'Italian legend Conte, who the UK’s @theGuardian once described as a “Maestro of a lost elegance” is almost mythical in his home country of Italy. A songwriter from another age, Conte’s rough and rumbling voice has been a part of the country’s DNA for over forty- five years.

Fassine have reimagined the largely instrumental original about the eponymous Max with their usual cinematic and bombastic approach. Says Sarah Palmer “We were in the studio late one night and were debating about how to record the small section of Italian in the song. Not being Italian we were concerned that our English accents would destroy the song. We wandered down to grab a coffee and Stefano and Fabrizio of Arqtic just happened to be there. We couldn’t believe our luck and asked them if they would do the vocal. Initially, they were a bit skeptical owing to the fact that the song was so strange and niche, but they ended up not only doing the vocal part but also contributing musically to the song. One of those serendipitous moments that worked big time”.
