Belinda Carlisle announces first new pop single in 26 years

Pop star teams with Diane Warren for new track

Belinda Carlisle releases “Big Big Love,” which marks the pop icon’s first new English language studio recording since 1997 and the triumphant reunion with the incomparable songwriter Diane Warren. Produced by Mati Gavriel, the single is released on Warren’s label imprint RAF through BMG and is available now on all streaming platforms and digital services.

“Big Big Love” will be followed by a five track digital EP entitled, Kismet, featuring the single and four additional new songs all with words and music by Diane Warren. The EP is scheduled to be released May 12th via RAF/BMG.

Currently celebrating more than 35 years as a solo performer with her critically acclaimed Decades Tour, the release of “Big Big Love” will be a delight to Belinda Carlisle fans around the world. With a great vocal performance, driving synths and an amazing hook, “Big Big Love” sounds as huge as its title, with all the “hear it once, love it always” appeal of her biggest hits.

“Twenty-seven years on from making my last English language pop record I really wasn’t thinking I would ever make one again…… and I was quite happy with that idea,” Carlisle shares. “Then a chance encounter in a coffee shop led me back to the wonderful Diane Warren and she gave me the incredible gift of this song and the other songs on my upcoming EP.”

She adds, “Diane’s songwriting is both a joy and mystery to me. She makes it look so easy, where I imagine it must be unbelievably hard, to do what she does so amazingly well over so many years and so many records. I can’t thank her enough for writing this music for me and I only hope everyone else loves it as much as I do.”

“I’m so excited for everyone to hear Belinda’s new record,” Warren states. “She’s never sounded better. It’s so great to be working together again after all these years. From ‘I Get Weak’ and now to ‘Big Big Love,’ a new chapter has begun. I can’t wait for everyone to hear these new hits!”

Belinda and Diane first collaborated in 1987 for Carlisle’s second solo album Heaven on Earth, which featured the Diane Warren penned songs, “I Get Weak” and “World Without You,” and also the anthemic, “Heaven Is A Place On Earth,” the track that shot to the top of the charts all over the world and established Belinda Carlisle as a global star.

In addition to Carlisle’s new solo outings, she has also recently recorded another Diane Warren track – “Gonna Be You” which is featured in the movie 80 For Brady. This song saw Carlisle team with Dolly Parton, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan and Debbie Harry – a line-up of female icons for the ages.
