Sony Classical has announced the exclusive signing of soprano Rachel Willis Sørensen’s self-titled debut album, “Rachel.”

The prestigious label also announced the release of a new single, showcasing the recording’s first work, Dvořák’s “Měsíčku na nebi hlubokém (Song to the Moon).”

The single is now available on Apple Music’s playlist “The Classical Voice.”

Sørensen stated on the Sony Classical site, “I have dreamed of recording an album since I knew such a thing existed. There are not words enough to share my thrill and honour of recording with this prestigious label some of the dearest music to my heart and sharing it with YOU!”

Sony has slated the full album to drop on April 8, 2022, and will feature opera arias and scenes from works by Verdi, Mozart, Puccini, Dvořák, and Lehár.

Sony Classical President Per Huber stated on the same page, “Rachel’s unique voice and outstanding stage presence are simply remarkable. During the recording sessions for Jonas Kaufmann’s Vienna album with the Vienna Philharmonic, she also enthusiastically excited us with her sheer incredible linguistic talent. We are now looking forward to releasing her first solo album and joining her on an exciting recording career.”
