Michael Ball - Both Sides Now [CD] - GB£12.99

To coincide with his forthcoming UK tour, Michael Ball has recorded a brand new CD.

Both Sides Now showcases Michael’s outstanding talents in both areas of his stellar career - musical theatre and recording studio. The album features some of his favourite pop hits together with classic songs from the musicals and some exciting new songs.

The title track, Both Sides Now, was written by Joni Mitchell in 1967 and was a huge international hit for Judy Collins; Mitchell recorded it for her own 1969 classic album ‘Clouds’ and the song has endured ever since. Joni Mitchell is Michael’s all-time favourite singer/songwriter and his version of her lyrical song is a superb interpretation.

Michael has recorded a special version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s enduring classic ‘Love Changes Everything’ with Il Divo who are special guests on the new album. Michael first recorded the song (from Aspects of Love) in 1989 when he originated the role of Alex in the West End and Broadway productions; the song became a huge hit and stayed in the pop charts for 14 weeks.

The newly composed songs on the album include The Perfect Song written by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Leslie Bricusse. This marks the first time that Lloyd Webber (Evita, Sunset Boulevard, Phantom of the Opera, Aspects of Love, The Woman in White) and Bricusse (What Kind of Fool Am I, The Candy Man, Goldfinger, You Only Live Twice) have collaborated on a song; between them the songwriting giants have won dozens of Academy Awards, Oliviers, Tonys, Grammys and their contribution to Michael’s new album is something of a musical coup.
