Kristin Chenoweth will release her seventh studio album For the Girls on Friday 27th September 2019.

Her most personal project to date, the album is a tribute to some of the great singers that have influenced her. For the Girls features 12 tracks including covers of Barbra Streisand (The Way We Were), Eva Cassidy (It Doesn’t Matter Anymore), Dinah Washington (What a Diff’rence A Day Made), Doris Day (When I Fall In Love), Patsy Cline (Crazy), Judy Garland (The Man That Got Away), Carole King (Will You Love Me Tomorrow), Eydie Gorme (I Wanna Be Around) and Linda Ronstadt (Desperado).

Chenoweth explains:

“I really wanted to pay homage to all the women singers who have influenced me over the years. I wanted to make something that men could also enjoy, but this is by the girls and for the girls. These songs have all stood the test of time, and most of them are songs that I grew up listening to. It was a little intimidating, because people like Judy, Barbra and Dolly are the people who made me want to be a singer in the first place. I wanted to pay homage to these women and do them proud, but I also wanted to put my own stamp on it. And I think I was able to do that.”

She is joined on the record by guest vocalists including Dolly Parton on I Will Always Love You, Ariana Grande on You Don’t Own Me, and Jennifer Hudson and Reba McEntire on I’m a Woman.

Chenoweth’s latest album follows her TV appearance as a panellist on the hit ITV show All Star Musicals alongside Elaine Paige, Kevin Clifton, Trevor Dion Nicholas and hosted by John Barrowman.
