CROSSOVER artist Katherine Jenkins no doubts is the subject of may a person's daydream.

Recorded in Los Angeles and London in spring this year, Katherine has once again teamed up with John Shanks in the US - credits include Take That and Westlife and Katherine's hit 2010 single (Tell Me I'm Not Dreaming) - and Simon Franglen in London - credits include Barbra Streisand, Cline Dion and the Oscar-nominated soundtrack to James Cameron's Avatar.

Stand out tracks on the album include the stunning Shanks produced Break It To My Heart, a deeply moving interpretation of the Celtic classic Black Is The Colour, I Dreamed A Dream from Les Misrables rarely performed in French, a new composition of Ave Maria and Katherine's stirring tribute to service men and women through the ages, A Flower Tells A Story.
