When Their Majesties King Charles III & Queen Camilla are crowned at Westminster Abbey next month, the service, and pre-service music, will be exclusively recorded and released by Decca Records the very same day. The Official Album of the Coronation, to take place on Saturday 6th May 2023, will include all music and spoken word from the global event and will feature an official photograph from the day as cover art. This marks the first time ever a recording of a Coronation ceremony – a tradition which can be traced back more than 1000 years – will be available globally to stream and download on the day of the service itself, thanks to advances in modern technology. This will be an unprecedented event in both recorded music and British royal history.

The complete album, to be available digitally on the day, will be over 4 hours long. The physical version of the album (featuring the entire service and all new commissions) will then be available in stores globally from 15th May. A special Deluxe Collectors CD and vinyl will follow later in the year.
