The Tenors – Canada’s multi-platinum, JUNO Award-winning vocal group – are set to release their fourth studio album UNDER ONE SKY on May 4 with Universal Music Canada (UMC), the country’s leading music company. The quartet, with multiple #1 Billboard Classical Crossover albums under its belt, “have talent to burn” and “killer singing voices” raves The Toronto Star and “pitch perfect harmonies” says Examiner.com. The music of Clifton Murray, Victor Micallef, Remigio Pereira and Fraser Walters is rich and soulful, spanning powerful anthems, classic covers and original songs penned/co-penned by The Tenors themselves.
UNDER ONE SKY is a 13-track album that combines a mix of originals with new interpretations of familiar favourites. Highlighting their signature blend of classical and contemporary pop, the record includes the popular hits “Lean On Me” (Bill Withers) and “Who Wants To Live Forever” (Queen) as well as the soaring original title track “Under One Sky” and the inspirational “New Day’s Begun”. The foursome dedicates the classic Joe Cocker track “You Are So Beautiful” to their mothers and all mothers around the world, while “My Father’s Son” pays universal homage to dads. A deluxe special edition will also be released offering fans three bonus tracks.
“This music is our most exciting and most diverse we’ve recorded to date,” said The Tenors. “We are so thrilled to be sharing this with the world!”
Collaborating with The Tenors on UNDER ONE SKY are Grammy-Award winning producer David Foster (Michael Bublé, Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli), renowned producer Bob Ezrin (Kiss, Pink Floyd, Johnny Reid, Alice Cooper) and Grammy Award-winning producer Keith Thomas (Gladys Knight, Blake Shelton).
In support of the new album, The Tenors’ next PBS TV special is set to air this June, also entitled Under One Sky (check local listings), followed by an extensive Canadian and U.S. fall/winter tour (dates to be announced).
In addition, the group pays extra tribute to their moms in the forthcoming hardcover book A Letter To My Mom by Lisa Erspamer. Honouring their respective mothers, the book, to be released on April 7, also includes letters from Melissa Rivers, Shania Twain, will.i.am, Christy Turlington, and Kristin Chenoweth among others.
