It’s been a long time since The Go-Go’s Belinda Carlisle has had a hit. It took a new song from smash hit writer Diane Warren to do the job.
Now “Big Big Love” is number 1 in the UK on Radio 2. It’s starting to crossover to the US thanks to BMG and Warren’s label there, RAF/BMG.
Duke Mason — son of Belinda and husband Morgan Mason (whose dad was the legendary Hollywood star James Mason) was the catalyst for reuniting his Mom and songwriter Diane Warren after 35 years. The duo first worked together for the hit song “I Get Weak.”
“Big Big Love” is part of an upcoming Carlisle EP of five Warren penned songs called “Kismet” At a recent listening party for the EP Warren told us how the two reunited. “I had just written “Big Big Love” and didn’t know what I was going to do with it. Belinda’s son, Duke, came up and introduced himself to me. I told him to get his mother on the phone right then and there, he did, she came in and loved the song so we did it.” Carlisle chimed in, “Kismet. Meant to be.The whole thing was such a series of coincidences. It was like we just worked together yesterday, it was so comfortable.”
Warren added that “Belinda is so talented, and so deserving. She crushes this song, and the others. Everything was so easy. Belinda is better than ever right now, she’s always been great and she’s still at the top of her game.” The single is produced by Mati Gavriel.
