Michael Buble has announced the release of his new album To Be Loved.
Due to be released on April 15th in the UK, the album is the follow-up to Michael’s multi-platinum Christmas album. The single It’s A Beautiful Day will precede the album on 25th February.
To Be Love was produced by Bob Rock and recorded in Vancouver and Los Angeles. The album mixes four original tracks with some standards. Tracks confirmed for the album include the Bee Gees’ hit To Love Somebody, Dean Martin’s Nevertheless (I’m In Love With You), The Jackson 5’s Who’s Loving You, Jackie Wilson’s To Be Loved and Elvis’ Have I Told You Lately.
Reese Witherspoon has lent her vocals to a duet of Frank and Nancy Sinatra’s classic Something Stupid.
“My new record is about love, happiness, fun and yummy things. Getting to work with my friend and longtime collaborator Bob Rock (Call Me Irresponsible, Crazy Love and Christmas) who produced the entire album was very exciting. We’re a good team. I love the songs we selected this time out. It was also terrific working once again with my songwriting partners” commented Bublé.
Michael will be in the UK in June and July for 10 sell-out dates at The O2 Arena.
