Music industry legend Chris Birkett releases timely smooth rock love ballad 

TORONTO, CANADA – One of the music industry’s premier artists and entertainers has dropped yet another hit single. Chris Birkett – whose music collaborations with A-list international artists include Sinead O’Connor, Dexys Midnight Runners, Talking Heads, Led Zeppelin, and more – has recently released a smooth rock love ballad called “Precious Love” that is burning like a wildfire around the globe.  

Featuring Birkett’s signature raspy voice set against a saxophone melody and smooth guitar riffs, the song feels like Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams with a little bit of Tom Petty. It’s a sound that fans of Birkett have been familiar with for years, and one that he’s perfected while working in the inner circles of the industry for the last 40-plus years. His work – both original and through collaborations with other big-name artists – have sold more than 100 million records and helped earn four Canadian Junos, a Grammy, a Polaris Music Prize, and three international AMPEX Golden Reel Awards for excellence in the music business. And with “Precious Love” he puts that pedigree and excellence on full display. 

“This is a song about how positive feelings can grow and how love can transform people,” Birkett said. “People are precious, and relationships are the foundation of humanity. Pure and simple, this is a love song. It’s a song that can give people hope. I’m usually writing songs about social issues or spiritual things, but this is a love song that was inspired by my wife and I think it’s an important song for right now. What most people think of love is passion and attraction, but that only lights the way to a relationship. Precious love is true love. It’s unconditional regard and concern for the welfare of another person. That’s how I define love, and that’s what I’m trying to say in this song.” 

Written and performed by Birkett, the song features some of Toronto’s finest musicians, including Bill King on keyboards, Gene Hardy on sax, Paul DeLong on drums, and background vocals from Taylor Abrahamse. The video was created by renowned director Joan Prowse.  

“Precious Love” is merely the latest of a string of hits for Birkett, who said he has even more music planned for release later this year and going into 2022. On November 11, 2019 he released his fourth album aptly titled “11:11.” But shortly after that COVID hit and the pandemic and social distancing curtailed his touring plans. He took advantage of the time available to him in the studio and put together a string of singles that he’s now ready to release. Following “Precious Love” Birkett said he’s going to drop “Wake Up,” which is more of a political song based on the ever-increasing climate crisis that will serve as a call to action for anyone who hears it.  

“My mission in life – my soul contract – is to use my skills of music composition and performing to make people feel better about themselves,” he said. “There’s so much negativity out there today – so much heartbreak and fear. I want to get people to come back to themselves with these songs and feel how wonderful they are. We’re all divine, but we don’t feel it because we’re covered by doubt and fear. I’m using the universal language of music to convey truth, and by crafting great records I’m helping people understand that truth.”
