In conjunction with her Dressed To Kill Tour kicking off in Phoenix March 22, Cher and Tracey Young have joined forced to create the “I Walk Alone Tracey Young Remix”.
“I Walk Alone” is the third club single from Cher’s “Closer to the Truth” album which has been criticized heavily for poor promotions from Warner Bros. Young — who has provided official remixes for everyone from Madonna to Britney Spears — also remixed Cher’s “Woman’s World.”
“I was instantly excited to start this project for three reasons,” Young tells Billboard. “One, stating the obvious, working with Cher again. Secondly, I relate to this song lyrically because it echoes where I am at this moment in my life. Lastly, it was so refreshing because I felt this song is in a perfect tempo and it’s also one of my favorites on the album.”
While “I Walk Alone” is Cher’s newest single for clubs, she continues to scale Billboard’s Adult Contemporary airplay chart with the ballad “I Hope You Find It,” another track from “Closer to the Truth.” The song rises 24-20 on the March 22-dated Adult Contemporary chart — her highest-charting solo AC hit since “Song for the Lonely” reached No. 11 in 2002.
