Sarah Brightman

Not even Universal Music has a division in space – yet – so space-bound songstress Sarah Brightman has instead opted to sign a licensing deal with the major’s German-based Koch Universal label for the release of her upcoming album ‘Dreamchaser’.

The mega-major will handle distribution of the new record in all territories outside North America and China. The new long player will be pre-empted by Brightman’s cover of Elbow’s ‘One Day Like This’, which is something worth pondering. ‘Out of this world’ or ‘off the planet’?
