Just as suggested in a review posted on this site last month, "Bring Him Home" from 'Les Miserables' at The O2 by The Valjean Quartet (Colm Wilkinson, John Owen-Jones, Simon Bowman & Alfie Boe) is being released as a retail single. Alas the single is only available in the UK and in the UK's iTunes store as well.
But American fans can purchase the single as an import on amazon.comto be released on December 28, 2010. Eager American buyers can purchase the single from the amazon.co.uk site when it is released there on December 13, 2010. This single CD release will have to suffice until a Region 1/NTSC DVD or Blu-ray version is released in the United States. Unconfirmed rumor persists that a US release of the DVD is slated for a date in the first half of 2011.
Jan 2011 Update: U.S. / American / NTSC Release of Les Miserables 25th Anniversary Concert Available!

If you prefer Alfie Boe's solo version of 'Bring Him Home', then his latest CD includes the tune as the title track (to released in the UK on December 27, 2010) and will be available as an import in the US.
Note to American buyers of import singles: The price to purchase UK imports of CDs domestically is often higher than the direct exchange rate. If you prefer to purchase CDs from amazon's UK website some savings can be had even with shipping to the US than from purchasing the CD from amazon's US website.
