Pete Waterman – everyone’s favourite Hit Man (anyone?) – is planning an album of orchestral reworks of songs he has produced over the years, it was revealed earlier this week. So, that’s a thing.

Inspired by reworks of his hits at an ‘evening with’ type event at the Royal Festival Hall earlier this year, the orchestral album will follow a more conventional compilation of singles produced by Waterman and his former co-horts Mike Stock and Matt Aitken, which is out next month.

Waterman is still working out what songs will appear on the orchestral record, though he reckons that less well known Kylie track ‘Turn It Into Love’, which appeared on her debut album, will be among the reworks. “Even though it was a B-side on Kylie’s first album, it had a life of its own”, Waterman told Attitude. “And it was a massive hit in Japan and was covered by a girl band out there”.
