Belinda Carlisle, originally known for her work fronting the Go-Go's, shared her first new single in 25 years today. “Big Big Love,” which was written with acclaimed songwriter Diane Warren, announces Carlisle's forthcoming five-track EP Kismet that's out May 12 via RAF/BMG. The two first worked together in 1987 for Carlisle's sophomore solo album Heaven on Earth (you might have heard of a little song called "Heaven Is a Place on Earth," which was on that LP).
Discussing working with Warren, Carlisle commented, “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. 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.”
Warren added: “I'm so excited for everyone to hear Belinda’s new record. 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!”
