read the English-language translation of “Invencible” at the end of this post.

Of course, Marco isn’t letting his Italian slip. He’s also recently released two other singles.
“Parole in circulo” ups the tempo a bit, while “Solo due satelliti” takes on a hostage situation…and sees Marco steaming it up in the process. As you do.

What are your thoughts on Marco Mengoni´s precious gift to Spanish speaking fans all over the world, along with his two other singles? Should we write a petition in order to get him back to Eurovision?

Invincible — English lyrics

Five in the morning and a station
The fog seems like a slow storm
The wind marks the face like a back
But I disarm the cold because

You are with me, you are with me
You are with me, you are with me
And I feel invincible

Another airplane is about to take off
But the heart stays on the ground to wait
It’s not like it fears to fly
It’s just that it never wants to leave

You are with me, you are with me
You are with me

It’s just another day
Everything moves inside
Even if the world is a great mess
You breathe near me and you’ll see me
Taking the flight
I need another day
To build up a world
In which it is easy to watch
into the same direction
And in your eyes
to find a piece of me

I look at the lighted windows
Each one implies a lot of stories
Who knows if they make war or peace
After all I keep on going

You are with me, you are with me
You are with me, you are with me
And I feel invincible

It’s just another day
Everything moves inside
Even if the world is a great mess
You breathe near me and you’ll see me
Taking the flight
I need another day
To build up a world
In which it is easy to watch
into the same direction
And in your eyes
to find a piece of me

It’s just another day
Everything moves inside
Even if the world is a great mess
You breathe near me and you’ll see me
Taking the flight
I need another day
To conquer the world
Even if you’re far away
I’ll think of you near
And I’ll take your picture with me
With you
I feel invincible.

Is “Invencible” a new song or a Spanish version of one of his previous Italian tracks? Likewise with the new album…new or no?

He hasn’t been back to Sanremo since he won in 2013. I would expect him back in 2017, as he is due for a new album next year and a Sanremo entry would be a great lead single. If he enters, he’ll win.
