Susan Boyle to debut second full-length album in November

HollywoodNews.com: Susan Boyle will release her eagerly awaited second full-length album, entitled “The Gift” on Tuesday, November 9.

One of the most highly anticipated releases of 2010, Susan Boyle’s “The Gift” premieres ten new performances from the former “Britain’s Got Talent” contestant whose debut album, I Dreamed A Dream, sold more than 9 million copies worldwide since its release in November 2009. Like its predecessor, “The Gift” is produced by Steve Mac.

The first full-length collection since the release of her 9 times platinum record-breaking debut, “The Gift” offers a seasonal repertoire of inspirational and secular songs united in theme and the breathtaking vocal artistry of Susan Boyle.

Along with her selection of beloved holiday songs — “Do You Hear What I Hear?,” “The First Noel,” “O Holy Night,” “Away In A Manger,” “Make Me A Channel For Your Peace,” “Auld Lang Syne,” and “O Come All Ye Faithful,” Susan puts her stamp on some unforgettable pop classics including Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day,” Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah,” and Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over.”

Susan Boyle’s “The Gift” presents the debut of Amber Stassi, winner of the Susan’s Search online talent contest, singing a transcendent duet with Susan on “Do You Hear What I Hear?”

Susan explained, “When making this album, I really wanted the songs to touch hearts. Music has always been a companion to me, particularly on special occasions. I wanted there to be a mix of songs that would flow with all our moods this holiday season. As much as the season is a time for reflection, it is also a time for fun and enjoyment with those closest to us.”

Simon Cowell added, “Susan broke all the rules, became famous literally overnight and has become one of the world’s most popular singers. I’m incredibly proud and pleased for her. I think Susan has gone a step further with this new album. She is a very special lady.”

An unexpected pop icon with the voice of an angel, Susan Boyle rocketed to international fame when her performance of “I Dreamed A Dream” (from Les Miserables) on “Britain’s Got Talent” became the most watched YouTube video of 2009, with Susan generating more than 500 million YouTube hits.

Susan surprised the world with her powerful, heart stopping voice when she walked onto the Britain’s Got Talent stage in April 2009. By the November she had conquered the international music charts with her debut multi platinum album I Dreamed A Dream, selling over 10 million copies worldwide. Her debut album I Dreamed A Dream made Susan the biggest selling artist in the world in 2009, the fastest selling artist in the world for a decade and the fastest selling artist in the history of the UK charts. I Dreamed A Dream shot straight to the number one spot in over 21 countries including the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, Japan, New Zealand and South Africa.
