Joe Dolan - with the RTE Orchestra - Orchestrated Vol.1 CD
Universal Music Ireland are delighted to announce the release of ‘Orchestrated, Vol.1’ – a collection of Joe Dolan’s biggest hits re-recorded with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra. The album, set for release on October 21st, features Joe’s original vocal accompanied by the 45 piece orchestra.
This album is a side of Joe Dolan you never knew, his voice given a bigger canvas with more colours. Classics like ‘You’re Such a Good Looking Woman’ now sound like a James Bond theme. The Burt Bacharach-penned ‘The Answer to Everything’ and 90’s hit ‘Ciara’ sound new and reinvigorated, with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra creating an exhilarating accompaniment, bringing Joe’s unmistakable vocals and the well-known tracks to new heights.
One of Joe’s more recent hits, The Universal, released in the late 90’s, has finally been given the orchestral treatment it deserved. The song has undoubtedly become Joe’s own, with its creators, the UK band Blur, acknowledging this when playing to a festival crowd of over 50,000 in Ireland in 2009 dedicating it ‘to the late, great Joe Dolan’.
The album includes a duet with Ireland’s biggest country music star Nathan Carter. Nathan jumped at the chance to record ‘Make Me An Island’. His vocals are shared with Joe’s to create a moving, spiritual rendition of the much-loved classic. The album also features a previously unreleased recording of the old Irish song ‘Foggy Dew’ – a track Joe was working on with his nephew Adrian Dolan before his untimely death.
