With an impressive career behind him, Michael will be talking to us about his brand new album, 'Both Sides Now'.
He will also perform two tracks from his album, 'The Closest Thing to Crazy' and his new single 'The Perfect Song' which was written by the one and only, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Leslie Bricusse! Here's the story of 'The Perfect Song'…
Michael “I was chatting to Andrew Lloyd Webber at a party and told him I was recording a new album and he said to me: ‘Actually Michael I’ve just written a new song with Leslie Bricusse and I think you should have it! I was in Los Angeles last week for Leslie’s 82nd birthday and Michael Caine, who was there as well, asked Leslie and me if we’d ever written a song together. We realised we hadn’t and thought it was a great idea!’
“Andrew then told me that Leslie came up with the title ‘The Perfect Song’, and Andrew wrote the music in the back of a cab on the way home! He then sent over the music to Leslie and Leslie wrote the lyrics. It’s an absolutely beautiful song written by two of the finest songwriters in the world and I’m extremely proud to be premiering it on my new album.”
