Belinda Carlisle Releases First Single from Forthcoming EP
Belinda Carlisle has teamed up with songwriter Diane Warren for “Big Big Love,” the first single from her forthcoming EP, “Kismet.”
The five track digital EP, featuring the single and four additional new songs all with words and music by Diane Warren is scheduled to be released May 12 again via RAF/BMG.
The Go-Go’s front woman recently recorded another Warren track – “Gonna Be You” which is featured in the movie “80 For Brady”. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer teamed up with Dolly Parton, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan and Debbie Harry – a line-up of female icons for the ages.
Discussing working with Diane Warren, Belinda Carlisle commented, “Twenty-seven years on from making my last English language pop record I really wasn’t thinking I would ever make one again…… and I was quite happy with that idea. Then a chance encounter in a coffee shop led me back to the wonderful Diane Warren and she gave me the incredible gift of this song and the other songs on my upcoming EP.”
Carlisle goes on to add, “Diane’s songwriting is both a joy and mystery to me. She makes it look so easy, where I imagine it must be unbelievably hard, to do what she does so amazingly well over so many years and so many records. I can’t thank her enough for writing this music for me and I only hope everyone else loves it as much as I do.”
Adds Warren: “I’m so excited for everyone to hear Belinda’s new record. She’s never sounded better. It’s so great to be working together again after all these years. From “I Get Weak” and now to “Big Big Love,” a new chapter has begun. I can’t wait for everyone to hear these new hits!”
