Sex and the City
Various Artists
Decca 478 0652 (EU)
15 Tracks 59:02 mins

The big screen spin-off of popular TV series Sex and the City received its premiere in London last week and goes on UK release from 28th May.
Decca will release the soundtrack a couple of days earlier on 26th May. The album consists of songs, some more well known than others, by a diverse range of artists, including Fergie, Oscar-winning actress and singer Jennifer Hudson, Duffy, Nina Simone and Joss Stone. Most are new songs to me, but there's an acceptable cover of the Bee Gees' "How Deep is Your Love" and an awful remix of the classic Bacharach/David song "The Look of Love." A somewhat unusual acoustic version of "Aul Lang Syne" is also included. The album concludes with a brief big band rendition of the "Sex and the City Movie Theme" by the Pfeiffer Broz. Orchestra.
The whole package is put together by music producer Salaam Remi, who also wrote the Fergie number featured on the album, one of two new songs, the other being the Jennifer Hudson number.
