Sir Cliff Richard
will celebrate his 75th birthday with a newly released triple-disc collection of his greatest hits -including a brand new studio track.
The new song - Golden - is a tribute to Sir Cliff's army of fans for the support they have shown during his stellar career.
Written by long standing writer friend Chris Eaton - who also wrote 'Saviour's Day' - it was originally penned in time to mark his 50 years in the music business in 2008. Cliff performed it in his concerts that year - but it has only now been recorded.
It will feature on the compilation album - Cliff Richard
'75 at 75' - to be released by Rhino Records on 18th September.
As well as 'Golden', the new triple-disc collection of Cliff's greatest hits features an incredible twelve No.1 hit singles including 'Living Doll', 'The Young Ones', 'Summer Holiday', 'We Don't Talk Anymore' and the Christmas classic 'Mistletoe and Wine'. The hits continue in the form of 'Devil Woman', 'Wired for Sound', 'Move It' and many others.
