Kerry Ellis and Brian May's brand new single 'One Voice' will be released next Monday (13th April).
The track is being rush released after the song's music video received thousands of hits within a few hours of being uploaded on YouTube. It will be avaliable from all digital partners.
May said: "This is probably the fastest turnaround I’ve ever achieved - in terms of getting from a finished mix to a new song being ‘out there’ - but we’re rarin’ to go, and decided to dispense with the formalities and throw our new track out there without a backward look.
"This track is Art for Art’s sake. To me, it’s something I’m already proud of, with a magnificent vocal performance by Kerry Ellis, but also it has a crystal clear human message – ‘You have a voice … your voice CAN make a difference’."
‘One Voice’ is a song written by Ruth Moody, co-founder of the Canadian music group, The Wailin’ Jennys. Moody has personally given her approval for this new arrangement by May, and she is acknowledged in the credits thus: “We thank Ruth Moody most sincerely for giving us her blessing to re-present her beautiful song.”
Ellis and May have previously released two albums together and toured the UK extensively. Known as the first lady of the West End, last year Ellis reprised her performance as Elphaba in the West End production of Wicked and is currently starring as Grizabella in Cats at the London Palladium. May has recently been busy touring with Queen.
