Barry Manilow ‘Fifteen Minutes’ Album Out Next Summer
Barry Manilow updated fans on his blog at MySpace (@barrymanilow) on Monday (September 28), talking about Manilow.tv, his show at the Hollywood Bowl, and a couple new albums he has in the works. The veteran singer songwriter tells readers:
My “Fifteen Minutes” CD isn’t ready to release yet. As I’ve told you, it’s more guitar driven and rock oriented than I’ve ever done. Since I’m in uncharted waters, it’s taking me longer to create this one than I expected. I’m very proud of the 17 songs that Enoch Anderson and I have written. They’re emotional and edgy and they all tell a story. I think you’ll like it. However, it won’t be done until next summer.
In the meantime Clive Davis has asked that I record a CD called “Barry Manilow Sings The Greatest Love Songs Of All Time”. i know I said that I was done with recording cover albums, but getting to sing and arrange songs written by Irving Berlin, George Gershwin and Burt Bacharach was a very difficult thing to turn down. We’re nearly done with this CD and I must tell you it’s turning out to be one of the most beautiful albums I’ve ever made. It’s an honor to sing and arrange songs written by the greatest composers of all time.
Wow, Barry Manilow is coming out with an all original album and it’s going to have “guitar driven and rock orientated” music to it. Damn, I’ve been suggesting that he do one of those albums for years. Oh, well…I am thrilled to read this and wish him extreme success with this latest CD. Manilow is one the greatest entertainers of all time and I wish him the very best of luck!
Cannot wait for the new album to be released any idea what date it will be in the UK please?
Please can we have a release date for 15 minutes. I can’t wait to get another CD of Barry at his best, creating his own songs. I so hope it will be soon because this Manilet is craving some good, moving and heartfelt songs again. love ya Barry and see you May 4th.xx
Is the new album coming out summer 2011? I’m listening to “Bring on tomorrow” on YouTube for the second time in ten minutes! “Bring on your album for me and for you we hung on through dark hours long over due” (Listening to you) :) show me the sun….. “We’ll live it together, because your music is the one!” :) Jesus bless you dear one
