Legendary movie star, Christopher Lee is to release a new solo album in October on CD and DVD. Mr. Lee, with singing credits in numerous movies and operatic excerpts throughout his distinguished career, and fresh from his successful collaboration with metal band Rhapsody, has taken another adventurous leap with his new album “Revelation.”
Recorded and filmed in the UK, US and Spain, featuring a diverse range of music styles and musicians, “Revelation” is the ultimate collection of songs for movie and music fans alike. As the top grossing box office star, having starred in Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in recent years, “Revelation” opens a new chapter in a storied career spanning six decades.
The album includes a reworking of “Toreador March” from Bizet’s Carmen, with Mr. Lee ranging to a high Baritone and features The English Chamber Choir. The track, although modern in style, takes it’s inspiration from its true Andalucian roots. World renowned flamenco artist Juan Ramirez was responsible for giving the music its authenticity. The accompanying dances, choreographed by leading exponents of Flamenco, and featuring Mr. Lee, captures this passionate interpretation of the song.
Additional tracks combine Mr. Lee the actor and singer, playing the romantic knight errant, Don Quijote in his own interpretation of “The Impossible Dream”, which opens with the story’s characters narrating an introduction to the song itself.
The album’s finale, “My Way”, is a true mirror of Christopher Lee’s own life. Arguably, the most recognisable voice in entertainment, Mr. Lee’s storied career has been unconventional. He has never played it safe or has been scared of a challenge -- he has done it His Way.
