A Whole New World is the fifth studio album released by Australian singer-songwriter Peter Andre, in conjunction with his then-wife Katie Price.

Background[edit]

After being dropped from East West Records, Andre began recording songs with his then current wife, Katie Price, in their private recording studio in Surrey. Andre planned to keep the songs as private recordings, and had decided to change his focus from the music industry to his family. However, several of the songs were leaked onto the internet in 2006. Andre was later contacted by Sony BMG who perceived an interest in releasing the recordings as an album. The album was officially released on November 27, 2006. The album was certified Gold in the UK, awarded for 100,000 copies of the album being shipped to stores. However, 40,000 copies were later found rotting in a barn in Hertfordshire, returned by stores after they found them impossible to sell .[2] Only the title track was released as a single from the album, on December 11, 2006. Due to poor sales and no promotion, Andre and Price were dropped from the label.[citation needed]

The album has since gained a some attention for the many five-star reviews on its Amazon.co.uk listing that, although ostensibly positive in the extreme, are largely written in a Tongue-in-cheek style. Some praise the album for its "medical" applications, satirically claiming it has cured such conditions as asthma and constipation.[3]
