From the Fylde coast to the Italian Riviera, Alfie Boe is back with the announcement of his latest album release.

With an 11-night arena tour starting on November 29, the Blackpool-born tenor will release new album Serenata on November 17.

The collection of romantic Italian songs includes the more recognisable titles Volare, My Heart Is Yours and Mambo Italiano, as well as a host of other classics.

Alfie said: “I’m always drawn back to this area of music, I think because it’s spontaneous.

“The songs themselves are simple but about the biggest and most important things: Love, loss, journeying away, coming home, family, living life.

“In Italy, this music is just in the people, a part of everyday life.

“It inspires the young and old, to dance and sing together – it makes a bridge between generations.

“And it reminds me of sharing happy times together with family and friends. Singing these songs makes me feel a part of something good.”

Serenata, which means ‘to sing in your honour’ is a collection of songs said to be ‘perfectly suited’ to the voice which has propelled him to musical stardom, as he makes the songs his own.

Boe’s tour begins in Newcastle, before heading to Liverpool’s Echo Arena on November 30 and Manchester’s Phones 4U Arena on December 6.
