Marco Mengoni Announces French Version of “Due Vite”

A few days before the start of his European tour, Marco Mengoni announced the release of “La Dernière Chanson,” the French version of the song “Due Vite,” on October 13.

“La Dernière Chanson”, the French version of “Due Vite”

“Due Vite,” with which Marco Mengoni won the last edition of the Sanremo Festival, achieved great success throughout Europe thanks to the fourth position reached in the Eurovision Song Contest 2023, where it also received the award for the Best Musical Composition.

Marco Mengoni’s choice to release a French version of the 4x platinum record “Due Vite” (“Two Lives”) stems from the growing attention the singer is receiving in France. “La Dernière Chanson” was rewritten by the artist together with Doriand, Edoardo D’Erme (Calcutta) and M. Venturini. Davide Simonetta produced it. The new edition of the song will not be entirely in French, as it will retain some lines in Italian.

Marco Mengoni will perform a concert in France on October 25 at a historic venue in Paris: Le Zénith. Many prestigious international artists have sung here, including Bob Dylan, Olivia Rodrigo and Radiohead.
