Info for Rise Up
Sir Cliff Richard returns, with an album of his first new material in 14 years. Rise Up is Richard's first album of new material in 14 years (since Something's Goin' On from 2004).
Produced by Rupert Christie, the album is a powerful statement of defiance and return. Drawing on new songwriting talent as well as some of his biggest hit writers.
Recorded at Miami’s Criteria Studios in 2018, the album not only features title track Rise Up written by Devil Woman hitmaker Terry Britten and his co-writer Graham Lyle (What’s Love Got To Do With It, We Don’t Need Another Hero) but other new up-tempo contemporary songs including Reborn written by Chris Eaton (Saviour’s Day) and Steve Mandile and River Flow (Micky Steel/Henk Pool/Joona Pietikäinen).
Cliff Richard explained: “I chose 'Rise Up' as the title track because after the bad period I went through in my life, I've managed to ‘Rise Up’ out of what seemed like a quagmire.
I love the lyric 'They're never gonna break me down, they're never gonna take me down, they know I’m gonna rise up feeling stronger’. It is always great to sing lyrics you can ‘feel’ and I really felt those words!
So, I believe that we have the right title for the album and I am so thrilled in the way that it has turned out.
I loved singing every track. To have these great writers supplying me with their songs, is an honour!
It has been put to me that a new audience might give me a ‘listen to’, and that is an exciting thought, and if they do and don’t like it they can buy something else.
Give me a chance, that is all we can ask… close your eyes and tune in. My longevity should be considered a plus, not a drawback."
The album follows Cliff Richard's legal battle with the BBC, and the singer has said of the album's title: "I chose Rise Up as the title track because after the bad period I went through in my life, I've managed to 'Rise Up' out of what seemed like a quagmire". All tracks produced by Rupert Christie; additional production by Jochem van der Saag and Jorge Vivo. Except "The Minute You're Gone", "Miss You Nights", "Devil Woman" and "Some People" produced by James Morgan and Juliette Pochin.

I was born in Lucknow/India on 14th October 1940 but my family moved to England when I was eight. People often say that my band The Shadows and I invented British Rock'n'Roll when we released our first hit single "Move It" in 1958. My first number one was "Living Doll" in 1959. Since then I've spent a large part of my life in the charts. In fact, I'm the only artist to have had a number one hit in five consecutive decades. It's hard to believe I've sold 260 million records over the years and that this makes me the most successful U.K. recording artist of all time. My biggest hit was "We Don't Talk Anymore" in 1979. When I received my knighthood from the Queen in 1995 however, it was for the charity work I've been involved in since I became a Christian in the early 60s. It would be impossible to list all my achievements, records, movies and awards here but there's an extensive biography and discography on my homepage. Personally, I don't dwell on the past too much. I'd much rather look into the future and I can't wait for my next big project. You'll be the first to know what it is as I will post my news here as soon as something interesting comes up. Stay tuned!
