Nemo Studios/Believe Digital is proud to announce the digital download-only release of world-renowned vocalist Sarah Brightman’s latest collections, RARITIES, Volumes 1-3 on December 18th, 2015. Available for a limited time, each set offers a rare and exciting opportunity to experience the magic of one of the world’s most celebrated vocalists. Culled from a rich assortment of sought-after recordings that were originally unreleased, B-Sides, limited edition releases or demo versions, these compilations contain hidden treasures from Sarah’s vast and stirring repertoire. Tracks are extracted from the master tapes of long sold out special tour edition CDs for the albums Fly (1995) and Harem (2003), the Voce album (a 2014 release available only in Japan), sessions with Gregorian, Schiller, Sash! and other sources.
Among the selections included in this project is a version of Sarah’s disco classic “I Lost My Heart To A Starship Trooper” (originally performed in 1978 with Hot Gossip), the jubilant “Done” and “Sarahbande” from the Japanese Voce collection, the unreleased demo version of “Sky & Sand” and a haunting rendition of “Voyage Voyage” performed with Gregorian. An audio commentary track by Sarah and producer Frank Peterson is included with each compilation. It’s a must-have set for fans and completists, who for years have been paying small fortunes to obtain these musical treasures. All three sets that comprise RARITIES have been digitally remastered and are currently available on iTunes, Amazon and through other major online retailers.
Grammy nominee and Echo award winning stage, screen and recording superstar Sarah Brightman is the world’s best selling soprano of all time. Over an almost four-decade career, Ms. Brightman has passionately pursued (and achieved) a slew of artistic goals, consistently reinventing herself in order to breach new creative ground: she’s sold over thirty million records worldwide, is the first artist to have been invited twice to perform the theme songs at the Olympic Games, and is frequently credited with pioneering the Classical Crossover genre. Ms. Brightman’s 1997 duet with Andrea Bocelli, “Time To Say Goodbye”, became the fastest and biggest selling single of all time in Germany. In 2013, she released the critically acclaimed set Dreamchaser (her 11th studio album and a Top 20 hit in the US).
Listeners with a passion for great music are sure to relish RARITIES, Volumes 1-3, which offer a unique opportunity to explore hard-to-find recordings by this multi-faceted artist.
