Singer, actress, TV presenter and West End star Denise Van Outen returns to the music world with her new single “From New York To LA”.
It is produced by Steve Anderson (Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears) and has been released to celebrate Pride month in the UK. The song features Denise’s trademark vocals with an intro to the song featuring Drag Race superstar judge Michelle Visage.
“From New York To LA” was written by Canadian songwriter Gilles Vigneault (b.1928) and originally recorded as “Mon Pays” for the Canadian film ‘La Neige A Fondu Sur La Manicouagan’ (Snow Has Melted On The Manicouagan). It was rewritten with additional lyrics by Gene Williams as “From New York To LA” and recorded by Canadian singer Patsy Gallant in 1977, becoming her biggest hit record reaching No.6 in the UK (her only single to chart here), No.6 in her homeland and No.10 in Australia. The song was a club hit across mainland Europe again in 1995 by dance act N.Y.L.A. featuring Stephanie McKay on vocals.
Denise’s version is the follow up to last year’s “On My Own” which was her first new recorded music since her 2003 album, “Tell Me On A Sunday”. Denise is currently to be found each week on Channel 4’s daytime show Steph’s Packed Lunch as a presenter and recently released her autobiography, A Bit Of Me. She has enjoyed huge success on screen and stage since her first break came in 1996 presenting The Big Breakfast.
Since then, Denise has appeared on the stage with great success starring in Chicago (West End and Broadway), Tell Me On A Sunday (West End), Legally Blonde (West End) and Rent (West End). She now headlines Proud Cabaret to sell-out shows in London and you will have heard her narrating one of the UK’s biggest reality shows, The Only Way Is Essex. Denise has also starred in Eastenders, been a judge for two seasons of Ireland’s Got Talent for TV3, alongside appearing on Dancing on Ice, The Celebrity Circle, Cooking With The Stars and The Masked Singer. This Spring she was a guest judge on The Masked Singer Live tour.
