NEW YORK, (February 7, 2013) – With an incredible career spanning over seven decades, multi-Grammy award-winning songstress Petula Clark announces new album, Lost in You, set for release on April 2, 2013 on The End Records. The album features a mix of new songs, including single “Cut Copy Me,” as well as beautifully done cover songs with a unique twist. “Cut Copy Me” will be available for purchase on iTunes on February 25, 2013.
The album showcases Clark’s diversity as the title track ‘Lost In You’ reverberates around a simple, yet beautiful piano refrain, while ‘Next To You” has an unforgettable sound co-written with Simon Wilcox, who wrote ‘Northern Lights’ for “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn” soundtrack. The album also features some unique cover songs, including a whole re-imagining of her signature hit “Downtown,” a beautiful version of the Gnarls Barkley hit “Crazy,” and a touching rendition of her friend Elvis Presley’s “Love Me Tender.” Also, Clark’s new take on “Imagine,” plays as a tribute to John Lennon who cited her as one of his favorite singers.
