Unreleased Whitney Houston ‘Bodyguard’ Songs to Be Included on 25th Anniversary Edition

Sony’s Legacy Recordings, in cooperation Whitney Houston’s estate, is celebrating the 25th anniversary of “The Bodyguard” soundtrack album with the release of “Whitney Houston – I Wish You Love: More From ‘The Bodyguard’” on November 17. The album brings together a variety of live and studio recordings, many of them rare or previously unreleased.

The album includes previously unreleased live recordings from Houston’s “Bodyguard Tour” of 1993-1995; alternate versions of the audio recordings from the “The Bodyguard” film; and an alternate version of a remix of “I’m Every Woman.” The album will be available on CD and digital configurations as well as a limited edition 2LP 12″ purple vinyl edition, to be released at a later date.

More specifically, rarities include an alternate mix of “I Will Always Love You,” which features a spoken word intro of Whitney as Rachel Marron, a previously unreleased A Capella version of “Jesus Loves Me,” and a live version of the rarely performed “Run To You.” Also included are film and live versions of “I Will Always Love” You,” “I Have Nothing,” “Queen of The Night” and more.

Originally released on November 17, 1992, The Bodyguard: Original Soundtrack Album–co-executive produced by Whitney Houston and Clive Davis–was the first album verified by SoundScan to sell more than one million copies in a single week, won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year, and with more than 45 million copies sold worldwide (and a 17x Platinum certification in the U.S.), it’s and is the top-selling soundtrack album of all-time.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is celebrating the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard with the addition of previously released special features for select digital retailers on 10/31.
