‘You’re In My Heart’ lets fans hear Stewart’s biggest hits in a newly imagined way by pairing classic vocal tracks from his most popular songs with new arrangements performed by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The result is a timeless record that retains the power, soul and passion that helped make the legendary singer-songwriter one of the best-selling music artists of all time. He’s sold more than 250 million records worldwide during a stellar career that includes nine #1 albums and 26 Top 10 singles in the U.K.; plus 17 Top 10 albums and 16 Top 10 singles in the U.S.

‘You’re In My Heart’ also includes a new version of the hit song ‘It Takes Two’, featuring Robbie Williams, and a brand-new song, ‘Stop Loving Her Today’, by Stewart.

The album is available now as a single-CD and a double-CD that features the full orchestral arrangements. On February 7, just in time for Valentine’s Day 2020, the collection will be released as a 180-gram double-LP. A special pink-vinyl version will also be available.

Produced by the legendary Trevor Horn, ‘You’re In My Heart’ includes new orchestral versions of Stewart’s #1 U.K. hits: ‘Sailing’, ‘I Don’t Want To Talk About It’, and ‘The First Cut Is The Deepest’. The collection also features versions of ‘Maggie May’ and ‘Reason To Believe’ – songs that topped the charts in both the U.K. and the U.S. in 1971.

‘You’re In My Heart’ is packed with Stewart’s best-known songs, including versions of the Top 10 U.K. hits: ‘Tonight’s The Night (Gonna Be Alright)’ (a #1 smash in the U.S.), ‘The Killing of Georgie (Part 1 and II)’, ‘You’re In My Heart (The Final Acclaim)’, ‘I Was Only Joking’, ‘What Am I Gonna Do (I’m So In Love With You)’, ‘Every Beat Of My Heart’, ‘Downtown Train’, ‘Rhythm Of My Heart’, and a cover of Tom Waits’, ‘Tom Traubert’s Blues (Waltzing Matilda)’.

Alongside Stewart’s major hits are fan favourites such as, ‘Young Turks’, ‘Forever Young’, ‘If We Fall In Love Tonight’, a version of ‘Handbags And Gladrags’, from his multi-platinum acoustic album, ‘Unplugged…and Seated’, and ‘Stay With Me’, a Top 40 hit he recorded with the Faces in 1971.

The release of ‘You’re In My Heart’ coincides with the beginning of Stewart’s UK tour, which began on the past weekend and continues with performances through November and December. In March, he returns to Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for more shows.
