His concert video, Pedro Capo: En Letra de Otro
is to premiere August 11 on HBO Latino
MIAMI (June 26, 2017) – Today the Puerto Rican singer, songwriter and actor Pedro Capó releases his single and video «Azúcar Amargo» (Bitter Sugar), the 1990s synth-pop classic originally recorded by the Mexican chanteuse Fey. This song is available from all digital-music stores, and the video can be viewed on his VEVO channel.
Pedro Capó brings out all the sentiment of this song about a relationship that provokes contradictory and passionate feelings.
«Azúcar Amargo» is the first single from his forthcoming album En Letra De Otro (In the Lyrics of Others), a project dedicated to great 1990s songs that have never before been covered. It’s a new concept for Pedro Capó, who has always been known for recording his own material.
He was just a teenager when this song first went to #1 on the Latin pop charts. But it wasn’t until recently that he took the time to study the song’s lyrics, coming away impressed by their perceptive wisdom.
After experimenting with different arrangements, he settled on an acoustic-framed production which brings out new meaning in the song and sets the tone for the other tracks on En Letra De Otro.
At 9 p.m., Friday, August 11, HBO Latino will premiere a concert video by Pedro Capó which features all of the album’s songs. Titled Pedro Capo: En Letra De Otro, this program will also give Pedro time to talk about why he chose each of the album’s songs, which were originally recorded by such artists as Selena, Chayanne, Jon Secada, Jerry Rivera, Luis Miguel, Calle 13, OV7, and Donato y Estéfano.
It can be said that Pedro Capó comes from island royalty – his grandparents are the legendary singer-songwriter Bobby Capó and the former Miss Puerto Rico Irma Nydia Vázquez. Pedro Capó, however, launched his musical career in a very independent way, motivated only by his need to write songs and to express himself.
His acting career has recently taken him to new heights, as he has landed a starring role in the hit Telemundo series Guerra De Ídolos (War of Music Idols).
The nostalgia of the 1990s is in good hands with the fresh and unique perspective that Pedro Capó gives to «Azúcar Amargo«.
