Self Esteem – AKA Rebecca Lucy Taylor – and Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears have announced their new EP Cabaret: the Maida Vale Session.

The release comes in celebration of their time in the multiple Olivier Award-winning production of Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club in London's West End. The EP sees the pair, the cast, and the orchestra revisit a selection of their favourite numbers from the show for an hour-long special at London’s legendary Maida Vale studios for BBC Radio 2 in December, including songs such as "Willkommen", "Don’t Tell Mama", "I Don’t Care Much" and "Cabaret".

“I’ve made no secret about how much I’ve loved being Sally for the last 6 months. The cast, Jake, everyone involved in making this incredible show exist have a piece of my heart forever. I am so glad a little bit of this experience gets to live on in these very special recordings," Taylor shares. “It’s been a true pleasure starring alongside Rebecca during our time in Cabaret, and we had such a special time performing these songs at Maida Vale together along with the cast and orchestra last year and I’m so glad we can treasure them forever now. Willkommen! Bienvenue… and enjoy!”, adds Shears.

Cabaret: the Maida Vale Session will be released on Friday 8 March via Polydor, and is available to pre-order now.
