Murray’s trailblazing music career is recorded in a new documentary, Anne’s Song

Murray's trailblazing music career

Key Takeaways:

  • Anne Murray’s rise to fame from small-town roots to international music stardom is being documented.
  • According to the producers, a new film based on the life of the Springhill, singer, will premiere next month, first in theatres.

“Anne Murray: Full Circle,” produced in collaboration with her record label Universal Music Canada, retraces her pioneering career with “never-before-seen footage” from Murray’s “personal archives.” Murray sold more than 55 million albums in a 40-year career, propelled by hits such as “Snowbird” and “Danny’s Song.”

She was the first Canadian female solo singer to reach No. 1 on the Billboard charts in the United States. Interviews with friends and contemporaries, including Shania Twain, k.d. lang, Bonnie Raitt, and Gordon Lightfoot, are included in the documentary.

Following the release of her 4th album, “30,” the shuffle button on Spotify is no longer the default option for album listening; instead, listeners will hear the tracks in the order they are listed.

“In our ever-changing industry, this was the only request I had!” Adele wrote on Twitter on Sunday. “We don’t make albums with such care and thought put into the tracklisting for nothing.

Taylor Swift previously chastised Spotify for its free service, claiming that artists were not paid enough royalties and withdrawing her entire catalog from the platform in 2014 – a decision she reversed in 2017.

Adele’s relationship with Spotify, on the other hand, hasn’t always been so warm. When she released her most recent album, “25,” she decided against streaming, claiming that it was “a bit disposable” and that “music should be an event.” The album was later made available for streaming.

Last month, the lead single from “30,” “Easy on Me,” broke Spotify’s record for the most-streamed song in a single day and the UK record for most streams in a single week.

“Anne Murray: Full Circle” will be shown in theatres across Canada for one night only on December 2, before its broadcast on December 17 and simultaneous streaming on CBC Gem. Morgan Elliott and Adrian Buitenhuis, who worked on “I Am Patrick Swayze” and several other celebrity-themed “I Am…” documentaries, directed the film.
