Susan Boyle, the singing sensation who catapulted to international stardom in 2009, returns with A Wonderful World, her seventh album in seven years. A Wonderful World will be released via SYCO/Columbia Records on Friday, November 4, 2016 in the US and is currently available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon.
In a first for a British artist, Susan Boyle was granted rare permission by the Nat King Cole Estate to sing a virtual duet with the legendary performer and a stunning version of ‘When I Fall In Love’ was mastered.
Featuring spectacular renditions of well-known tracks including Madonna’s ‘Like A Prayer,’ Robbie William’s ‘Angels,’ a duet with Michael Bolton on ‘Somewhere Out There’ and Paul McCartney’s ‘Mull of Kintyre,’ A WonderfulWorld is the ultimate Christmas gift that will transcend Christmas.
Talking about her seventh album Susan said; “I have really enjoyed making this album. It was great to get back into the recording studio and do what I enjoy the most. There’s been a lot of speculation over the past year but I’m great, back on track and this album proves it. I wanted to create an album that families could enjoy, something for everyone, an album that can be played all year and evoke memories. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a huge Madonna fan and to be able to perform ‘Like A Prayer’ was a real highlight. As the first British artist to have been able to perform a duet with Nat King Cole’s vocals, it’s a real honor, seven years on I still get to surprise people.”
A Wonderful World was produced in Glasgow by Steve Anderson. Steve worked on Susan’s last album, Hope, and is a highly regarded producer who has also worked with Lionel Richie, Kylie Minogue, Emeli Sande and Westlife.
Known best for her element of surprise and a powerful and heart stopping voice, Susan is still a global top selling artist.
