Andrew Lloyd Webber Deluxe LP Box Set -featuring Beyonce, Lana Del Rey, Madonna- Announced

Following the success of UNMASKED: THE PLATINUM COLLECTION, which reached the #1 spot in the UK Compilations Chart, Andrew Lloyd Webber continues his 70th birthday celebrations with release of the collection as a five LP box set

The box set features recently recorded songs from renowned artists Nicole Scherzinger (“Memory”, Cats), Gregory Porter (“Light at the End of the Tunnel”, Starlight Express) and Lana Del Rey (“You Must Love Me”, Evita).

It also contains recordings by world-class performers such as Barbra Streisand, Madonna, Michael Crawford, Sarah Brightman, Michael Ball, and released for the first time, Beyonce singing “Learn To Be Lonely” from the 2005 Academy Awards with Lloyd Webber accompanying on piano.

The Orchestral Suites proved such a highlight of the 4CD version of UNMASKED: THE PLATINUM COLLECTION, that Andrew requested a special selection of them were gathered together for the exclusive fifth record of the vinyl box set. This will be the first time many of the tracks have ever been released on LP, making this set truly unique. “I particularly love the new tracks and of course I love the orchestral suites”, says Lloyd Webber. “There’s nothing a composer likes more than hearing their melodies played by a cracking orchestra”.

The collection is personally curated and overseen by Lloyd Webber, and is half-speed mastered at Abbey Road by Miles Showell, also containing a 20-page booklet with specially written tributes from Barbra Streisand, Glenn Close, Michael Crawford and Tim Rice among others.

Of the release, Lloyd Webber says, “I owe everyone involved in putting this compilation together a huge thank you. A vast amount of thought has evidently gone into selecting tracks from my almost fifty-year-old career.”

It’s been a memorable 70th birthday for Andrew Lloyd Webber, who as well as releasing #1 album UNMASKED: THE PLATINUM COLLECTION, marked the year by publishing his new autobiography UNMASKED – offering a fascinating insight into his remarkable rise as one of the nation’s most prestigious composers. Additionally, he renamed the New London Theatre, currently home to School Of Rock, after the late legendary West End choreographer Gillian Lyne – the first time a West End theatre has been named after a woman.
