I have been writing and developing the musical SHADOW ON THE SUN for a few years with composer Omri Lahav and co-librettist/lyricist Jimmy Granstrom. A website for the show is currently under construction and we will be showcasing some songs from the show at concerts in London in a couple of months. But, here's a teaser of one of the songs, FOREVER (the complete song, fully orchestrated, will feature on my upcoming album WORDS SHARED WITH FRIENDS, to be released on iTunes on April 14).

Vocals are by the wonderful SHAUN McCOURT (those of you who may have been lucky enough to see one of his performances on tour as Joseph will know how fantastic he is) and the amazing JODIE STEELE (you may have seen her performing the title song from FAME on The One Show a week or so ago - she will be playing Carmen in the upcoming UK tour - or in 2013 as Mimi in RENT at the Tabard Theatre or Ivy in BARE at the Greenwich Theatre).

SHADOW ON THE SUN is a "sci-fi musical within a musical". It tells the story of a junkie drop-out best selling science fiction novelist and the story of the sci-fi novel he is trying to write. The novel is set in a world with a "shadow on the sun", where people live in total darkness and suicide is commonplace in the teenage population. The song "Forever" is sung by two teenage lovers before they try to snatch the eternal out of the desperately fleeting when they make love while contemplating taking their own lives..............
