Biography gathers Lisa Stansfield's biggest hits, along with several songs culled from tributes and soundtracks and others that have never been released before in the U.S. Along with definitive singles like "All Around the World," "Never, Never Gonna Give You Up," "People Hold On," and "Never Gonna Fall," the collection also features her performance of "These Are the Days of Our Lives" with George Michael and Queen from the Concert for Life tribute to Freddie Mercury and "Someday (I'm Coming Back)" from the soundtrack to The Bodyguard. Stansfield's contribution to Red Hot + Blue, "Down in the Depths," as well as "So Natural," "Let's Just Call It Love," and "Little Bit of Heaven" -- all of which make their stateside debut here -- add to the collection's balance of hits and fan favorites. The album also includes detailed liner notes with track-by-track commentary by Stansfield herself, making it a must for die-hard fans and an excellent primer for casual listeners.
