New Joseph album soars to 'Number 1'

Joe McElderry as Joseph

Theatre news

JOE McElderry has delighted fans with the announcement of his brand new recording of the soundtrack to the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

The new recording rocketed to the top of the Amazon Musical Soundtrack Charts ahead of its hotly anticipated release later this month, and was featured in the top 100 Hot New Releases. The Soundtrack can be pre-ordered now through Amazon prior to its release on February 20, 2017.

McElderry’s title-role debut in the 2016 production of Joseph was his first major theatrical appearance – and his performance was met with Five Star reviews and standing ovations up and down the country, leading to a flurry of social media requests for his version to be released on CD.

McElderry said: “Every Joseph has the chance to make the role his own and I’ve always tried to make the musical personal to me, whilst telling the story in Bill Kenwright’s wonderful production through Andrew’s music and Tim’s lyrics. I was thrilled to make this album and to become a part of Joseph’s history forever. I hope people love listening to it as much as I’ve loved making it.”

Joe McElderry is currently starring as Joseph on the 2017 UK tour of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. For the full tour dates visit www.kenwright.com/
