      Written and composed from March to May 2020, RUIBAL, is the new installment by Javier Ruibal. In CD-Book format, it contains 12 unpublished songs -plus “INTEMPERIE”- The Goya Awarded as “Best Original song 2020” of the homonymous film by Benito Zambrano. In addition, the songs are accompanied by 13 unpublished stories and 13 original watercolors by Sonia Alonso, one for each song.

      The author intends to return to the album the emotional value it always had, hence this Book-album proposal, so that it once again becomes a precious object in the hands of those who receive it.

      Very surprising in form, title and content, all the songs reflect a remarkable evolution from previous albums. Different themes and approaches, in which there is no lack of emotion and humor, areas widely explored by Javier Ruibal.

      Titles such as "Astronomy", "Quantum Physics", "Room of Absentees", "Music in Vein"... give an idea of the content, which goes far beyond the mere enunciation of each song. Ruibal has deepened in a literature where new concepts are combined with poetic modes of great depth. His eagerness to offer beauty and sobriety continue in the tone of excellence to which he has accustomed us since his first album. As far as music is concerned, he offers us a lot and very interesting. From his heterodoxy of Andalusian and universal composer, as it is already a tradition in his works, he achieves again spaces of meeting between all the planetary music.

      Those values that gave him the National Award for Actual Music in 2017 are widely endorsed in this album where he has completely poured his capacity of concentration and his demonstrated evocative ability.

      There is a lot of love and a lot of humor in this work coming out of the hardest months of confinement in which, far from falling into the predictable sadness and melancholy, it has been focused on a very complete work, full of maturity and freshness. It is a healing balm for any listener in this crucial moment of surviving of the human being.

      Parables about sanity as a "Room of Absentees"; labyrinthine exercises, almost tongue twisters, and full of humor as "Quantum Physics", "I Am the One who Sang to You" or "Music in vein"; ballads of great beauty such as "Astronomy"; claims about our African origin, "I Am African"; a waste of the humor from Cadiz in "Musa" or in the bulerias "Only the Dose Makes the Poison", have their culmination in two beautiful songs, two reflections about the brutal isolation that we have suffered while the Internet has prevent us from falling, to a certain extent, into paranoid states: "Love on the Net" and " Masked Ball".
