Listen: Bonnie Tyler and Mike Batt- release “lost” hit TV series single
Written by Gavin on 20th October 2022
Mike Batt and Bonnie Tyler have released, for the first time, a song they recorded exactly 30 years ago,in 1992, for ITV’s hit animation series THE DREAMSTONE. Considered too adult-romantic to be included in the 52 half hours of the award-winning children’s series,the remastered track is now released as a single.
The stunning power-ballad represents the two principal characters (Rufus and Amberley) of THEDREAMSTONE fighting against all odds to overcome the dangers and trials of a brutal world, emerging victorious and united.One of Bonnie Tyler’s most emotive and powerful vocal performances, coupled with Mike’s characteristic plaintive pop tenor voice,this song of hoper esonates in today’s challenging times.
“When we recorded this at Abbey Road and I heard Bonnie’s spectacular and heartfelt vocal, it was a real goose bump moment. She delivers her interpretation with such conviction. I’m so glad thatit’s gettingits moment “in the sun”-and itdoesn’tseem to have dated, sonically”
“Mike writes such beautiful songs. One of my all-time favourites is‘Bright Eyes’that he wrote and produced for Art Garfunkel. So,when he asked met o sing with him on “Into the Sunset” all those years ago I was honoured. I’m so happy it’s being released as a single now”
