Barry Manilow is to release his new album My Dream Duets on 24th November 2014.
The album is a collection of duets with Manilow’s idols and has been made possible through the wonders of modern technology. The original vocal tracks for each guest artist have been extracted from their original source recordings, allowing Manilow to re-orchestrate the arrangements, record new musical tracks, and then transport the guest vocals into vibrant new settings.
“The songs have all new arrangements and sound as if they were recorded yesterday,” said Manilow. “The album is a miracle. It’s been a huge undertaking, musically and technically. Having the opportunity to record these legendary standards with artists whom I admire so much was really a dream come true.”
The tracklisting for the album is:
1. The Song’s Gotta Come From The Heart with Jimmy Durante
2. Goody Goody with Frankie Lymon
