Belinda Carlisle, best known to fans worldwide for her hugely successful solo career as well as the lead vocalist/songwriter of one of the most successful female bands of all time, The Go-Go's, is the latest artist to get the ICON treatment with the release of Belinda Carlisle - ICON on March 19 through Universal Music Enterprises (UMe).
Carlisle was recently inspired to return to the studio where she recorded a new track, "Sun." The new track is exclusively available physically on this ICON collection as well as digitally available on BEST OF, both of which bring Carlisle's biggest hits together on one album. "Sun" will also be available for download as a digital single as well.
The first all-female band to write their own music and play their own instruments, The Go-Go's, were the first to achieve a No. 1 album, Beauty and the Beat, which featured the hits "We Got the Beat" and "Our Lips Are Sealed." Although The Go-Go's disbanded in 1985, Belinda Carlisle embarked on a solo career. Her Gold-certified solo album debut, Belinda, was released in 1986 and featured the #3 hit single "Mad About You." Carlisle returned with her second solo album in 1987, releasing Heaven on Earth whichshot to Platinum certification within a few months, fueled by its #1 smash single, "Heaven Is A Place On Earth," the #2 hit "I Get Weak," and the Top 10 "Circle in the Sand." Runaway Horses, Carlisle's Gold-certified third solo album, was released in 1989 and included the hits "Leave a Light On" and "Summer Rain" all of which are featured on the ICON release.
