Manuel Carrasco will start the tour The cross of the map May 4 in Valladolid, continuing throughout the peninsula with a staging with a very personal character, according to the artist. His previous tour Dance to the Wind It was seen by more than 300,000 people. And it is that Manuel Carrasco, who published Dance the wind three years ago, he had marked this day for the release of his eighth album, The cross of the map. On November 2 presented They told me how small, who followed him Let me be Y Call me crazy. An album that is born from such a good personal moment inevitably ends with a great result. If, in addition, the artist stays true to his sound, it is more wonderful if possible. This is what Manuel Carrasco has done in these 14 stories, filling them with magic through poetry.
The cross of the map start with the first two singles They told me how small Y Let me be, where Manuel Carrasco is always seen. The first days It is the third topic in which he talks about that love that drives you crazy. I like it it is a song of unconditional love, with virtues and defects, and I see you among the people, a ballad that arrives. With go away comes the most vindicating theme of the album in which he makes a critique of machismo and calls for the freedom of all and, above all, of women. To avoid injustice and gender violence. They follow him Call me crazy that talks about destiny, How nice it is to love, a homage to friendship, and If you are here in which he makes a promise. And the most special song on the album arrives, My only flag, dedicated to his daughter Chloe, who has changed the world and the life of the artist. TI look for the stars is one of the songs with more rhythm of the disc, passing to the intimacy of I had to say it and the piano. The cross of the map ends with Always strong, which deals with the current situation in the world with refugees and immigrants.
