Working once again at the world-famous Abbey Road Studios, returning producers Nick Patrick and Don Reedman add elegant and spirited arrangements to accompany some of the most beloved gems from Orbison’s career—not only singles like “Blue Bayou,” “The Crowd” and “Crawling Back,” but fan favorites like “Heartbreak Radio” plus “California Blue,” “Danny Boy” and “Walk On,” three tracks that were included after Roy’s estate reached out to fans for their feedback.
Additionally, the album will feature instrumental backing from “Roy’s boys”: his three sons Wesley, Roy Jr. (on guitars) and Alex (playing drums). The album also features backing vocals on eight tracks from the “Orbison girls”: Emily Orbison (Wesley’s daughter), Jen Hicks (Wesley’s fiancé), Åsa Orbison (Roy Jr.’s wife) and Erika Wolf Orbison (Alex’s wife – their forthcoming daughter kicks along to the beat as well). Tracks like “Unchained Melody” and “Heartbreak Radio” feature as many as eight Orbisons, counting Roy himself.
