Classic Album Sundays founder Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy is joined by chart-topping singer-songwriter with the phenomenally successful band Texas, Sharleen Spiteri, at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the National Album Day 2021 celebrations with Bowers & Wilkins.

2021’s National Album Day spotlighted women artists and their huge contribution to music and culture through the art of the album. Sharleen discusses her favourite women in music and how they have influenced her, culminating in choice cuts from the new Texas album Hi.

Texas’ 10th album, Hi is a stunning result of looking back with eyes fixed firmly on the future. Collaborations include Dark Fire, written with Richard Hawley, Look What You’ve Done, an intoxicating, classic duet with Clare Grogan of Altered Images, and a swaggering collaboration with the Wu-Tang Clan on the record’s title track.
