Four time Brit Classical Awards winner Russell Watson has announced details of his new album, the first fruits of his new deal with FOD Records. Entitled True Stories, Watson, the only artist ever to be No.1 in the Classical Charts in the US and the UK at the same time, is set to release the album on FOD records on November 4th 2016.

The album has been produced by legendary producer Bob Rose (Roy Orbison, George Harrison) and was recorded at Ennio Morricone’s Forum Music Village Studios in Rome with the 75 piece Orchestra Italiana Del Cinema (the orchestra Morricone uses for all of his movie scores) plus members of Blondie, Portishead and Oasis/Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.

True Stories features songs including Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough, If I Loved You from Carousel, Who Can I Turn To (from The Roar of the Greasepaint), The Smell Of The Crowd – an Anthony Newley/Leslie Bircusse penned tune that Tony Bennett recorded in 1964), the Mario Lanza number With A Song In My Heart, the superbly reimagined Richard Marx tune Now and Forever and Frank Sinatra’s In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning, and an incredible version of the Lord’s Prayer.

Russell Watson has performed for some of the world’s most notable figures including The Queen (on numerous occasions), The Duke of Edinburgh (he is an ambassador for the Dukes Fellowship Charity), Prince Charles (he is an ambassador of the Prince’s Trust), the late Pope John Paul II (who requested a private audience with Russell at the Vatican),former US presidents Bill Clinton and George W Bush, the Emperor of Japan, the King of Malaysia and in front a of a worldwide audience of one billion at the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in 2002.  In 2013 he performed at Buckingham Palace for the Queen’s Coronation Gala Festival and he has also performed at the opening ceremony of the World Games, the Rugby Union World Cup and at the Nou Camp Stadium for the 1999 Champion’s League Final with Montserrat Caballé.

He is the UK’s biggest selling classical artist in history and spent fifty-two consecutive weeks at No.1 in the UK and the US classical charts at the same time. Since 2001 he has sold more than seven million albums, achieved six top ten album placements and received four classical Brit Awards.
