Louise Dearman Announces Details Of New Album IT'S TIME
Louise Dearman has collaborated with a renowned team once again to produce her third studio album. Appropriately titled 'It's Time', the album is a collection of Dearman's favourite musical numbers and includes a duet with X Factor star turned West End name Shayne Ward.
Featuring classic songs from The Wiz, Les Miserables, Sunset Boulevard, Funny Girl, Once, The Wizard of Oz, Chorus Line, Little Women, Jekyll and Hyde and Tell Me On a Sunday, the album perfectly brings together traditional and modern pieces from some of the world's most successful musical theatre productions.
The track 'Falling Slowly' (taken from the musical Once) features Ward in his return to the world of musical theatre following his starring role as Stacee Jaxx in the West End's Rock of Ages.
Louise says of the album: "For years I shied away from singing or recording iconic musical theatre songs and tried to find less known material, but this year felt like the right time to embrace all those truly wonderful classics and put them together with some beautiful orchestrations on my new album. It's really taken me back to my roots and I'm very, very proud of the end product."
'It's Time' is set for release on November 18th.
Currently starring as Elphaba in the London production of Wicked (in fact Dearman is the only performer across the globe to have played both lead roles in the show), Louise is excited to move on to new adventures after she defies gravity for the last time on November 16th.
As well as the album and a book release in the pipeline, Louise has a busy festive period ahead, performing across the country in a number of concerts. The highlight of these will be her turn as guest host for BBC Radio Two's Friday Night is Music Night (FNIMN) on the 20th December.
