RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. Ah, Italy; ah, romance. But the home of Romeo and Juliet had been deprived of "True Love." That's the title of Silvio Berlusconi's new album - yes, he writes love songs. It was to be released in September but was rumored to be delayed because he was busy with Italy's economic woes and his legal troubles.
Finally, love triumphs. Now, he's resigned. He has more time for his music career, and his album is out this month.
It's MORNING EDITION.
