Spanish singer-songwriter Enrique Iglesias, the star of closing night at the Cap Roig Festival, went for musical eclecticism on the eve of releasing his latest album, of which he has already made public the single "Turn the Night Up," a number well received by his fans.
In an interview with Efe in the gardens of Cap Roig in northeastern Spain, Iglesias said that, if he learned anything from his previous work "Euphoria," it's that "being musically eclectic and diverse and being able to put aside for the moment what you feel comfortable with is a good thing."
"You never know about discs," the singer said in reference to the reception he expects for his new album, and would only say that he feels "satisfied" with all the songs he has written up to now.
The evolution of his career is in any case unquestionable, as shown by his performance at Cap Roig, which combined some melodic numbers from his early days with the dance music he has taken to lately.
"The changes in music result from the things that happen in your life, or just possibly from the influence of other artists," said Enrique Iglesias, who admits that songs like "Experiencia Religiosa" have "nothing to do" with other more recent ones like "Tonight."
The artist passed part of his career in review Friday night at Cap Roig, where he hosted the closing of a festival that opened on July 26 and was entertained by such international artists as Mark Knopfler, Diana Krall, Katie Melua, and by Spaniards including Pablo Alboran, Malu and Rosario.
