Cliff Richard recalls Tom Jones encounter on Saturday Kitchen

The 82-year-old legend has announced an orchestral album celebrating 65 years in the music industry.

Sir Cliff Richard’s latest record is called Strings – My Kinda Life and is made up of seven decades of hits.

Songs included are the likes of Living Doll, Summer Holiday, We Don’t Talk Anymore and his duet with the late Olivia Newton-John, Suddenly.

On the album announcement he said: “After 65 years in the business, it is really an emotional journey to listen back to some of my original vocals and hear just how young I was, and how my style changed over the years.

“These tracks mean a lot to me and they are so refreshed with the orchestral arrangements.”

Sir Cliff continued: “The most emotional track on the album for me is Suddenly with my dear friend Olivia Newton-John.

“We recorded this version together live for my 75th birthday in 2015 and it always strikes me how well our voices sounded together, and the crystal gentility that Olivia always managed to exude.

“I’m glad I was able to highlight this great performance again.”
