On her official web site, Susan Boyle has just teased details about her upcoming fourth album, to be released later in 2012, including that the theme will be - musicals!
Well, having given you all a number of clues this week I’m sure you have guessed where the inspiration for my fourth album has come from…. Musicals.
As many of you already know musicals have always been my passion and for as long as I can remember I have been captivated and inspired by songs from the film & stage.
I’m delighted that this album incorporates songs from the musicals I adore. It also seems so apt this year especially now I have my own musical.
I’ve been lucky enough to choose and record some wonderful songs from my favourite musicals and fortunate enough to record some cracking duets!
I will tell you more soon, I promise, until then I just wanted to say how happy I am with the album especially being able to record music from a golden era of film and stage.
I hope you’ll find one of your favourites among them.
Boyle became known to the world when she competed on the 2009 season of Britain's Got Talent. On that show, she sang "I Dreamed a Dream" from the musical, Les Miserables. The video of her performance went instantly viral and made her an overnight sensation. She has sold more than 14 million albums worldwide and she is the first artist to have two albums reach No. 1 on the UK and American album charts in a one year period.
The Susan Boyle musical, I DREAMED A DREAM is currently on tour, after opening earlier in 2012.
"The musical tells the story of Susan Boyle’s life, from her birth…and the hand which life dealt her…up to the present day. From her humble beginnings of being born into a large working-class family in central Scotland, and sharing a three-bedroomed council house with a family of ten…to where she is today - a global star and an inspiration to millions - a woman who beat the odds and changed the way the world looked at people.
"I DREAMED A DREAM takes the audience through the experiences which have made Susan the woman she has become; the pain of lost love, the heart-breaking tragedy and loss of the anchors in her life, and being cut adrift in a lonely, threatening world, then finding strength and solace in her faith, to the life changing experience of Britain’s Got Talent.
"An orchestra, a multitalented cast, and cutting edge multimedia technology, along with many of the well-known songs from Susan’s record-breaking albums, will take audiences on Susan’s journey for what promises to be a magical theatrical experience."
