Sopranos Star Michael Imperioli’s New Rock Release

Sopranos star Michael Imperioli’s art-rock trio Zopa returns with “Red Sky,’ their first new music since they released their debut album, La Dolce Vita, last year.

A quintessential NYC track, with a tight mix of jangle and drone that builds to a cathartic chorus, the song comes complete with a music video that sticks with the NYC theme that following two characters whose lives are changed when they unexpectedly meet while wandering around the snow-covered city.

Speaking with The AV Club, where “Red Sky” premiered, Imperioli stated: “It’s a love song and a song that celebrates having the courage to be a true individual… It was a song that came together very quickly lyrically and musically and did not need so much working and crafting unlike most of the stuff I write. I took that as a good sign.”

In addition to their new single, Zopa are scheduled to start work on their follow-up LP to La Dolce Vita and will be in the studio with veteran indie-rock producer John Agnello. The band have a pair of shows coming in Brooklyn at Baby’s All Right on Feb. 17, and then at Kung Fu Necktie in Philadelphia on Feb. 18.

Along with fronting Zopa, Imperioli will star in Season Two of Mike White’s hit HBO series The White Lotus where he plays Dominic Di Grasso who travels to an unknown locale with his elderly father and recent college graduate son.
