International jazz sensation Diana Krall has a brand new album to add to her sparkling résumé. The Nanaimo-born singer/pianist’s latest full length Wallflower has arrived in stores and Diana sat down with our Natasha Gargiulo to discuss this latest release.
“I started making the record in April while I was on tour with (her 2012 album) Glad Rag Doll,”; Diana told ET Canada. “So I was taking time in between tour to go to L.A., so it was a lot of… probably a lot more work than I realized to be on tour and make a record.”;
Wallflower boasts having superstar producer David Foster’s fingerprints on the project, which makes sense considering he’s also her label boss. Diana says that the album, which is comprised of covers of songs made famous by the likes of the Eagles and Elton John, has a certain flair to it.
“We made it very much like you would do a pop record and I wanted to do that,”; said the multiple Grammy winner.
Diana also opened up to us about how she was understandably devastated following the passing of her father in December.
“I can talk about it now without completely falling apart,”; she said. “It has to be acknowledged, it was such an important part of my life. I’ve always spoken about my dad. I’ve always talked about his influence on me.”;
Getting back to music is something Diana says is important for her well-being.
“It’s been a tough year,”; said the popular recording artist. “That’s why it’s really good for me to get going and talk about the music and play music.”;
