Info for Between the Earth and the Stars
Marking no less than the complete reinvention of a wonderful and much-loved talent this - her 17th studio album - is a collection of brand new recordings. As befits an artist of Bonnie’s undoubted stature, ‘Between The Earth And The Stars’ also features collaborations and contributions from some of her fellow musical legends including Francis Rossi on ‘Someone’s Rockin’ Your Heart’. The album also includes ‘Older’, ‘Bad For Loving You’ and ‘To The Moon and Back’, three tracks written specifically for Bonnie by Amy Wadge, who wrote mega-hit ‘Thinking Out Loud’ with Ed Sheeran and has worked with Camila Cabello and many more. The album sees her reunited with David Mackay, who produced Bonnie’s first two albums.
Bonnie said of the album, “I started singing in April 1969 and worked 6 nights a week for 7 years before being discovered by a talent scout named Roger Bell. He came to Wales from London to listen to a male singer he had been told about, but as there were two floors in the night club and he walked in and heard me singing instead! That was the beginning of my wonderful journey. I’ve performed all over the world, and still love hitting the stage and entertaining my fantastic fans. The time was right however to get back into the studio but I knew that, to mark 50 years of performing, I had to deliver something really special. I’ve done just that! The new material is sounding amazing.”
‘Between The Earth And The Stars’ is more than just a return to form for the singer known everywhere for her genre-defining hits. Her calling cards are the global number one smash ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’, but also of course ‘Holding Out For A Hero’. She received a Guinness World Record for ‘Faster Than The Speed of Night’ album which saw her become the first British female to debut at number one on the UK Albums Chart; the album went platinum in the US. Over and above these tracks that made her a household name, she has proved her versatility by enjoying a bilingual number one album in France, releasing Country tracks and performing duets – notably with artists as diverse as Todd Rundgren and Shakin’ Stevens. This new album keeps a link to her past with ‘Hold On’ penned by Kevin Dunne, the bassist in her 70s band, who was a big part of Bonnie reconnecting with David Mackay and creating ‘Between The Earth And The Stars’.
After being discovered in Wales, Bonnie Tyler’s recording career began in 1976 with her first single, and her debut album landed the following year. With an instantly recognisable and potent voice combining grit, power and range, Tyler’s star gradually rose thanks to a series of great songs that slowly exposed her an ever-increasing audience both in the UK and in Europe. However, it was when she linked up with Jim Steinman for ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ and indeed ‘Holding Out For A Hero’ [recorded for the soundtrack of smash movie Footloose], that Bonnie Tyler’s career really took off. She’s never looked back.
‘Between The Earth And The Stars’ is a triumph. Reasserting herself with this bold statement of intent, Bonnie Tyler proves that her voice is just as potent as ever. With Barry Gibb, Cliff Richard and Francis Rossi providing yet more star power, this album is just what Bonnie’s fans have been holding out for…
Bonnie Tyler, vocals
Born in Skewen, Neath, South Wales, Bonnie grew up listening to, and being influenced by, the legendary female artists of the day, especially Janis Joplin and Tina Turner.
Her first taste of success came with a local talent competition, in which she came second. The prize money was just £1 but it gave her the confidence to start singing seriously. As she said, “The excitement made me want to do it again. I really loved singing and that competition started it for me.”
Following the contest, Bonnie continued to play the pubs and clubs of South Wales, first with Bobby Wayne & The Dixies, and later with Soul group Imagination. Before long, she was spotted by talent scout Roger Bell, who saw her singing in Swansea under the stage name Sherene Davis.
Bonnie said, “I started singing in April 1969 and worked 6 nights a week for 7 years before being discovered by Roger Bell. He came to Wales from London to listen to a male singer he had been told about, but there were two floors in the night club and as he walked in he heard me singing instead! That was the beginning of my wonderful journey.”
A record deal with RCA followed and she released her debut single ‘My! My! Honeycomb’ in 1975. That same year she was forced to undergo surgery to remove nodules on her vocal chords, an operation that enhanced her already husky voice. Bonnie Tyler - It's a Heartache
Bonnie then teamed up with writer and producer Ronnie Scott and recorded her breakthrough hit. ‘Lost In France’ was her second ever single and it climbed to No.9 in the UK charts in 1976. The track was then released in Europe and became a huge hit, staying in the Top Ten in Germany for over six months.
The following year, ‘It’s A Heartache’, Bonnie’s next single was her first hit in the USA, reaching No. 3 in the Billboard chart, and was a massive hit all over the world. Bonnie’s star was truly in the ascendancy, and the hits would keep coming!
The 80s saw even greater success. A burgeoning collaboration with epic rock pioneer Jim Steinman garnered both Grammy Nominations and phenomenal international recognition with the album ‘Faster Than The Speed Of Night’, and multi-platinum selling power ballad ‘Total Eclipse Of The Heart’. Continuing their working relationship, ‘Holding Out For A Hero’ from the soundtrack to the film ‘Footloose’, proved similarly popular and has also featured in several other movies since including the ‘Shrek’ series. Those songs are unforgettable classics familiar to anyone who has ever turned on a radio! Bonnie performed ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ at the opening of the Welsh Parliament in 1999.
In the 90s Tyler worked with “the German Simon Cowell” writer/producer Dieter Bohlen giving rise to albums including the monster German hit ‘Bitterblue’. She continues to perform every year for her legions of German fans in what is a very special country to her.
Over and above those timeless tracks that made her a household name, she has proved her versatility by enjoying a bilingual number one album in France, and performing duets – notably with artists as diverse as Todd Rundgren and Shakin’ Stevens. In 2013, she released an album of Country tracks entitled ‘Rocks and Honey’ and, in the same year, she was selected as the UK’s entry in the Eurovision Song Content.
Bonnie was impacting the European market to such a degree that in 2003 she recorded a dual-language cover of ‘Total Eclipse’, with French artist Kareen Antonn titled ‘Si Demain (Turn Around)’ which topped the charts in Belgium, Poland and France, the latter for ten weeks.
Both ‘It’s a Heartache’ and ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ are among the best-selling singles of all time, with sales in excess of six million. Bonnie’s work has earned her two Grammy Award nominations and three Brit Award nominations, among other accolades. Bonnie continues to perform all over the world,
2019 heralds not only that 50th anniversary, the new album: ‘Between The Earth and The Stars’ and some phenomenal live shows, but also a series of further announcements that will delight her fans globally!
Perhaps the final word should go to Bonnie herself, “I’ve performed all over the world, and still love hitting the stage and entertaining my fantastic fans. The time was right however to get back into the studio but I knew that, to mark 50 years of performing, I had to deliver something really special. I’ve done just that! The new material on ‘Between The Earth and The Stars’ is sounding amazing.”
