A new album from B.J. Thomas, In Remembrance – Love Songs & Lost Treasures, will be released on Feb. 4 from Real Gone Music.
The 18-song CD will include 13 unreleased songs, eight unreleased songs from the Warner-Reprise Records vault, four songs from a limited edition direct response album in the 90s, rare photos, outtakes recorded with veteran songwriter/producer Steve Dorff, and more.
Thomas mixed genres throughout his career, joining legendary Memphis producer Chips Moman for a series of hits, including “Hooked on a Feeling,” “The Eyes of a New York Woman,” “I Just Can’t Help Believing,” and the No. 1 Bacharach-David hit “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head,” the Oscar-winning song from Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid.
His crossover to country was cemented with his 1975 pop/country/AC million-seller “(Hey, Won’t You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song.” Simultaneously, Thomas became the first Platinum-selling contemporary Christian artist with a string of popular albums in the late 1970s and early 1980s, which also won him five Grammys and numerous other awards.
Thomas passed away on May 29, 2021, after a battle with cancer. He was 78.
