Get the Party Started is a 2007 album by Welsh singer Dame Shirley Bassey.
Released in June 2007, the album features newly remixed tracks by contemporary producers. The remixes feature recorded vocal tracks previously issued in the 1980s and '90s. "I Will Survive" was recorded in 1996 for the album The Show Must Go On but was not issued at that time. In addition, the album features new recordings including a cover version of Pink's "Get the Party Started", which fronted the 2006 Marks & Spencer Christmas advertising campaign. This track was used again in 2010 for the opening credits of the spy-spoof movie Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore.
The album project was spearheaded by Bassey and saw her working with songwriting partners Catherine Feeney and Nikki Lamborn, who co-wrote the song "The Living Tree". The album was released in the UK and Europe on 25 June 2007. It entered the UK Albums Chart at No. 6, her highest chart position for a studio album since 1970 and since 1978 overall. On 22 July 2013 it was awarded a silver disc by British Phonographic Industry (BPI). Due to the success of the digital download of the single "Get the Party Started" remixed by Chris Cox, Get the Party Started was released officially in the US on 18 March 2008 on the Decca label, making it the first album to be released there by Bassey after a long time absent.
