‘Sleep For England’ is the third release from the critically admired, ‘International Blue’ album. The Xmas version of 'Sleep For England' is a vocal re-work by Julian Lennon, which featured on the physical release of the album on CD earlier this year.
After putting music to spoken word with the help of Lou Reed, Yoko Ono etc., Stephen Emmer returns with a new album, produced at Avatar Studios in the Big Apple and the famous Abbey Road Studios in London, feauturing some well know helpers in a tribute to the lost art en elegance of pop crooning.
The most beautiful orchestrated, arranged and composed album of the year. Made as a tribute to and in a collaboration with some of the best crooners in history. Emmer easily competes with the biggest composers within the realm of pop crooning. The album is simply one of those timeless pieces of fine art.
‘Untouchable’ is a poignant ballad of loss and epic heartbreak, combined with a celebration of life and love. The lyrics were written and performed by Glenn Gregory of the pioneering 80’s synth pop band Heaven 17 as a tribute to the late Billy MacKenzie.
Half of Stephen Emmer's double A side single release is Midge Ure's contribution to International Blue, 'Taking Back My Time'.
With platinum-selling Gregory on vocal duty – for the double A-side’s lead track - alongside legendary producer Tony Visconti (whose credits include some of the biggest selling acts of all time from Iggy Pop to Morrissey to Bowie to T-Rex) something truly exceptional has been crafted.
