Once again, brazilian singer-songwriter João Suplicy returns with the release of his latest single called 'Intimidade' (translated as Intimacy). Written and interpreted by himself in a brazilian rhythm known as 'Xote', along with all its easiness and nonchalance, it expresses the pleasure of a relationship with its own particular codes, the intimacy of nicknames between two people, and the desire to share the good moments created by this special coexistence.
The track, produced by Sergio Fouad, brings the sound of flutes performed by Jorge Continentino and Guga Stroiter's vibraphones, thus giving the complement to the tenderness and softness of this work, in addition to the backing vocals of João himself.
As well as its release on Friday, February 5th, the song's got its own music video, filmed by João's girlfriend, Ligia Hansen, in a very unpretentious manner, as if it was made for a personal record, having nonetheless the stunning and unique landscape of Chapada dos Veadeiros, located at the state of Goiás, in Brazil, and very well known for its dramatic canyons, waterfalls and quartz crystal rock formations.
