Albert Hammond has been writing hit songs for over forty years. There has not been a single decade in which Albert has not written multiple hits songs since he scored his first hit with “Little Arrows” at the age of 24. His songs have been responsible for the sale of over 360 million records worldwide including over 30 chart-topping hits. Many of his most beloved songs, like “The Air That I Breathe” and “When I Need You,” have become hits multiple times with various artists, decade after decade.

Albert achieved early success as an artist with his song “It Never Rains in Southern California,” and he has since built a multi-faceted career as an artist, songwriter and producer in both English-speaking and Latin markets. He is one of very few songwriters of our time whose songs not only have the mass appeal to make them pop hits, but whose very same songs also have the timelessness and depth that over time turns them into standards.

Albert’s songs have repeatedly topped the international pop, R&B, country, adult contemporary and Latin charts, sometimes simultaneously. Included among these are the #1 hits “When I Need You,” “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” (nominated for an Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy), “One Moment in Time,” and “To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before.”

Anthems like “One Moment in Time,” which was written as the theme song for the 1988 Olympic games and won Albert his first Emmy, and “Cantare, Cantaras,” the Spanish-market equivalent of “We Are the World,” which Albert co-wrote and produced, are just two examples of Albert’s ability to create lasting theme songs that live on in our collective consciousness.

Now after over 50 years of his successful career he recorded his first live album ever. Songbook 2013 was recorded in Wilhelmshaven, Germany during his recent SONGBOOK Tour, one very special night, a night that catches the hilarious moment between a stunning performer and his audience. Wilhelmshaven is a sleepy country town in Germany. Albert Hammond says “People who live on the country side really appreciate that I´m coming into town to perform for them, you can feel it and that makes it very special for me.”

The Live Double CD with over 30 classical songs of Albert Hammond is a testament of an outstanding singer and performer, it proves his fantastic skills as an Entertainer who collaborates with his audience.

The  songs on Songbook 2013 are part of the last 50 years of music history and have been hit songs in every decade. Classic songs that are brought back and sung by its creator, an artist in his second youth who lives his life encouraged by thrill and hope. Because, as Hammond says, “I’m gonna turn 70, I feel loved when I am on stage. I just want to be where people love me.”
