NEW IDAN RAICHEL ALBUM OUT NOW

January 31, 2019 — 
Sixteen years after his first hit single catapulted him to stardom, And If You Will Come to Me promises to be the most impactful album of Idan Raichel’s illustrious career.  And If You Will Come to Me reflects the next phase in a personal journey that began nearly three years ago when he put his 14-piece supergroup The Idan Raichel Project on hiatus and began performing more intimate solo and small ensemble concerts. 

Along with guest musicians from Japan, Bulgaria, Ethiopia, Cuba and India, And If You Will Come to Me features duets with African guitar wizard Bombino, Cuban GRAMMY nominee Danay Suarez, Israeli stars Berry Sakharof and Zehava Ben, and a special new studio track with the reunited Idan Raichel Project

The album’s title track (“Ve'Eem Tavo'ee Elay” in Hebrew) has already become one of Idan’s biggest hits ever in Israel, with over 20 million streams on YouTube alone, and the singles from the album have racked up a total of almost 40 million YouTube plays. Idan will be supporting the release of And If You Will Come to Me with four arena shows in Tel Aviv followed by an extensive international tour in March 2019 that will see him performing in the USA, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and more. 

The release of And If You Will Come to Me marks a new stage in Idan’s ongoing personal and artistic journey, but it also reflects a rediscovery of his original inspirations. “We always want to evolve and search for new things,” reflects Idan, “Sometimes you need to travel far away just to come back to the beginning.” In the end, no matter how far he wanders, Idan always returns to the eternal themes that have long been at the core of his work. “We can talk with many metaphors in many subjects and themes, but at the end of the day, write about longing, write about love, write about home, and you just look at it from a different perspective. That's the whole story.”
