A #1 SINGLE FOR THE QUEEN?
5/17/22

Warner Classics wants a #1 for the Queen. The. real one, not the band that Freddie Mercury led.

On 5/27, Warner will release a new recording of “God Save The Queen” by Sarah Brightman and Alfie Boe along with a remastered recording of the National Anthem sung at Her Majesty’s 1953 coronation service in Westminster Abbey.

Warner Classics will campaign to get Queen Elizabeth II to the top of the U.K. singles chart for her Platinum Jubilee weekend—6/2-5—and raise money for the British Red Cross. Brightman and Boe will call on the British public to download, buy and stream the single on the week of its release. Warner Music U.K. and iTunes U.K. will donate proceeds from the double A-Side single to the British Red Cross.

 “When I received the call to ask if I wanted to be a part of this adventure with Alfie, I was excited about the opportunity and the efforts behind the project,” Brightman said. “It means a lot to us both—we’d love to see the anthem get to the top of the charts and raise meaningful funds for the incredible British Red Cross during the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations.”

Brightman and Boe are backed by the NHS Voices of Care Choir and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The release will be available worldwide on iTunes, Amazon Music and across select digital streaming platforms. The CD single will be available at select U.K. Asda stores and other retailers.
