A unique coalition of two famous record labels will result in a new, all-star compilation album in October. Verve Records and Walt Disney Records will come together for ‘We Love Disney,’ featuring all-new interpretations of vintage Disney film songs by hot contemporary artists in pop, rock, R&B and country.
The album has been produced by the Grammy-winning producer David Foster, who is also Chairman of the Verve Music Group, home of the esteemed contemporary jazz label.
“When the opportunity arose to partner with Walt Disney Records, I jumped on it,” says Foster. “The Disney franchise is something that brings out the kid in all of us. No matter how old you are, 3 or 103, when you hear the word ‘Disney’ you light up from within. And there isn’t a person on the planet who doesn’t have a favorite Disney song.
“We tapped into that passion with all of the artists on the album,” continues Foster. “I tried to make the songs timeless so you couldn’t tell whether they were recorded 30 years ago or 30 years from now. The Disney catalogue is so amazing. You have so many songs to pick from, going back almost 80 years now. So it’s an endless treasure and one of the most rewarding projects that I’ve ever done — and I’ve done a lot of stuff.”
The artists and tracks to be included on ‘We Love Disney’ will be announced in the weeks to come.
