Wildest Dreams is the ninth solo studio album by Tina Turner, released on Parlophone/Virgin in 1996 earning double platinum certifications in the United Kingdom and in Europe.

Overview[edit]

The album includes the song "GoldenEye", the theme to the James Bond film of the same name. It was written by Bono and The Edge of the Irish band U2 and was recorded and released as a single in 1995. The song "Confidential" was written and co-produced for Turner by the British group Pet Shop Boys. The band's singer and lyricist, Neil Tennant, sings backing vocals on the track. The original Pet Shop Boys demo (with Tennant on vocals) can be found on the 2001 2-disc re-release of their album Very. "Unfinished Sympathy" is a cover of the Massive Attack song. The track "All Kinds of People" was co-written by Sheryl Crow. "In Your Wildest Dreams" was later re-recorded as a duet with Barry White and released as a single, reaching #32 in the UK Singles Chart. The duet version is included on the U.S. version of the album, which has a different track listing, released some six months after it was first issued in Europe and most other parts of the world, and features an alternate cover. The album also features guest vocals from Sting on the track "On Silent Wings" which peaked at #13 in the UK. Wildest Dreams includes a total of six European single releases; "GoldenEye", "Whatever You Want"—co-written by Taylor Dayne, "On Silent Wings", Turner's cover version of John Waite's "Missing You", "Something Beautiful Remains" and the title track "In Your Wildest Dreams".

In 1997 the album was released as a limited edition special pack in Europe with a bonus disc including remixes, non-album tracks and live recordings from Turner's concert in Amsterdam on the Wildest Dreams Tour. The two-disc edition was released with the same cover picture as the U.S. album.
