This successful series of intimate candlelit shows are being accompanied by the launch of the newest, and first, live album by Dr. Brian May and Kerry Ellis, very appropriately called Acoustic by Candlelight; as well as the official release of the single "The Kissing Me Song" and its full-length video, filled with kisses sent in by fans from around the world. Both, the single and the video, can be purchased through the iTunes store, only in Europe at this moment. No confirmed dates yet on when it will be available worldwide.

The album can be purchased directly at the venues, or you can order through Brian and Kelly's new on-line shop:
