Music Career

1990–1998: Peter Andre, Natural and Time

On the Australian television talent show New Faces in 1990 and in 1992 he was signed to a record company and released his debut song "Gimme Little Sign" which reached at number 3 and lasted for about 31 weeks on the official ARIA Charts. In 1993, a self-titled album charted well in Australia, while the singles "Funky Junky" and "Let's Get It On/Do You Wanna Dance?" reached the Australian Top 20, and "To The Top" provided an additional Top 50 performance. In 1993, "Gimme Little Sign" picked up an ARIA Award as the highest selling single of the year. Andre first had a top 50 single in the United Kingdom called "Only One", which reached number 16 and then gained further success with the song "Mysterious Girl" (featuring Bubbler Ranx), which reached number 2 in the U.K. singles chart and number 8 in Australia.

He then had a number 1 album Natural and two U.K. number 1 singles "Flava" and "I Feel You". However, after a series of unsuccessful performances his success waned, with his second album Time only reaching number 28. In 1998 he released his last single (a cover of the song "Kiss the Girl" from Disney's The Little Mermaid) before being dropped by his record company and taking a long break from his music career. He also appeared on the Childliners record The Gift Of Christmas and in the following years he spent some time in Cyprus.

2004–2007: The Long Road Back and A Whole New World

He returned to the British media with a stint on the British reality TV series I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!; during which he met, fell in love with and subsequently married former glamour model Katie Price. Capitalising on his resurgent popularity and a wave of generational nostalgia, he re-released his hit song "Mysterious Girl" in 2004, the single finally reaching number 1, eight years after it was originally release in 1995 which reached number number 2 on the charts.

This marked six years since his last chart appearance. He released a follow-up song, "Insania", which reached number 3 in the United Kingdom in June 2004. A follow-up album entitled The Long Road Back was also released that month but only reached #44. The next single from the album was "The Right Way" and featured wife, Katie Price in the video. This reached number 14 in September 2004.

Andre and former wife Katie Price released a duet album, A Whole New World, on 27 November 2006. It was Price's first time in the music industry. The album consisted largely of cover versions and finally peaked in the U.K. at number 20. The album was followed by a single, "A Whole New World", on 14 December 2006. This did not have much chart success and reached number 28.

2008–present: Revelation

In 2008, Andre began working on his new album, Revelation, which was released on 14 September 2009. The first single, "Behind Closed Doors", was released in August 2009 and peaked at number 4 in the Official Top 40 U.K. charts. Many of the songs focus on his divorce with former wife Katie Price. He will embark on a Sold Out UK Tour with former X Factor Finalist Laura White. Despite the album reaching the top five, only one single managed to chart, the second failing badly.
