Jazz pianist/singer extraordinaire Diana Krall has announced that she has new album set for release this fall.
Wallflower features the star teaming up with Grammy-adored producer David Foster for a studio full-length that will showcase Krall’s interpretations of “some of the greatest pop songs of all time.”; The album will include Krall’s take on songs like The Eagles’ “Desperado”;, Elton John’s “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word”;, and Harry Nilsson’s “Everybody’s Talkin'”;.
“The songs Diana performs on this album are the ones she grew up hearing on the radio and listening to on vinyl,”; explains Foster in the announcement’s accompanying press material. “What makes this album so special is the way Diana re-imagines each tune and the way she puts her heart and soul into every syllable.”;
The upcoming album is also slated to feature a Bob Dylan cover, as well as a new composition from Paul McCartney. Sadly, there’s nothing at the moment that suggests Krall will do any Wallflowers covers on Wallflower.
Wallflower is scheduled to be released on September 9.
