Philip Vella celebrates Father’s Day with new song

A mere couple of days before Father Day, singer-songwriter Philip Vella has released a brand new single ‘Pa‘ (Dad), which he wrote both the music and lyrics to.

Although it is rather different to the sound we’re used to hearing from Vella, the message is clear, and those listening will have the opportunity to think about their father, and the relationship that they have.

Naf li tard, ħafna tard… nixtieq narak.” (“I know it’s too late, but I wish I could see you”) says Vella in the lyrics.

Pa‘ is the third release from ’60+’, an album of original songs which is set to be released in the weeks to come. It follows Il-Verità, the winning song at last year’s edition of L-Għanja tal-Poplu and ‘Rajt Raġel’; which was given life during the Covid-19 epidemic.

The song is written in the form of a letter towards his father, to let him know that he walked in his footsteps.

Pa‘ is produced by Sean Vella, with German company CAP-Sounds responsible for the digital publishing and Ironic PR & Artist Management responsible for the promotion.
