Cliff signs to label.. 46yrs on.

Byline: TONY JONES

CLIFF Richard is to release his latest album on the record label that turned him down more than four decades ago.

The veteran pop star failed in 1958 to sign a recording deal with Decca - which famously rejected The Beatles - but went on to become one of Britain's most successful solo singers.

The artist was later taken up by EMI and stayed with the musical company for 45 years before announcing his move to Decca.

Costa Pilavachi, president of Decca Records, said: "We may not have signed him back in 1958 but it's never too late to correct a mistake - and we're very excited to welcome Sir Cliff Richard in 2004."

Sir Cliff's new album, Something's Going On, will be released on November 1 and is his first studio CD in three years.

The 63-year-old said: "The enthusiasm and confidence which everyone feels about my new album has given me a new lease of life."
