This morning, Aled Jones and Russell Watson have released the official video for their single ‘Where Have All The Flowers Gone/Here’s To The Heroes’ – exclusively on Classic FM.
‘Where Have All the Flowers Gone/Here’s To The Heroes’ is Aled Jones and Russell Watson’s first single from their debut duet album, set for release on 9 November 2018.
The song marks both the centenary of the end of World War One and the 70th anniversary of the National Health Service.
Aled said of the track: “We loved the idea of honouring service men and women through our music, as well as our everyday heroes such as doctors and nurses.”

In Harmony will include well-loved arias and hymns like ‘Ave Maria’, as well as modern classics such as ‘You Raise Me Up’. The album will be released this Friday, and you can pre-order a copy here.
Watson said of the album: “What I particularly like is the way that it is not just a collaboration as such where I sing a verse, Aled sings a verse and everybody joins in on the chorus. It’s been really cleverly written and arranged so that our voices blend really well.”
Although Jones and Watson have been friends for over 20 years and enjoyed successful solo singing careers, this is the first time they have collaborated on a project together.
They will also be embarking on their first joint UK tour next year – tickets are available here.
