Tina Turner - Wildest Dreams: Wikipedia Album Entry

Wildest Dreams is the ninth solo album by Tina Turner, released on Parlophone/Virgin in 1996, which went double platinum in the UK and on the European Charts.

The song "GoldenEye", recorded and released in 1995, was the theme of the James Bond film of the same name. It was written by Bono and The Edge of the Irish band U2. The song "Confidential" was written and co-produced for Turner by the British group the 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 rerelease of their album Very. "Unfinished Sympathy" is a cover of the Massive Attack song. The track "All Kinds of People" was written by Sheryl Crow and features the singer on backing vocals. Tina Turner also released a duet with Barry White called "In Your Wildest Dreams" which reached #32 in the UK, the duet version was included on the U.S. version of the album which had a different track list, released some six months after it was first issued in Europe and most other parts of the world, and then also with an alternate cover. The album also featured guest vocals from Sting on the track "On Silent Wings" which peaked at #13 in the UK. Wildest Dreams included a total of six European single releases; "GoldenEye", "Whatever You Want" - co-written and originally recorded 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.
