Fields of Gold

Posté le par admin

Hello everyone!

Katie is releasing a new single “Fields of Gold” in aid of “BBC Children in Need”. There’s the official video and cover.

There’s the accoustic version of it on BBC Radio2.

One of the late Sir Terry Wogan’s favourite songs, Fields of Gold was written by Sting who originally recorded it for his 1993 album Ten Summoner’s Tales.

Melua revealed the news live on BBC Radio 2 this morning (listen here). Talking about the release she said: “I am delighted to have accepted the invitation by BBC Children in Need to record and release this single to support the charity’s 2017 Appeal, in honour of the late Sir Terry Wogan. He was a long-standing supporter of mine, and to re-record one of his favourite songs for a charity that was so dear to his heart is a privilege. I hope it goes on to make a real and lasting difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.”

katie will perform this song on BBC One on the 17th november at 9.50pm.
