Your chance to win unique 80s col­lec­tion

Stockport Times West - - SOUNDS WRITE - WITH AN­THONY LO­MAN

BBC Ra­dio 2’s Sounds Of The 80s CD is a unique col­lec­tion of cov­ers of clas­sic hits by some of to­day’s most popular acts, cel­e­brat­ing mu­sic’s big­gest, di­verse and flam­boy­ant decade.

The al­bum fea­tures artists who were suc­cess­ful per­form­ers dur­ing those glory years such as Kylie Minogue, Chrissie Hynde, Dolly Par­ton and Level 42, and newer artists who were very much in­spired by the time such as Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Christina Perri, Caro Emer­ald, Olly Murs, Birdy, The Pierces, Sophie El­lis-Bex­tor and The Script to name just a few.

Sounds Of The 80s is a com­pan­ion al­bum to Sara Cox’s Ra­dio 2 show of the same name which is broad­cast ev­ery Satur­day night from 10pm to mid­night. The ex­clu­sive and pre­vi­ously un­re­leased tracks have been care­fully cho­sen by each artist and truly made their own with al­bum high­lights in­clud­ing Sam Smith singing Whit­ney’s How Will I Know, Ed Sheeran’s take on Bruce Spring­steen’s At­lantic City, London Gram­mar’s cover of Chris Isaac’s Wicked Game, Kylie’s ver­sion of Kim Carnes’ Bette Davis Eyes, The Pierces take on Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush’s Don’t Give Up, The Script’s in­ter­pre­ta­tion of The Cars’ Drive and Sophie El­lis-Bex­tor’s ver­sion of New Or­der clas­sic True Faith.

Pre­sen­ter Sara Cox said of the al­bum re­lease: “On Satur­day nights we bring you a big 80s disco – all the best mu­sic from the best decade and with this al­bum we do that but with a big ex­cit­ing twist – all your favourite artists putting their own spin on 80s clas­sics. I mean, Sam Smith cov­er­ing Whit­ney, it was meant to be.”
