Product Description

Product Description

Wilde Winter Songbook is a delightful collection of new, original ‘Winter Warmers’ and some Christmas classics. Featuring duets with fellow 80s legends Rick Astley, Nik Kershaw and her husband, actor Hal Fowler, as well as a stunning Fleet Foxes cover version with Kim, her father Marty Wilde and brother Ricky in three-part harmony, the album presents Kim as never before on record.

RAK Studios in London was the base for the sessions, where Ricky Wilde and his fellow members of Kim’s live band have created a genuinely beautiful record and, whilst the album is not lacking in either humour or humility, Kim’s vocals are delivered with a warmth and a presence, entirely appropriate to convey her honest and profound lyrics on the six new, original songs.

What's not to love about this festive album that consists of 6 covers of classic winter songs and 6 entirely new tracks from the Wilde camp.

WINTER WONDERLAND - A beautiful duet with Rick Astley opens the album on a warm and joyous note and gives you the perfect taste of things to come. Kim and Rick harmonise perfectly, a brilliant lead track.

HOPE - (Written by K.Wilde / R.Wilde / M.Cummins) The first of the new tracks, A message of 'Hope' to us all which is beautifully written, arranged, sung, infect everything, a totally lovely piece of work.

ONE - (Written by K.Wilde) Written solely by Kim this track takes you on a journey, it's very difficult to describe in words but is probably best listened to so you can go there yourself. It's warm and romantic and perfectly put together. It paints a scene that will strike a chord with everyone.

HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS - This Christmas classic gets the Wilde treatment, soothing and relaxing, Kim's voice suits it to perfection.

WINTER SONG - To me this track is like part song and part prayer, although Kim has pointed out that there are no religious references on the album. The harmonies suit the song perfect and yet again Kim's voice shines through.

NEW LIFE - (Written by K.Wilde / R.Wilde) The opening to this song is the sound of an ultrasound scan, and, if you turn the sound up you can hear the whisper 'Its amazing isn't it' which sets the scene just perfect for this song all about the beginnings of 'new life' and the journey that lies ahead of every unborn child. Written while 2 members of the Wilde family were expecting, this song is personal, yet an ode to every unborn child there is today.

Wasn't sure what to expect from this album! Was it going to be Cheesy Christmas tunes? How surprised I am! It is another classic album from Kim and her family. Every song is perfectly created. The vocals are absolutely amazing. This album is a personal experience that Kim has shared with us. I absolutely love it! Thank you again Kim, for sharing with us xxxx

Where do I start? I received this album yesterday and was going to wait till Dec 1st to play it as it is a Christmas album. Then I thought, no, I must play it so I can give Kim feed back and review it on here etc, good excuse!

Kim and her brother Ricky have spent the best part of the year writing this album. They are both as excited and enthusiastic about the record as us fans are. There are six covers of classic Christmas songs; 'Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree'(a song Kim sang with the late Mel Smith in 1987 for Comic Relief), 'Let It Snow', 'White Winter Hymnal', 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas', 'Winter Song' and 'Winter Wonderland'. and six brand new ones: 'Hope', 'Song For Beryl', 'Burn Gold(Silent Night)','Hey Mister Snowman', 'One' and 'New Life'. It is quite rare for people to write new Christmas songs these days so this is impressive.
Along with Kim and Ricky are Scarlett Wilde(Ricky's daughter), singing backing harmonies.
As I play this album, I can imagine my family around me and almost see decorated Christmas trees with all their lights.
It is a very special Christmas album,some of the songs very personal to Kim. I love it all but do have some personal favourites:
Song For Beryl is a song written by Kim and Ricky for a dear friend of her family, it is a sweet, touching song, mingled with slight sadness but still with a message of love.
Hope, features backing vocals by Kim's daughter Rose and another friend, it is a lovely song, beautifully sang by Kim and the two youngsters. I love hearing children and young people singing at Christmas, it just works so well.

Simply gorgeous from start to finish...
I have long wanted an album to focus on Kim's classily warm and heartfelt vocals. She sings better now than ever before. So so beautiful and perfectly pitched for each song.
The range of subject matter is very wide, from the joyous (Hey Mister Snowman, Rockin' around the Christmas tree), to the hopeful (Hope and One) and on to the sad (Song for Beryl).
Where Kim knocks spots off other Christmas albums is that she is completely convincing in all song types and holds the attention from the first chord to the last.
As ever, the strongest lyrics are from Kim herself..she writes with such a strong personal thump, with a clarity which suggests that she understands song creation and her audience so well.
It is just oozing with delicious qualities all the way through.
Thank you for this Kim and the gang. Stunning.

By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 14 Nov. 2013
Format: Audio CD
Kim Wilde had a few UK pop hits in the eighties and I knew she had a good voice, but all those synthesizers didn't always do her music justice. Now she has a cleaner sound and is free to express herself through her music as she wishes.

This album contains four festive standards in their entirety (Winter wonderland, Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Let it snow, Rockin' around the Christmas tree), the first and last of these being duets. Additionally, Burn gold (an original song) morphs into Silent night.

Winter song (a cover of a Sara Bareilles song) and White winter hymnal (featuring her father, Marty Wilde) are the only original songs here that Kim didn't write or co-write. Of the six songs that Kim wrote or co-wrote, it's hard to pick a favorite because they are all so good, but based on early impressions, I particularly like Hope, Song for Beryl and Hey Mister Snowman, though the others are not far behind. I'd love to think that one of the six songs could end up becoming a Christmas standard, but only time will tell.

While I liked Kim's eighties music, Kim has far exceeded expectations with this Christmas album. Amazing stuff.
