FIL BO RIVA
FIL BO RIVA is back with a new song and has just announced his next studio album called ‘Modern Melancholia’ to be released in September 2023. To celebrate this new piece of music, there will be an exclusive tour in intimate venues to give his closest fans a chance to experience this emotional album as authentic as possible.
About the song, FIL BO RIVA says:
„Everything’s Illusion“ is probably the song I had lying around the longest.
It was actually supposed to be a slow ballad and appear on my first album, but I never managed to finish it. Then in 2021, during the cold Berlin winter, I picked it up again and finally finished writing it. This song reflects the feeling of infinite possibilities we have in this world: always wanting more, always wanting everything, always being able to get what we want right now. „See the moon rising, see the sun smiling, but I just want more“ clearly shows this feeling of never being satisfied with the world, our lives and the things we already have. In a way it is a hymn to today’s society and describes my personal view on an overstimulated and unreflective modern capitalistic world. Because ultimately it all boils down to one illusion: who are we as humans to know what we really need?
