Two of his shows are currently running in both Broadway and the West End: School Of Rock and The Phantom of the Opera, and his musicals have grossed more than $13.6 billion and have been watched by 302 million people across 44 countries. He has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide.

The collection is personally curated and overseen by Lloyd Webber to include classics from his earliest work starting with Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat through his most recent School of Rock.

Of the new album, Lloyd Webber says:

“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) and add to the collection of his cherished works from the past five decades.

Of Lloyd WebberLana 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.”

The Cats classic “Memory” by Nicole Scherzinger is available now as an instant grat track. Of being on the album, 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.”

The set also contains recordings by world-class performers such as Barbra Streisand, Madonna, Michael CrawfordSarah BrightmanMichael Ball, and released for the first time, Beyoncé singing “Learn To Be Lonely” from the 2005 Academy Awards with Lloyd Webber accompanying on piano.

UNMASKED: THE PLATINUM COLLECTION is available as 2 CD and 4 CD editions. The 4-disc version contains an exclusive 40-page book with a personally penned introduction from Lloyd Webber and in-depth notes on each track, written by respected theatre critic and Lloyd Webber biographer Michael Coveney, together with tributes from Barbra Streisand and Glenn Close among others.

The fourth disc encompasses a mix of overtures and showstoppers from Lloyd Webber‘s key works, as well as newly created orchestral suites. The five new orchestral suites have been specially prepared from existing recordings, emphasizing the grand orchestral aspects of his work. All CDs were mastered at Abbey Road Studios.

Lloyd Webber‘s productions have sold more than 330 million tickets worldwide. The Phantom of the Opera is the longest-running show on Broadway and second longest-running show in West End historyCats and The Phantom of the Opera are two of Broadway’s four highest grossing shows. The Phantom of the Opera original cast album is the No. 1 Broadway album of all time in the U.S. and the #175 biggest seller among ALL albums of the SoundScan era in the U.S.  In addition to his worldwide sales and audiences, Lloyd Webber has been recognised by critics and peers with numerous accolades and awards including seven Oliviers, seven Tonys, three Grammys, one Golden Globe and an Oscar.

Also in celebration of his 70th birthday, Lloyd Webber‘s new autobiography UNMASKED, will be released by HarperCollins on March 6th in the U.S. and on March 8th in the U.K.  Written entirely in his own words, Lloyd Webberrecounts his fascinating life and remarkable career.

Madonna, Beyoncé and Lana Del Rey are all going to be on this superstar album

There’s only one person in the world who can bring together some of music’s biggest divas, and that’s Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber.

The musical legend will celebrate his 70th birthday later this year with an album of newly-recorded songs and all-time classics from his most famous productions.

Beyoncé’s rendition of Learn to be Lonely from Phantom of the Opera will feature, along with contributions from Madonna, Barbra Streisand and Lana Del Rey.

“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 50-year-old career,” said Lloyd Webber.

“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.”

Nicole Scherzinger, Michael Ball and Gregory Porter will also feature on the superstar track list.

Speaking about her recording, Lana Del Rey said: “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.”

Lloyd Webber’s musicals have grossed a mammoth $13.6 billion and have been watched by over 302 million people across 44 countries.

Andrew Lloyd Webber Unmasked: The Platinum Collection will be released on 16 March.

10 albums turning 20 in 2018, from ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’ to Outkast’s ‘Aquemini’ and ‘Ray of Light’ by Madonna

Madonna – Ray of Light

madonna-ray-of-light.jpg

Madonna’s seventh studio album was released after the birth of her first child. Some feared this would, somehow, impact the music in a negative way. Of course not. Ray of Light became the best-selling studio album of Madonna’s career, proving once again her mastery over instinctive, brilliant pop music. 

Newfound maternal instincts along with her delving into Kaballah and yoga gave the album a wholesome, earthy feel; even the tracks about love and sex were less about the drama of her celebrity relationships and more about lessons learned.

Madonna confirms working with Starrah

Madonna is currently working on new music in London, she posted a snap earlier of her with songwriter Starrah. Starrah co-wrote Katy Perry’s ‘Swish Swish’ and Nicki Minaj’s ‘No Frauds’ among others. Fans have also been speculating that Madonna might be collaborating with Mirwais again (Music & American Life) as they started following each other on Instagram back in November. Recently Monte Pittman (Madonna’s long-time guitarist) followed Mirwais on Instagram too.

Madonna teases more music as she heads back into the studio

It’s about time, eh? Well, we were only getting a slight case of itchy feet, but our dreams seem to have been answered as Madonna finally teased new music this week.

The undisputed queen of pop took to her Instagram this week and announced she was back in the studio. The 59-year-old Material Girl was clutching an old timey microphone and wearing boxing wraps, naturally, as she raised her perfect head up to the mic like it was some sort of life-giving, invigorating apparatus.

She said: ‘Feels so good… ‘To be working on new music again!’ And in photos obtained by Daily Mail, the superstar was seen leaving a London recording studio on Wednesday looking well chuffed with herself. 2018 marks 35 years since her self-titled album was released and just like a virgin we were touched for the very first time.

Madonna’s been dropping the odd hint here and there she’s poised herself for an epic comeback. During an appearance on Kelly and Ryan last year, she said: ‘2017 was soccer mom in Portugal, 2018 I’m coming back baby and I’m coming for you!’ That was in reference to the fact she’s been living in a Lisbon palace after her son David Banda – who she adopted from Malawi in 2006 – joined the Benfica youth football academy earlier this year.

Madonna confirms she is working on new music – is a new album imminent?

Madonna has revealed that she is back in the studio – and could be gearing up to release her first new music in three years.

The superstar confirmed the news on Instagram by posting a suitably dramatic shot of herself singing into a mic with the message: “Feels so good to be working on music again!”.

Madonna’s last album, Rebel Heart, was released in March 2015, so there’s a good chance this could be for her fourteenth studio album. 

Little is known so far about Madonna’s next musical move. Rebel Heart saw her assemble an array of hit producers, including Diplo, Ariel Rechtshaid and Avicii. The collection peaked at Number 2 on the Official Albums Chart, pipped to the post by Sam Smith‘s debut In The Lonely Hour. 

Madonna has scored a seriously impressive 13 Number 1 singles and 12 Number 1 albums in the UK – look back at her complete chart history here.

Last year, OfficialCharts.com revealed her Official Top 40 biggest selling singles in celebration of 34 years since her debut single Holiday. Check out the full list here.

Kunsthal Rotterdam presenteert met trots deze zomer Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists 25 Years – Dutch press release

Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists 25 Years

27 mei t/m 30 september 2018

De Kunsthal Rotterdam kondigt met trots voor zomer 2018 een nieuwe modetentoonstelling aan: ‘Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists 25 Years’. Ter gelegenheid van het vijfentwintigjarig jubileum van het Amsterdamse luxueuze modehuis Viktor&Rolf organiseert de Kunsthal in samenwerking met de ontwerpers en de Canadese curator Thierry-Maxime Loriot een grote overzichtstentoonstelling. De tentoonstelling ‘Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists 25 Years’ onderzoekt de elementen die de ontwerpers uniek maken in de hedendaagse modewereld en toont hun radicale opvatting van ‘wearable art’.

“Met magnifiek vakmanschap en dromerige silhouetten, soms gemaakt van rinkelende belletjes of rood tapijt, heeft het Nederlandse modekunstenaarsduo Viktor&Rolf gedurende de afgelopen twintig jaar draagbare kunst gemaakt in een unieke, eigenzinnige stijl”, aldus Thierry-Maxime Loriot, curator van de tentoonstelling.

Vanaf zondag 27 mei zijn de spectaculaire en avantgardistische creaties van het meest artistieke duo uit de internationale modewereld in de Kunsthal te bewonderen. Sinds het begin van hun artistieke samenwerking in december 1992 hebben Viktor Horsting (1969) en Rolf Snoeren (1969) lovende kritieken gekregen voor hun cerebrale en geestige benadering van haute couture.

De tentoonstelling presenteert een aantal van de meest sublieme en innovatieve werken van het ontwerpduo, waaronder circa 45 werken uit hun haute couture collecties, toneelkostuums voor ballet en opera evenals eerdere ontwerpen uit Viktor&Rolf’s archieven en uit collecties van (inter)nationale musea. Ook is een selectie van hun work-in-progress serie ‘Dolls’ − replica’s van antieke poppen gekleed in de meest iconische ontwerpen van de modekunstenaars − te zien. Daarnaast zijn er speciale stukken, zoals de kostuums die zij in 2016 voor Madonna hebben gemaakt voor haar inzamelingsconcert in Miami Art Basel, en nieuwe werken uit de nieuwste collecties, ‘Boulevard of Broken Dreams’ en ‘Action Dolls’, die nooit eerder zijn vertoond .

Over de komende tentoonstelling laten Viktor Horsting en Rolf Snoeren gezamenlijk weten: “Na het succes van onze overzichtstentoonstelling in Melbourne zijn we er trots op dat hij nu naar de Kunsthal Rotterdam gaat. We houden ervan ons werk niet alleen op de catwalk, maar ook als tentoonstelling te laten zien. Op die manier kan iedereen het bekijken, niet alleen een handjevol mensen tijdens de shows in Parijs.”

“De Kunsthal is precies even oud als Viktor&Rolf. Beider vijfentwintigjarig jubileum is dan ook aanleiding voor deze unieke samenwerking die naadloos past binnen onze programmering”, zegt Emily Ansenk, directeur Kunsthal. “Met grote bewondering voor hun experimentele ontwerpen, die de grenzen tussen kunst en mode voortdurend aftasten, biedt dit overzicht van de eerste 25 jaar Viktor&Rolf een bijzondere mogelijkheid om de onconventionele creativiteit van dit innovatieve modeduo te ervaren.”

‘Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists 25 Years’ is gebaseerd op de tentoonstelling van de National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, ontwikkeld in samenwerking met Viktor&Rolf en gastcurator Thierry-Maxime Loriot. Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is speciale bruikleenpartner van de tentoonstelling, met dank aan de Han Nefkens Foundation.
