80s Symphonic on Spotify, Amazon, etc.
Released today, Warner Bros UK released an album of 80s songs with a symphony orchestra. BUT these are not just an orchestra playing a pop song. They've taken the original vocal stems, and elements of the original song, and added symphony parts. Some are better takes than others. "I Want To Know What Love Is" by Foreigner is a standout for me. Also "What's Love Got To Do With It" by Tina Turner is another.
"80s SYMPHONIC combines the original classic tracks of 15 iconic 80s tracks from David Bowie, a-ha, Foreigner, Simple Minds, Simply Red, Tina Turner, Pretenders, Ultravox and more with brand new symphonic and string arrangements performed by the 50 piece London Studio Orchestra creating brand unique versions of these timeless tracks like you’ve never heard before.
The songs on 80s Symphonic have collectively sold over 20 million copies and have been number one hits in over 20 countries.
The brand new orchestrations for the album are the work of producer and arranger Andy Wright, who has worked with Simple Minds, Eurythmics, Simply Red, Jeff Beck, Massive Attack to name but a few."
