Andres Cepeda: "Emotional, Romantic Aspect Is What All My Albums Have in Common"

Andrés Cepeda is one seriously hopeless romantic. Who else would moan something like, "When there is no one left in this world to love you, I will be here to tell you I will wait for you until I die"?
That kind of over-the-top passion is what the Colombian crooner's latest album, Lo Mejor Que Hay En Mi Vida, or The Best That's In My Life, is all about.
"It's a record with very romantic songs," Cepeda concedes. "It reflects a moment of peace and love. It has songs where I discuss my experiences during the past three years."
Maybe the success of Cepeda's 2009 release, Dia Tras Dia, or Day After Day, for which he was nominated for three Latin Grammys and snagged Spain's 40 Principales award for Best Male Pop Artist, among other accolades, has something to do with those "moment[s] of peace and love" described on his new record.
"Dia Tras Dia had very good songs and I had lots of support. It had lots of magic and led me to more people and gave me more exposure," the singer says, comparing the two albums.
"Lo Mejor Que Hay En Mi Vida is like the brother of Dia Tras Dia. In terms of sound and structure, it's similar. But if you look at all of my albums, you see an evolution of a sound that's more organic," he points out.
"The emotional, romantic aspect is what all my albums have in common. I like for my albums to have personal elements so people can connect to the music."
