Legacy Recordings/Roy’s Boys LLCA new Roy Orbison album combining archival vocal performances from the late rock legend with newly recorded orchestral accompaniment will be released on November 3.

A Love So Beautiful: Roy Orbison with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra features 15 tracks, including newly created versions of classics songs spanning from Orbison’s early-’60s heyday through his late-’80s comeback.

A Love So Beautiful will be available on CD, vinyl and digitally, and was produced by Don Reedman and Nick Patrick, the same team behind two recent Elvis Presley albums that followed the same concept. Among the many memorable tunes on the record are “In Dreams,” “Crying,” “Oh, Pretty Woman,” “It’s Over,” “Dream Baby,” “Only the Lonely,” “I Drove All Night” and “You Got It.”

On select tracks, Orbison’s three sons — Alex, Wesley and Roy Jr. — contribute additional instrumental backing, while, amazingly, his 10-month-old grandson Roy Orbison III is featured on tambourine and guitar on the new rendition of “Oh, Pretty Woman.” The orchestra was recorded at London’s famed Abbey Road Studios.

“If ever there were a singer whose body of work benefits from a collaboration with the Royal Philharmonic it would be Roy Orbison,” says Orbison youngest son, Alex. “During the course of his career and after his passing it was constantly noted that his transcendent vocal ability made him something of an anomaly in the world of pop and rock and that, in another life, he would have taken the classical music/opera world by storm.”

“Soon, we’ll all be able to experience that ‘life’ with the release of this project,” he adds.
