Album dedication:

How wonderful that I'm able to celebrate 25 years in this business with this special album and I have to thank everybody at Universal for getting behind it, and enabling me to do it properly. Not many artists are given a 75 piece orchestra and the run of Abbey Road Studios to record these new songs the way they should be, but bless them, they did! And I hope you like the results.

In the last 25 years, I've worked with some of the most creative and talented people in this business. Many of them have remained great friends for me, listening to this album reminds me of all those wonderful times we've had together, both on and off stage.

But the most important thing in any career, I believe, is the audience that's who we do it for, that's who we want to please. I'm blessed with having an extraordinary family of fans who have helped to give me freedom to express myself in so many different mediums and continue to do so.

Thank you and I hope this musical journey through 25 years will bring back some amazing memories, because they have for me.

See you in the next 25 years!
