|Nashville, TN (July 9, 2018) - Sylvia's re-imagined signature hit, "Nobody," is impacting radio today. The revitalized version brings this Academy of Country Music Female Vocalist of the Year, Grammy nominee and multi-million selling '80s star back to the airwaves with a fresh take on a song that's true to its roots and more vibrant than ever. Radio programmers can download via PLAY MPE and Airplay Direct. Sylvia's music can be purchased at iTunes and CDBaby and is now available on all streaming platforms. She shares her thoughts on the song with fans in the video below:
In its original incarnation the crossover hit sold two million copies, spent 52 weeks on the Billboard charts, earned BMI's coveted Song of the Year award and solidified Sylvia's hold on a generation of fans. "This song has been a really good friend to me," the songstress reflects. "It's about cheating, and it's amazing to me that writers Kye Fleming and Dennis Morgan and producer Tom Collins took that serious thought and gave it a happy feel."
"Nobody" is the first single release from Sylvia's new CD, SECOND BLOOM - The Hits Re-Imagined. The disc highlights 10 of her # 1 and Top 10 hits from the RCA years (1979 to 1987). Sylvia's vision was to bring her hits from the '80s more into alignment with the music she is creating today and "Nobody" is proof of her success. As Bob Morello of the Boston Post-Gazette observes, "... mission accomplished."
