Rise Up

$18.00

Cliff Richard released his debut single Move It in August 1958 and was credited with being the first British Rock ‘n’ Roll hit single, taking the traditionally American genre back from across the pond. Sir Cliff Richard will now release Rise Up, his first album of new material in 14 years, on November 23. Drawing on new songwriting talent as well as some of his biggest hit writers, Cliff not only chose songs with immediate impact, but also those that reflected his own personal sentiments.

Sir Cliff Richard explained: “I chose Rise Up as the title track because after the bad period I went through in my life, I've managed to ‘rise up’ out of what seemed like a quagmire. I believe that we have the right title for the album and I am so thrilled in the way that it has turned out. I loved singing every track.”

Containing a massive 16 tracks, the album continues Cliff’s 60th musical anniversary celebrations. Cliff reunites with Olivia Newton-John for the first time in 23 years on Everybody’s Someone (previous duets with Cliff Richard include 1980’s Suddenly and 1995’s Had To Be); the album also features four tracks using Sir Cliff Richard’s original vocals and newly recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra: Devil Woman, The Minute You’re Gone, Miss You Nights and Some People.
