Alfie Boe Vows To Reunite With Michael Ball

  • 08 September 2018

Alfie Boe has vowed to reunite with Michael Ball once he has had some fun as a solo artist.

The 44-year-old tenor is releasing 'As Time Goes By' - his first solo album in four years - this November and although he is excited for people to hear his interpretations of a host of classic 1930s tunes he has promised to work with his great friend and regular collaborator again in the near future following the enormous success of their LPs 'Together' and 'Together Again'.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz at The Savoy Hotel in London, he said: ''We will get back together - we've been speaking about it I think it works and we enjoy working together.

''It's just we both started as solo artists so we both have our own individual careers to focus on as well

''So it's like a separate little project we've spoken about ideas for a new album and I'm sure it'll happen next year some time, we'll see.''

The upcoming record contains a host of beloved songs from that era

and on the Cab Calloway 1931 classic 'Minnie the Moocher' Alfie duets with 'Frasier' star Kelsey Grammer, whilst on 'Stompin' at the Savoy' he sings with Kara Tointon.

The British star admits his main goal when recording the album at the world famous Capitol Studios in Los Angeles - the location where Frank Sinatra made so many of his best music - was to make a collection of tracks that he liked, because he's sure his fans enjoy the same music as him.

He added: ''Initially, with an album, my goal is to release music that I love and to hopefully have it connect with an audience young and old everything else that goes with it is a bonus.''

Alfie will be touring in March and thinks his new selection of songs is perfect for a relaxed evening and would make good Christmas listening.

He said: ''Well I'll be taking it on the road I'll be touring in March it's a great peaceful relaxation album it's got some really fiery numbers in there too.

''But it's got some nice slow smoky New Orleans style Jazz songs on there like this one 'As Time Goes By' the title track and it hopefully will appeal to the audience for some nice, drink a glass of wine of an evening and at Christmas listening to it would be you know, see how it goes.''

'As Time Goes By' will be available from November 23.
