About this deal

SPARK OF LIGHT is the forthcoming album of original music co-written by Michael Bolton in almost 15 years. SPARK OF LIGHT is the forthcoming album of original music co-written by Michael Bolton, his first in almost 15 years. It was a little scary, because I was definitely crossing some lines — but as long as it’s funny and musical, I’m up for taking a close look at it. This documentary brought me to the pure love of music, and I was just felt filled with what felt like fresh hunger, deep hunger, creatively,” he says.

Celebrating his 50 th year of making music, Bolton found himself completely revitalized while making his first album of original material in 14 years, his first since 2009’s One World One Love. The most recent single "Spark of Light" released alongside Bolton's performance on Fox's hit TV show The Masked Singer. Once he saw his fans were eager to see that side of Bolton, he embraced it and jumped into projects including 2017’s Netflix special, Michael Bolton’s Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special; co-hosting The Celebrity Dating Game in 2021 and appearing on The Masked Singer, most recently earlier this year as The Wolf. Through the rest of the year, Bolton has a number of live dates, but he’s selective about where he and his bandmates, many of whom have been with him for 20 years or more, play.It’s something that I never thought I would consider and I’m thinking if the right offer came along would I consider it? Bolton’s career reached a new plateau more than a decade ago, when he joined forces with comedy trio The Lonely Island for a Saturday Night Live digital short on 2011’s “Jack Sparrow. The good news is I’m so happy with so much of the album that when doing the promotion — which really can get very taxing — it’s great to love the body of work. Next for Bolton is a holiday album, as well as a scripted podcast ( Michael Bolton’s Big Sexy Podcast) which reunites him with The Lonely Island’s Akiva Schaffer. Part of the positive energy on Spark of Light, released on Bolton’s own Montaigne Records, comes from the double Grammy-winner working with a new set of collaborators whom he found deeply inspiring.

Christina would come to me and say, ‘I have four or five people you could have sessions with next week.

Not that Bolton has been dormant: he’s released five sets in between, including a tribute to the songs of Motown, a collection of duets and a reinvention of his biggest hits with a symphony orchestra. Part of that reflection came from an old friend: During the pandemic and as he was writing for this album, he watched a documentary on Luciano Pavarotti and was transported back to when he first performed “Nessun Dorma” with the opera legend in 1995 and had embarked on a study of all the great tenors.
