The third single for the upcoming Cinderella follows the release late last year of “Only You, Lonely You” sung by Ivano Turco. “I Know I Have A Heart” is the second song by Fletcher to be released from the forthcoming cast album, after “Bad Cinderella” came out to high acclaim last October. “Bad Cinderella” has now been streamed over 1.4 million times globally and performed on “The One Show” and “Children in Need 2020.”
Andrew Lloyd Webber said, “I knew we needed a big power ballad moment for Cinderella, and I am so excited for you to finally hear it. These things tend to come to you when you least expect them, and I wrote this melody on a plane to L.A. I sent it on to our lyricist and almost instantly David Zippel came back with the fantastic line, ‘I Know I Have a Heart Because You Broke it.’ ‘I Know I Have A Heart’ is Cinderella’s ‘unrequited love moment’ in the show but I won’t tell you more than that other than what a thrill it is to have a voice like Carrie’s record it.”
The album features cast from the highly anticipated new theatrical production, which will open Spring 2021 at the Gillian Lynne Theatre in London, along with appearances from some surprise guest vocalists. All further information is available at www.andrewlloydwebberscinderella.com
The production, a complete reinvention of the classic fairy tale, is based on an original idea by Emerald Fennell, the Emmy Award®-nominated lead scriptwriter of the second season of international smash hit “Killing Eve,” with a brand-new score from the legendary composer and lyrics by David Zippel.
Cinderella will reunite Webber with director Laurence Connor and choreographer JoAnn M Hunter, who previously worked on the Olivier Award winning international hit School of Rock and the recent, sold out production of Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the London Palladium, which returns to the venue summer of 2021.
