Entertainer Bradley Walsh will release new album When You’re Smiling on 10th November 2017.
The album is the follow-up to his hugely successful debut album Chasing Dreams. When You’re Smiling sees Walsh putting his own spin on his favourite tracks from the likes of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole and Louis Armstrong as well as a selection of musical theatre favourites.
Walsh has co-written a new track with composer and producer Steve Sidwell titled You Know Best and his son Barney plays piano on One For My Baby.
Earlier this year, Bradley launched the PickASongForBradley.com campaign where he called upon fans to visit the website and suggest songs for him to cover on When You’re Smiling. The winning track was The Very Thought Of You.
Walsh said: “I am very flattered that so many people loved Chasing Dreams. The amazing response that we received was a big surprise to us all and now we have to follow up that success with the second album. We have had a great time revisiting some of our favourite songs from stage and screen and I am very proud of what we’ve achieved. I can only hope that people enjoy listening to it as much as we did making it.”
Chasing Dreams, which was released last November, went on to be the best-selling debut album by a debut artist in 2016 and was certified Gold.
