When it comes to Christmas or working with female singers, Rick Wakeman‘s long ticked both of these checkboxes, having released an entire disc of Yuletide pieces and recorded with the likes of Chaka Khan and Maggie Bell. Still, there’s a first for the veteran: a joint single with a 15-year-old soprano Emmie Beckitt. Titled “Welcome A Star” – a pun obviously intended – it’s a new version of a part from the legendary keyboardist’s “The New Gospels” from 1986, to be released on December 4th and available for pre-order now. There’s not only piano and vocal on it, though, as the leading artists are accompanied by the English Chamber Choir and the Orion Orchestra. Must be spellbinding.
