The world remembers Roy Orbison as the silken-voiced singer behind classics like ‘Oh, Pretty Woman’, ‘Only the Lonely’ and ‘I Drove All Night.’ In fact, Elvis Presley called Orbison “the greatest singer in the world,” impressed with his technical artistry and the way his voice blended romance and melancholy.

Sadly, the world also remembers the fact that he passed away much too early, in 1988. Now, three decades later, an Orbison revival is underway. This week, a new album, A Love So Beautiful, that pairs classic vocal recordings of Orbison with brand new accompaniment by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will release. Also just out, a new biography titled The Authorized Roy Orbison.

Next up, the Orbison estate has announced dates for Roy Orbison: In Dreams, a new tour that will see Roy Orbison in holographic form performing his biggest hits backed by a full symphonic orchestra. The tour will travel through the UK in April 2018, followed by an Australian tour in May.
