THE CORRS honour Christine McVie with stunning cover of Fleetwood Mac's 'Songbird'

The Corrs

The Corrs today release their stunning cover of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Songbird’ - taken from Best Of The Corrs - newly reissued in expanded form for the first time on vinyl - out tomorrow, December 1st, in a stunning limited edition 2LP gold vinyl format and expanded 2 CD collection.

The track arrives on the first anniversary of the passing of Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie. As well as Songbird, the band have also recorded beautiful new versions of the classic songs ‘Little Lies’(out now) and Everywhere - produced and recorded by Guy Chambers. A two-track 7” single of Little Lies/Songbird was released on very limited D2C on October 27th.

Listen to 'Songbird' - BELOW:

Originally released in 2001, Best Of The Corrs is a 21-track double platinum hits collection covering The Corrs’ hugely successful first three studio albums Forgiven Not Forgotten, Talk On Corners and In Blue, including hits such as Breathless, Runaway, What Can I Do, Radio, Dreams and more.

The Corrs are a family affair: Andrea (lead vocals, piano), Sharon (violin, piano, vocals), Caroline (drums, piano, vocals) and Jim (guitar, piano, vocals), who have sold over 40 million albums worldwide since their 1995 debut album Forgiven Not Forgotten crashed into the charts and stole our hearts. An enchanting mix of traditional Celtic music with a pop-rock twist, The Corrs have written some of the biggest songs of the last three decades.

They have enjoyed a career that has also seen Platinum records, BRIT Awards, Grammy and Ivor Novello nominations, the honour of being the only band to be asked to perform at Nelson Mandela’s 85th birthday, and more recently, the Queen’s Jubilee in 2002.

Their last album, 2017’s Jupiter Calling, was The Corrs’ seventh and most distinguished album - recorded with legendary producer T. Bone Burnett at London’s RAK Studios.

In 2022, Talk On Corners, The Corrs’ record-breaking second album, turned 25! The UK charts show it’s the fourth biggest record of the 1990s, and in 2016, it was still listed as the 28th biggest-selling album of all time. Its success – returning to Number 1 six times – brought their 1995 debut Forgiven, Not Forgotten up to Number 2, making them the rare band to achieve that feat. It was influential too, with Ed Sheeran citing the band’s 90s success as the inspiration behind his hit single Galway Girl.

The Corrs have just come off the road after a rapturous 12-date tour of southeast Asia, Australia & New Zealand that kicked off October 18th in Jakarta.
