Marion Raven reheats Meat Loaf

Nordic singer Marion Raven (formerly of girl group M2M) features on the comeback single for old Meat Loaf, who is preparing to release Bat Out Of Hell III (yes, really).

The launch single for Mr Loaf's new album is It's All Coming Back To Me Now... Yes, that title may well be familiar... Celine Dion had a hit with the song back in 1996.

This time around, Meat Loaf has covered the Jim Steinman-penned classic, and turned to Norway's Marion Raven as his duet partner. Marion Raven's had a number of European hits, mainly with songs penned by the brilliant Max Martin and Dr Luke. (This duet is unfortunately not produced by Maratone, but should at least give Marion great exposure to help kickstart an American and worldwide career).

Meat's previous two albums sold over 45 million copies around the world. Meat Loaf's new comeback album again features songs by Jim Steinman, as well as regular hitmakers like Desmond Child and Diane Warren.

(However 5 of the 7 Steinman songs are covers... Meat Loaf and Jim were involved in a court battle last year... Meat applied to have Jim's "Bat Out of Hell" trademark cancelled and given to him. The case was apparently settled out of court in June).
