UK soul/pop legend and ‘The Voice Australia’ coach Seal will release a new covers collection of ‘Standards’ in November.
To drop in both standard and deluxe editions, the singer’s tenth studio album features covers of iconic jazz/swing classics from yesteryear.
“This is the album I have always wanted to make,” Seal enthuses. “I grew up listening to music from the Rat Pack era, so recording these timeless tunes was a lifelong dream.
“It was a true honour to collaborate with the same musicians who performed with Frank Sinatra and so many of my favourite artists, in the very same studios where the magic was first made – it was one of the greatest days of my recording career.”
The deluxe edition (tracklist below) features three extra songs, including festive season favourites ‘Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow’ and ‘The Christmas Song’.
It’s out on Friday November 10.
