On November 9 2018, Aled Jones and Russell Watson, two of the world’s greatest classical voices, come together to release their debut album ‘In Harmony’, via BMG.
The first single, ‘Where Have All The Flowers Gone/Here’s To The Heroes’, is a timely tribute celebrating the centenary of the end of the First World War and the 70th anniversary of the NHS – to the men and woman who inspired a generation.
The pair will take to the stage together for their first joint UK and Ireland tour throughout September and October next year.
Listen to ‘Where Have All The Flowers Gone/Here’s To The Heroes‘ by Aled Jones and Russell Watson on Shoot Music’s New Releases playlist on Spotify.
Having moved in the same circles for nearly 20 years and since becoming firm friends, Aled approached Russell to collaborate for his next big project.
The album features a wealth of well-loved hymns, arias, and popular songs – ranging from stunning arrangements of ‘Ave Maria‘ – to more modern classics such as ‘You Raise Me Up’.
Ian Tilley, who has worked with some of the biggest names in classical-crossover including Hayley Westenra, who has sold millions worldwide, platinum selling All Angels, The Choirboys and Libera, produced the record.
Internationally renowned composer Sir Karl Jenkins wrote one of the tracks ‘Bright Horizons’ especially for Aled and Russell.
