Julio Iglesias: Still has a lot to achieve.

20-08-2013
International superstar Julio Iglesias will be giving a concert at Palma's bullring on August 14, and he gave a telephone interview to the Bulletin yesterday morning.

What will you be offering us in Majorca?
It will be a very varied recital. I will be singing a little of everything, from the songs from my new record, Noche de Cuatro Lunas (Night of Four Moons) to evergreens.

Is the fact that you will be singing songs which are so old a symptom of something?
First, that one has a long career, and secondly, that people remember what you have done. It is a good sign. Artists have periods and cycles and they are all remembered. The same happens with singers. One of the things which most moves me is to see twentysomethings singing songs which were composed before they were born.

Tell us something of Noche de Cuatro Lunas.
It's an incidental album. When I finished it, I thought it was good, but I am not very satisfied with it now. It is not a landmark album. I have made 75 records, and they can't all be landmarks, that why I say it is incidental.

That's not what one expects to hear from an artist promoting his latest record.
Why shouldn't I say so if I feel that way? The title is the best part of the disc. What happened, is that I did not have much to do with it. Four producers were involved and I did not take part. I like be involved with the discs so the mistakes are mine.

Do you think you deserve your success?
Success is not deserved, one seeks it. Deserving of success is the worker who has to make a life for his family and seven children.

But you must have some secret to have stayed at the top of the tree for more than 30 years.
If I knew the secret of success I would not be giving this interview because it would not be necessary. I suppose that success lies in getting up earlier than others and going to bed later. Working a lot and being open to everything. I also think that inspiration counts a lot. Success is a magic formula that, if we were more sincere, we would say it is very selective and privileged. When you are successful it looks as though everything is easy, but that's not true. Success is very relative and maintaining it is difficult.
