Fire It Up is the twenty-second and final studio album by English singer Joe Cocker, released in November 2012 via Columbia Records.

Known for his gritty voice, spasmodic body movement in performance and definitive versions of popular songs, Joe Cocker first rose to prominence with his cover of The Beatles' "With a Little Help from My Friends" which reached number one in the UK in 1968, and debut album of the same name, peaked at number 35 on the US Billboard 200, and earned Gold certification. This was followed up with Joe Cocker!, which reached number 11 on the US Billboard 200, and again earned Gold Certification. Joe Cocker was ranked number 97 on Rolling Stone's 100 greatest singers of all time list.

Recorded at Emblem Studios in Calabasas, California, and produced by Matt Serletic (Matchbox Twenty, Cher), Fire It Up uses a clean and tidy approach to recording: the redemptive swell of Hammond organ, a sweet soothing trill from backing vocalists, snap-crack snare drums, rootsy guitar breaks and, on occasion, jabs of well-drilled brass.

Described by the Sunday express as "a hugely listenable album that marks 50 years in the business for Joe and it's him doing his gritty soul and blues with the panache we expect and love. It's a very classy collection sung by a 68-year-old who really has still got it and "it" is among the best voices in the land".

Joe Cocker is one of "The Captain's" favourite singers and interpreter of other people's songs - on this final studio album he does an amazing version of a Ross Wilson & Rick Brewster song I Come In Peace. Other standout tracks are Fire It Up, I'll Be Your Doctor, Eye On The Prize and a Keith Urban song I'll Walk In The Sunshine Again.

The album peaked at 17 on the UK Albums chart and #5 in Germany, where he retained a huge fan base, playing 25 shows in Germany alone on his final tour promoting the album in 2013.

Check out the tracks Eye on the Prize , I Come in Peace , I'll Be Your Doctor , I'll Walk In The Sunshine Again , and Fire it Up.

This limited edition LP record is 180 gram heavyweight vinyl with a printed inner sleeve and CD album copy, pressed in Europe.
