Sony Music Entertainment Australia is proud to release TWO STRONG HEARTS LIVE, the new live album from John Farnham and Olivia Newton-John.
Together, Farnham and Newton-John’s voices are bound up in the collective DNA of Australian music lovers. Recorded in Melbourne with Philharmonia Australia, the twenty-one track album features sixteen duets with two of Australia’s most iconic singers.
With a 60-piece orchestra behind them, Farnham and Newton-John recently sold out houses around the country. With Chong Lim leading the orchestra alongside Farnham’s core band and singers, audiences were treated to a thrilling series of gigs that saw each artist dig into their own personal songbook with stunning results.
Highlights on the album include ‘Two Strong Hearts’, ‘Let Me Be There’, ‘Xanadu’, the Peter Allen penned ‘I Honestly Love You’ and a sublime ‘Tenterfield Saddler’, ‘Dare To Dream’ (first heard at the Sydney OLYMPICS 2000), ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’, ‘Burn For You’ and the jazz/blues hybrid of ‘Hit The Road Jack’ and ‘Fever’. Hearing Farnham and Newton-John work through ‘You’re The One That I Want’ and ‘Summer Nights’ from the Grease soundtrack is joyous, funny and downright brilliant.
In the final furlong you’ll hear ‘Hearts On Fire’, ‘If Not For You’ and a re-working of John’s hit with Human Nature, ‘Every Time You Cry’. ‘Physical’ had every room the pair played whilst on tour on their feet. Throw in a powerhouse ‘You’re The Voice’ and a stunning cover of AC/DC’s ‘It’s A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock And Roll)’, where the mix of rock n’ roll electricity and orchestra absolutely rocks.
