Jason and the Golden Fleece, the epic new musical based on the Greek myth, has announced the release of new single “For Evermore” featuring Australian star Amy Manford, previous leading lady of The Phantom of the OperaWest End.
Jason and the Golden Fleece is a stage musical with original book, music & lyrics by British husband-and-wife team Amy Lyddon and Nick Morrell. Full of adventure, comedy and romance, with a touch of magic, it tells the story of the Greek mythological hero, Jason, and his epic quest for the Golden Fleece.
First performed at The Other Palace in 2019 as a school production and met with overwhelming success, the musical has been developed into a full-scale family show. ‘Exclusive first listen’ studio recordings have also been announced, featuring a host of West End stars, including Jarnéia Richard-Noel and Millie O’Connell (Six the Musical), Katherine Glover (Thoroughly Modern Millie), Rob Houchen and Bradley Jaden (Les Misérables).
In the forthcoming single, Manford sings the role of the princess Medea, a strong-willed sorceress who dreams of escaping from her confinement within the palace walls and finding love.
“When theatres became closed for the foreseeable future, we threw all of our energy into recording instead”, says Lyddon, the composer and lyricist.
“We’re thrilled to be releasing this track at a time when freedom -the main theme of this song -has such fresh importance. Amy is an incredible artist and we’re delighted to be collaborating with her”.
“For Evermore” will be available worldwide across all platforms from Friday 11th June.
