Sir Cliff Richard is ready to put the past behind him and is gearing up for the launch of a new album – his 101st!

A jubilant Sir Cliff told BBC Radio 2 he was “back to work” now his abuse claims ordeal is over and is setting his sights on a Christmas hit.

At 75, the veteran singer was happy to get back into the musical seat and to celebrate his new album, Just… Fabulous Rock ‘n’ Roll he jumped on a motorbike.

The album is said to feature renditions of songs such as ‘Roll Over Beethoven’, ‘Great Balls of Fire’, and ‘Sweet Little Sixteen’, as well as a new original track, ‘It’s Better to Dream’ and his debut single from 1958, ‘Move It’.

The album — his 45th studio recording — was recorded in Nashville and it’s a ‘duet’ with Elvis Presley that makes Just… Fabulous Rock ‘n’ Roll a special album for Sir Cliff as he realises a long-held dream.

As you might expect, Elvis appears on the new version of ‘Blue Suede Shoes’ with Sir Cliff’s voice mixed with archival recordings of The King. The track was made with the approval of Elvis Presley’s estate.

“My new CD is another dip into an incredible period of our musical history,” the singer says. “A happy, creative and in many ways innocent time.”

Sir Cliff has previously had number ones over the festive season with three singles and one album all making their way to the top of the charts.

In more good news for the singer, it was revealed on September 27 that the Crown Prosecution Service upheld its decision not to prosecute him over claims of historical sex offences. Two of his accusers had appealed the June ruling over allegations dating back to 1958 after a 22-month inquiry.

Sir Cliff’s new album is due for release in November.

Showed so,diarists at the two wine signings in Portugal, this year there was at least one thousand people queuing in the hot sun to to have that special photo with him, me included.
