Polydor Records have announced the release of “I Know I Have a Heart”, the third song to be released from the upcoming world premiere production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella, starring Carrie Hope Fletcher.
Previous songs have included Fletcher singing “Bad Cinderella” and Prince Charming Ivano Turco singing “Only You, Lonely You”. The full album is to be released in Spring, with pre-order available now.
This new version of Cinderella is written and created by Killing Eve and double Golden Globe-nominee Emerald Fennell, with lyrics by David Zippel and music by Lloyd Webber.
Lloyd Webber said: “I knew we needed a big power ballad moment for Cinderella and I am so excited for you to finally hear it. These things tend to come to you when you least expect them and I wrote this melody on a plane to LA. I sent it on to our lyricist and almost instantly David Zippel came back with the fantastic line, “I Know I Have a Heart Because You Broke it”. ‘I Know I Have A Heart’ is Cinderella’s ‘unrequited love moment’ in the show but I won’t tell you more than that other than what a thrill it is to have a voice like Carrie’s record it.”
The production is set to open in Spring 2021 at the Gillian Lynne Theatre and is a complete reinvention of the classic fairy-tale. It reunites Lloyd Webber with director Laurence Connor and choreographer JoAnn M Hunter, who previously worked on the Olivier Award-winning School of Rock and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at The London Palladium.
