Sony Music Entertainment Australia is delighted to announce the release of an incredible new album from Sir Cliff Richard, the UK’s most successful hit-maker of all time. JUST… FABULOUS ROCK ‘N’ ROLL will be released on Friday November 11th, 2016.
Sir Cliff has returned to his roots to record a new selection of his favourite songs from the golden era of rock ‘n’ roll. These include Sir Cliff’s renditions of seminal tracks such as ‘Roll Over Beethoven’, ‘Great Balls of Fire’, ‘Sweet Little Sixteen’ and his very own debut single, ‘Move It’. The album also features a duet with fellow idol Elvis Presley on ‘Blue Suede Shoes’. This has been a career long dream of Sir Cliff’s, which has now become a reality. The new release follows the huge success of his last studio album, THE FABULOUS ROCK ‘N’ ROLL SONGBOOK in 2013, and the celebratory 75 AT 75 – 75 CAREER SPANNING HITS in 2015.
Cliff Richard released his debut single ‘Move It’ in August 1958. It is credited with being the first British rock ‘n’ roll hit, bringing what had previously been an American genre across the Atlantic, for the first time. JUST… FABULOUS ROCK ‘N’ ROLL will astonishingly be his 101st album.
Sir Cliff Richard said: “Not only do I find it hard to believe that my career has spanned this length of time, but also that I still get the chance to do the thing I love best, and that is to get into a studio! My new CD is another dip into an incredible period of our musical history. A happy, creative, and in many ways an innocent time. I will always love this music, but more importantly I hope you do too. “ROCK ON”.”
JUST… FABULOUS ROCK ‘N’ ROLL was recorded in the legendary Blackbird studio in Nashville, Tennessee and includes classics originally recorded by many of SirCliff’s heroes including Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Chuck Berry, Bobby Darin,Phil & Don Everly, Sam Cooke and even John Lee Hooker. The album closes with a new, original track, ‘It’s Better to Dream’.
