ATO RECORDS TO RELEASE JOVANOTTI’S ITALIA 1988-2012
ON AUGUST 7

Beloved Italian Artist Will Perform in Select North American Cities This Summer

The 2011 Bonnaroo performance by the polyglot Tuscan artist Jovanotti (nee Lorenzo Cherubini) won over American live music fans, critics and industry alike. Among those taken by Jovanotti’s artistry and charisma was the leadership of ATO Records, which will introduce American audiences to him with Italia 1988-2012, a career retrospective including four new tracks, on August 7. This is the artist’s first physical album of studio recordings to be released in the U.S., and the first time much of the material has been released here in any format.
