Matteo Bocelli has been following in the footsteps of his famous father Andrea Bocelli by seeking a career in singing. Back in 2018, the pair released their duet Fall On Me, which featured in the Disney movie The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. But since then, Matteo has been gearing up to launch his very own solo album.
And just over the weekend, Matteo shared a video of himself singing Stevie Wonder’s I Just Called to Say I Love You.
In the Instagram video, the 23-year-old played the piano and had a huge smile on his face.
Wonder released I Just Called to Say I Love You in 1984 as a single on his soundtrack album The Woman in Red.
The song is the singer’s best-selling track to date, having topped a record 19 charts.

Matteo captioned the video: “I just called to say… stay tuned! 😉 I just called to say… stay tuned! ;).”
What could this be but a tease from Andrea’s son for his upcoming debut solo album? Back in April, the rising star spoke of an “incredible project” that he’s been working on for release in 2022.
Sharing a picture of himself riding a horse on Instagram, he captioned it: “Getting my gallop on! There’s no thrill like it.
“I had the pleasure of rediscovering horse riding recently for an incredible project. I can’t wait for you all to see it next year…”
So what could Matteo be up to? Well having performed with his father in Saudi Arabia earlier this year, he wrote on social media: “Sooo good to be back on stage singing after almost a year.
“AlUla has been a blast and I can’t wait to travel the world next year with some new music. Any suggestions?”
By the sounds of it, the 23-year-old will be setting off on tour in 2022, so maybe his solo album will arrive before the end of this year?
Meanwhile, the concert in AlUla, Saudi Arabia marked the first time that Andrea Bocelli had performed with both Matteo and daughter Virginia at the same event.
Andrea wrote on his Instagram account at the time: “I leave AI-Ula with a wealth of memories and emotions that no suitcase can contain. I carry with me the yearning to return to sing in the Middle East as soon as possible, a nostalgia for the deep silences I experienced in the desert, for the crystalline air I breathed there.
“I leave with the giddiness of the story that the stones of that archaeological paradise tell, as well as the privilege of having been able to touch them, ideally, with my singing. Finally, I leave with a great and private gift that, until recently, I had considered unattainable…
“For the first time, three Bocellis sang on stage together with their own voices: Virginia and Matteo, alongside their dad. Family is music in itself, it is the score that restores life’s harmony.
“My family is my strength, and it was so sweet to have them beside me in the enchantment of AI-Ula, a place that speaks to the heart and bears witness to a much larger family, of which we are all part, the one – thousands of years old – that unites the world in an immense, interconnected community.”
