To celebrate the global success of its songs with 450 million streams and over 3 billion views on TikTok, West End & Broadway smash hit SIX is to release its Studio Album on vinyl.
A VIP launch event will be held at Banqueting House, on the site of the Palace of Whitehall built by Henry VIII, and will be livestreamed to the global Queendom by TikTok.
The music from electrifying musical SIX by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss has truly become a global phenomenon.
The songs have been streamed over 450 million times across all platforms, and had over 3 billion views on TikTok, making it the second highest streamed cast recording in the world, second only to ‘Hamilton’. The music has had 225 million streams on Spotify, over 100 million streams on YouTube (including 20 million from SIX’s own channel), 55 million streams on Apple Music, and 25 million streams on Amazon.
Now three years after the release of the SIX studio album, the original recording Queens will be reunited with Toby and Lucy at an exclusive VIP live event on Thursday 28 October to celebrate its release on vinyl.
Thanks to Historic Royal Palaces, the event will be held at the stunning Banqueting House, site of the Palace of Whitehall which was created by Henry VIII as a royal pad fit for himself and his second wife, Anne Boleyn, later the site of Charles I’s execution. It is currently closed to the public.
The celebration will be live-streamed by TikTok 13:00-13:45 BST / 09:00 – 09:45 EDT from SIX’s channel @SixTheMusical, allowing SIX fans around the world to join in.
The new vinyl edition will be officially released next year, and viewers of the livestream will be given the first opportunity to pre-order a copy.
SIX has become a global phenomenon since its early days as a student production in a 100-seat room at Sweet Venue during the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
It is now being enjoyed as much as ever in its new West End home, the Vaudeville Theatre. It continues its sold-out UK Tour and has finally opened in New York to stunning reviews at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre on Broadway, and is due to reopen in Australia this December at the Sydney Opera House.
SIX was nominated for five Olivier Awards including Best New Musical. It won the BBC Radio 2 Audience Award for Best Musical at the Whatsonstage Awards, performed on the results show of ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ and has performed annually in front of thousands at West End Live in Trafalgar Square.
The SIX Studio Album features Renée Lamb (Catherine of Aragon), Christina Modestou (Anne Boleyn), Natalie Paris (Jane Seymour), Genesis Lynea (Anna of Cleves), Aimie Atkinson (Catherine Howard), Izuka Hoyle (Catherine Parr). The recording features orchestrations by Tom Curran and is produced by Sam Featherstone, Toby Marlow, Lucy Moss and Joe Beighton, with executive producers George Stiles and Paul Lisberg.
