After making history on both stage and screen, pioneering the classical crossover genre, selling over 30 million albums worldwide, and becoming the only artist to perform the theme song at two Olympics, it's hard to imagine Sarah Brightman has a dream left to realize. Yet with her new album 'Dreamchaser,' Sarah is embarking on what she calls "the greatest adventure I can imagine." Inspired by the wonderment and beauty of space, Dreamchaser the album, is inspired by Brightman's life-long dream to travel into space. As announced last year in Moscow, Brightman is anticipated to be the first musician to travel to the International Space Station, turning her dream into reality. Dreamchaser is a collaboration with veteran producer Mike Hedges, known for his iconic work with the likes of U2, The Cure, Dido. The first single One Day Like This is an unique depiction of British band Elbow's legendary song. The album also features "Closer"; a breathtaking new arrangement of Tubular Bells. Furthering the mystique of the album, Brightman delivers many other incredible songs including an astounding rendition of Sigur Ros' Glosoli., featuring new English lyrics by Chris Difford (Squeeze). PBS will offer television viewers the opportunity to join Sarah at the start of this cosmic journey, with Sarah Brightman: Dreamchaser In Concert which will be specially filmed this coming June at Elstree Studios just outside of London. This unique, newly created television special, will be based around the futuristic, otherworldly vision behind the Dreamchaser album and World Tour, with its vast, curved screen and featuring many 3D embellishments. Her rehearsal studio will be transformed: purposefully lit and dressed into a bespoke environment for the television show recording in front of a live audience. With a breathtaking set featuring both new songs and classic favorites, the incredible lighting, elaborate costumes and powerful video imagery will fuse together to create a truly spectacular and highly original programme. A magical and provocative viewing experience awaits!
