Capitol Records has announced the new album Neil Diamond With The London Symphony Orchestra, Classic Diamonds, to be released worldwide on November 20.

The set features new vocal performances by the world-renowned singer-songwriter of many of his best-loved hits, accompanied by the London Symphony Orchestra. The album was recorded both at Abbey Road Studios in London and at Diamond’s studio in Los Angeles. It features such all-time favorites as “I Am…I Said,” “Love on the Rocks,” “September Morn,” and “Sweet Caroline.”

The first release from the set, his new version of the US Top 5 hit of 1982, “Heartlight,” is now available to stream and download, and with pre-orders of the album. The celebrated song was written by Diamond with Burt Bacharach and Carole Bayer Sager, and inspired by the smash hit film E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial.

    I want to buy the CD, but don’t see it listed in Neil’s Store on his website. Can’t we buy it from Neil’s website, like all his other albums?

    Your help is greatly appreciated!
