Pop dynamo Kyle Bielfield will release his debut album ‘Manhattan’ early in the new year.
But while readers of fine site may know him for his more pop-orientated releases like ‘Boom And Bust’, ‘Frequency’ and ‘Kings & Queens’, this debut album of his will showcase another side to his talent.
Named in tribute to New York City (where he trained at the prestigious Julliard School), the album brings together a range of cover versions of tracks from throughout history.
From the opener (a cover of Michael Jackson’s ‘Human Nature’) to a retake on Toto’s classic ‘Africa’… even a reworking of the recent number one single ‘Despacito’, there’s something for everyone.
“This album helps bring together what I’ve been showing over the past few years”, Kyle explains. “I’ve done the pop career, I’ve earned my stripes on stage and this is now about arriving as a fully formed artist.”
Lead single ‘Audition (The Fools Who Dream)’, a gorgeous cover of a track from ‘La La Land’, is available now.
“‘Manhattan’ is for fans of music, people who enjoy good songs, performed well,” Kyle reveals. “You should listen to this album as the sun’s setting and you’re unwinding with a cocktail.”
‘Manhattan’ will be released on Friday February 16.
