What more needs to be said about the absolute legend and thoroughly lovely man Pete Waterman? The man shaped a music generation in the 80s and 90s with the likes of Kylie, Jason, Rick Astley, Dead Or Alive, Bananarama, Sinitta, Sonia, Mel & Kim and of course Steps in the last 90s / early 00s.
Now get set for a superb new album Pete Waterman Presents The Hit Factory, a three CD set bursting with The Hit Factory’s biggest and best-selling singles, is to be released by PWL and Sony Music on July 9. Boasting fifty pop masterpieces, Pete Waterman Presents The Hit Factory is packed with the Stock Aitken Waterman and PWL classics that came to define an era in British music history.
Stock Aitken Waterman scored an unrivalled run of global hits in the 80s and 90s, they launched the careers of Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan amongst others, and are now acknowledged as one of the most successful songwriting and producing partnerships of all time, while Pete Waterman’s PWL empire became the ‘British Motown’. Now Pete Waterman Presents The Hit Factory brings these hits together in one sensational package.
Celebrating the irresistible pop that became the soundtrack to a generation, this must-have collection contains classic hits from the likes of Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Rick Astley, Bananarama, Mel & Kim, Dead Or Alive, Steps, Sinitta, Sonia and many others.
The release of the album coincides with Pete Waterman Presents Hit Factory Live, a once-in-a-lifetime spectacular taking place in London’s Hyde Park on July 11 and featuring the classic artists from the PWL Hit Factory together on one bill.
