Produced by Dado Parisini and Alfredo Cerruti, the 11-track Las Cosas Que Defenderé (Things I'll Protect) by Italian singer/songwriter Nek delivers lyrics based on values such as love and friendship combined with contemporary sounds. This musically well-crafted album includes a guitar-driven song called "Tan Sólo Tú," recorded with Laura Pausini; the Latin pop/rock number "Cuando Tú No Estas"; a power ballad titled "Hablemos en Pasado"; and two versions of the nostalgic "Cielo y Tierra," featuring vocals by Salt Lake City, UT, native Dante Thomas. Mainly a romantic and soothing record, Las Cosas Que Defenderé was also released in an Italian-language version.
