About the album

Swimming Over London is a new studio-album of jazz-inspired hits and recent commissions performed by The King’s Singers, and is a follow up to their Grammy Award-winning crossover album Simple Gifts

This album covers a huge range of pop and jazz-inspired influences – from old favourites (Nat King Cole’s Straighten up and fly right, Arlen & Gershwin’s It’s a New World and Hogey Carmichael’s Lazy Bones) to modern hits (Michael Bublé’s Home, Jason Mraz’s I’m Yours and Imogen Heaps Hide and Seek). Commissions especially for the album come from Bob Chilcott, Mia Makaroff, Ysaye M. Barnwell and Roger Treece.

A special King’s Singers arrangement of Mika’s By the time is also featured, inspired by their performance with him for the 2009 Mencap Little Noise sessions at the Union Chapel.

“They are always breathtakingly impressive in their vocal virtuosity, blend and pinpoint intonation.” 
American Record Guide

“They are still unmatched for their sheer musicality and ability to entertain.” 
The Times

“...a musical group of the very highest order.”
