(November 14, 2012 – New York, NY) – Multi-platinum-selling vocal group The Tenors (formerly known as The Canadian Tenors), featuring Clifton Murray, Fraser Walters, Remigio Pereira and Victor Micallef, will release their highly anticipated second studio album, LEAD WITH YOUR HEART, on January 15, 2013, via a U.S. deal with multi-Grammy Award-winning producer David Foster, Chairman of Verve Music Group, it was announced today. “I’m thrilled to welcome The Tenors as members of the Verve family. These amazing performers have established themselves here and abroad, and are a true international success story,” said Foster. “I am extremely proud to be associated with such great Canadian talent.” The group has already garnered a brilliant response in their native Canada, where LEAD WITH YOUR HEART powered to Top 3 on the Top Current Album Chart (behind Taylor Swift and Rod Stewart), #1 Classics/Crossover and #1 on Amazon.com following its October 30th debut.
The Tenors will soon announce a 70-city North American tour – to include 45 U.S. cities – for Spring 2013. A PBS special on the group begins airing in December of this year.
LEAD WITH YOUR HEART is a 12-track journey that stretches the boundaries of classical crossover music by combining classic songs, modern tunes, and Spanish and French world music. From much-loved covers such as Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young” and Elton John’s “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word,” to the inspirational anthem “Amazing Grace,” and one of the most recognizable and heroic Tenor arias, “Nessun Dorma,” the diverse track list features an eclectic mix of pop favorites and classical staples, along with new compositions written and co-written by The Tenors.
“We are so proud of this album and of the response we are getting from audiences in Canada; we are excited to share this music with so many friends, new and old, on our upcoming tour in America,” said The Tenors.
Collaborating on this exciting new album with The Tenors are world-renowned producers and co-writers including Walter Afanasieff (Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli, Michael Jackson), Bob Ezrin (Rod Stewart, Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd) and Marco Marinangeli (Josh Groban, Il Divo, Placido Domingo).
LEAD WITH YOUR HEART is The Tenors’ first album in over two years, following the international release of their debut album and an extensive touring schedule. Over the past few years, The Tenors have performed worldwide, sharing the stage with legendary artists such as Andrea Bocelli, Celine Dion (on The Oprah Show), Sting and Paul McCartney. More recently, The Tenors were featured performers on two primetime international broadcasts: THE EMMY Awards live from Los Angeles and The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations from Windsor Castle in the UK, where The Tenors performed for Her Majesty.TRACK LISTING: LEAD WITH YOUR HEART
