Manilow to work nights
Barry Manilow has a new album out in March and tours the UK in May.
“‘Night Songs’ is the most intimate album I’ve ever made, just me playing the piano, bass and singing – that’s it,” said Barry.
“The songs I’ve chosen are a batch of my favourite standards, most of them not very famous, but fantastic songs by fantastic songwriters. I guess that means they’re un-standard standards?
“‘Night Songs’ reminds me of how I began. Late nights, smokey rooms, playing in bars all over New York and Chicago. I’m loving putting it together. Very sexy. Very romantic. Very ‘Paradise Cafe’, but different.”
