Albert began his career singing and playing guitar for a number of bands. In 1973, at a time when many Brazilian artists were using anglicised names in attempts to break into the U.S. market, he released his first album, which featured "Feelings", the self-penned song that would eventually bring him worldwide success. The international release of "Feelings" sold over one million copies in the United States alone, and reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1975, and #2 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart.

En somme, je vais parler de ceux que j'aimais, écrit Albert Camus dans une note pour Le premier homme. Le projet de ce roman auquel il travaillait au moment de sa mort était ambitieux. Il avait dit un jour que les écrivains gardent l'espoir de retrouver les secrets d'un art universel qui, à force d'humilité et de maîtrise, ressusciterait enfin les personnages dans leur chair et dans leur durée. …
