The album will be called 'Music... The Air That I Breathe', which will be released in the coming weeks.

As well as his milestone birthday, the album - his 46th studio album - will also mark six decades since the star shot to fame with his debut album, Cliff Sings, in 1959.

The 12 track album will feature two new songs 'Falling For You' and 'PS Please' as well as new interpretations of songs originally by Sir Cliff's favourite artists including The Beatles' 'Here Comes The Sun' and The Bee Gees' 'Too Much Heaven'. 

The legend also collaborates with  Bonnie Tyler, The Bellamy Brothers, Sheila Walsh, The Piano Guys and Albert Hammond on the track that inspired the album title The Air That I Breathe.

Sir Cliff said to Daily Mail UK: "Looking back, I remember thinking that I wouldn't make it to 50 and here I am at 80, and what's even better than that is I have a new album!"
