In an incredible career spanning over seven decades, Petula Clark is a true International Superstar. She cut her first record in 1949 and has subsequently become one of the best selling British female artists in recording history, selling over 68 million records worldwide. Petula releases her brand new studio album LOST IN YOU featuring a mix of stunning new songs and beautiful covers with her own unique slant. ‘Cut Copy Me’ is a mesmerising, contemporary surprise, whilst the title track “Lost In You” reverberates around a simple, yet beautiful piano refrain. Unique cover versions include a beautiful version of the Gnarls Barkley hit “Crazy”, a touching rendition of her friend Elvis Presley’s “Love Me Tender” and a whole re-imagining of her signature hit “Downtown”.

With more than 40 hours of music on RTE Radio 1 every single week, we want to ensure the best music for our listeners is played. Every fortnight we have a new playlist of the best of the new releases from Irish and international acts. And there's always an album of the week. The tracks are rotated over the main daytime programmes and are updated every week.
