Sony Music are proud to announce 'Here You Are: The Best of Billy Ocean,' a 2CD set featuring a personal collection of Billy's interpretations of songs which helped the young Leslie Charles become the Billy Ocean we all know today, alongside a career spanning celebration of his biggest hits.
The album includes a massive 31 hits and coincides with the 30th anniversary of "When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going," which hit the number one spot for four consecutive weeks in the UK on its release in 1986.
Disc one features a personally curated selection of tracks covered by Billy Ocean, chosen for their influence on him both musically and in his personal life. Billy lends his soulful voice to such classics such as "No Woman No Cry," "A Change is Gonna Come" and "High Tide Low Tide" among many other exemplary interpretations.
