“I Miss You Amore” – a romantic new single from Matteo Bocelli, Sukriti Kakar, Prakriti Kakar, composer/producer Amaal Mallik and lyricist/producer Kunaal Vermaa – was released by Capitol Records/Universal Music Canada. Together, they tell an evocative, universal tale of love, loss and regret with Matteo singing in English and twin sisters Sukriti and Prakriti Kakar singing in Hindi. Matteo wrote the song with Amaal Mallik, Shridhar Solanki and Kunaal Vermaa. Listen to “I Miss You Amore” HERE. The official video will be unveiled on Valentine’s Day, February 14.
Sukriti and Prakriti Kakar, who are twin sisters, come from the world of Bollywood as does Amaal Mallik. All three artists have also earned acclaim for their non-film work, including their 2021 collaboration on a remix of Dua Lipa’s “Levitating.”
“The first time I heard the melody Amaal had created I knew we were going to make something really special,” recalls Matteo Bocelli. “It’s been such an honor to work with Sukriti and Prakriti, who’ve introduced me to so much incredible Indian culture I’d never experienced before and I’m overwhelmed by the support I’ve received from India. There’s been so much interest in this project and, after what feels like forever, everyone finally gets to hear it.”
Amaal Malik said, “I’m ecstatic to be collaborating with a group of such talented artists. This song’s composition was a true joy for me….It was truly special to be creating ‘I Miss You Amore’ along with the young and very gifted musician, Italian music royalty Matteo Bocelli. I’m glad we had the supreme power in our corner that night when the melody was created simultaneously here in India and Italy.”
He added, “Kunaal Vermaa and I are coming together yet again and whenever that happens people have a lotta expectations and I’m happy to state that this song’s lyrics, the pristine and heartfelt rendition by Matteo, Sukriti and Prakriti and the simplicity of the melody is gonna beautifully break a lot of hearts. The girls and I are coming together post our last song together, which too was a global collaboration with Dua Lipa, and yet again we three are taking Indian Music to the world. This is our heartfelt gift our fan clubs of #Amaalians & #Supratics and there couldn’t have been a better gift for them this Valentine’s Day than THIS song.”
