Rick Springfield's orchestral album now has a title and release date.
Due April 26th, Orchestrating My Life redefines the sound of radio favorites such as "Jessie's Girl," "Don’t Talk to Strangers," "Love Somebody" and "Human Touch." Available in single- and four-disc editions, the project also introduces a new song, "Irreplaceable," dedicated to Springfield’s late mother.
Along with full band and unplugged shows, Rick will perform with symphony orchestras on June 27th in Atlanta and July 11th in Costa Mesa, California.
On a recent appearance on KTLA in Los Angeles, Springfield described Orchestrating My Life:
"It's the greatest hits with an orchestra. I mean, it's a band, but it's also been really, really well orchestrated. I did a show in Germany with an orchestra and that arranger has done all the arrangements. It's really great, I mean, very excited about it. It sounds like the hits, only it's got an extra thing."
Rick says going orchestral adds a new life to his familiar songs:"It's a bigger sound... but the orchestrations are real exciting to hear. I mean, there's times where it's just the orchestra and then the band comes in. It gives a whole new life to all these songs."
