"The Living Tree" Came to Shirley Bassey



Instead of coming out of her hands, Shirley Bassey's single "The Living Tree" came to her through two musicians.

Dame Shirley Bassey's new single "The Living Tree" has a rather long story behind the making. The single did not simply pop out of the materials accumulated for her new album.

It all started when she coincidentally met two London based writers and musicians Catherine Feeney and Nikki Lamborn in 2005. Bassey was exercising in Monte Carlo Hotel's gym when the two handed her their fourth album as duo Never the Bride titled "Surprise". Feeny's and Lamborn's main idea was to get Bassey interested in one track "The Living Tree". Bassey put it into consideration, but the CD stayed in her gym bag for some time.

It was not until Bassey's assistant reminded her about the record that she put it on. She immediately fell in love with the song that she performed it on a UK national TV station. Showing determination, Bassey recorded it under Lock Stock & Barrel label.

The single "The Living Tree" will be out in UK on April 16 and in US one week later. An album under the same title will follow not long after that. It includes the remixes of her classics as well as new tunes such as "Slave to the Rhythm" and "I Will Survive."
