Albert Hammond has been writing hit songs for over forty years. He is responsible for the sale of over 360 million records worldwide, over thirty chart-topping hits and multiple Golden Globe, Grammy and Oscar nominations. In 1988 he won an Emmy for the anthem One Moment In Time which he wrote for the Olympic Games.

Albert is one of very few songwriters whose songs not only have the mass appeal to become pop hits, but also the timelessness to become standards. Songs such as The Air That I Breath and When I Need You have become hits multiple times with various artists over the decades.

In the Songbook Tour, he comes to The Met playing classics from every decade of his career.
