Today marks the release of Bonnie Tyler’s new radio single, “When The Lights Go Down” from her upcoming brand-new studio album, The Best Is Yet To Come, out on February 26th, 2021 via earMUSIC.
“And when the lights go down,
We’ll take the radio out on the back porch,
We’ll dance real slow, ’til all this world just disappears...”
“When The Lights Go Down” is a nostalgic love song, heavy with melancholy and hopeful love, simultaneously. This song is for everyone who has lost their heart to the 80s – grab your loved one and turn your living room into a dance floor until it feels like the summer of ’85 again.
Over the course of promoting her new album, Bonnie Tyler joined TikTok and landed a viral hit within a very short time with her first post. The First Lady of Pop/Rock with the sultry, smoky voice performs her classic “Total Eclipse Of The Heart” and invites users to sing with her using the app's duet function.
Although her greatest successes to date have been in the 80s, Tyler has quickly expanded her target group to a younger audience. Since starting on TikTok just a few days ago, she has been able to gain tens of thousands of followers and generated hundreds of thousands of views with just one video - and the numbers are growing exponentially: there are currently more than 270,000 video views, w/over 1,000 comments and over 500 unique duets, based on the video.
The Best Is Yet To Come presents Bonnie’s “up-to-date” sound that still evokes the passion, energy and the fun of those glory years. Working again with long-time producer David Mackay, this new album stands proudly amongst anything she has done in the past. Her last album, Between The Earth And The Stars, reflected her serious star power, boasting contributions from Rod Stewart, Barry Gibb of The Bee Gees, and Cliff Richard. It was her highest-charting album across Europe in over 30 years. Now on The Best Is Yet To Come she proves that she doesn’t need a plethora of special guests to create a stunning album.
The Best Is Yet To Come consists of twelve brand-new tracks, and as Bonnie explains: “I have been so anxious to sing for you all for the past 10 long and scary months. I realize some of you have suffered from the virus and loss of family and friends and my heart aches for you. Music can lighten our load and is always my personal retreat. I hope these new songs will lift your spirits. I am so happy and proud of this new album. It simply rocks and brings a smile to my face every time I put it on. The moment that we can get back on stage and see your smiling faces will be extra special. I promise the best IS yet to come.”
The title of the album The Best Is Yet To Come says that there is no stopping the effervescent Bonnie Tyler. She is back, better than ever, and with this energetic, empowering, and joyful collection, she’s ready to shake off the blues of 2020 and get the party started!
The Best Is Yet To Come will be available everywhere on CD and digital on February 26th 2021 via earMUSIC.
