In celebration of his 70th birthday this March, Andrew Lloyd Webber Unmasked: The Platinum Collection will be available March 16th.
The collection is personally curated and overseen by Andrew to include classics from his earliest work starting with Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat through his most recent School of Rock.
“I owe everyone involved in putting this compilation together a huge thank you. A vast amount of thought has evidently gone into selecting tracks from my almost fifty year old career. This compilation brings back a heap of memories – it has made this ancient composer very happy. I particularly love the new tracks and of course I love the orchestral suites. There’s nothing a composer likes more than hearing their melodies played by a cracking orchestra.”
Newly recorded songs from superstar artists Lana Del Rey (“You Must Love Me”, Evita), Nicole Scherzinger (“Memory”, Cats) and Gregory Porter (“Light at the End of the Tunnel”, Starlight Express) add to the collection of his cherished works from the past five decades.
Of Lloyd Webber, Lana Del Rey says:
“Andrew Lloyd Webber has been one of my primary inspirations in music, so to do a cover of one of his songs is a dream.”
Gregory Porter also expresses his admiration:
“Andrew is an icon of not only musical theatre, but he’s an icon of music, our culture, and of our human experience.”
Nicole Scherzinger says:
“Andrew’s music absolutely influenced me as an artist… It’s hard for me to fathom that I’m a part of one of Andrew’s career defining albums. That is in itself career defining for me. It’s a dream, and a lifelong accomplishment.”
