Now, this is pretty embarrassing. ’80s pop singer Belinda Carlisle has reissued her 1996 album A Man & a Woman in the United Kingdom with a glaring error, reports Super Deluxe Edition. The album was meant to feature Belinda’s version of the song “I Won’t Say (I’m In Love),” the love theme to Disney’s animated film Hercules. Unfortunately, the version of the track that appears on the reissue is the Disney Cast version.
Someone from Belinda’s team took to Facebook to explain and apologize for the error:
Hi All. First of all our apologies for not posting about this issue yesterday when it first came to light but the person who would do that (me) was in meetings / flying all day and so didn’t get a chance until just now.
So, to cut to the chase, you are all correct and we are both mortally embarrassed and clearly a bit stupid for releasing a record with a recording on it that isn’t even by the artist we all represent. What can we say? We are so, so sorry both to all the fans but most particularly to Belinda for this embarrassing error and we will make it right. We are not quite sure how yet but we will.
For those of you who are interested in such things this screw up came about because Universal gave us the wrong track as a digital file and somehow, we have no idea how yet, it slipped through the screening process. Which is most puzzling because we put the same tack on the recent ‘Anthology’ compilation we released and that was the right version but this is the wrong one. Go figure.
Again our sincerest apologies to you all. More news as we get it.
Belinda released A Man & a Woman in 1996. The record saw the singer teaming up with Rick Nowels, Maria Vidal, Ellen Shipley, Charlotte Caffey, Neil Finn and Roxette co-founder Per Gessle – who also produced one of the tracks. The record spawned several singles, most notably the U.K. Top 10 “In Too Deep.”
