The new album follows the release of two EPs, She Is Risen (Vol. 1) and “She Is Risen (Vol. 2) with songs from the Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice musical.

Morgan James says the idea for the project first came to her in a dream several years ago. The inspiration led to a one-night-only concert performance of the musical with Shoshana Bean in 2017.

James said: “Jesus Christ Superstar has always been one of my favourite scores and shows of all time. I grew up on the original concept recording, and to me, it is essential listening. I want this all-female version to be a love letter and homage to the score, and to serve as its own essential listening for a new generation of musical theatre lovers.

“Working on this project was perhaps the most challenging and rewarding experience of my career.

“I am so honoured that all of these superstar women said ‘yes’ and came to the studio with such graciousness and sense of collaboration. When women come together, incredible things happen.”
