Barbra Streisand has announced that that her 35th studio album is almost ready to go, and it will have it’s own album tour.
The new album is titled Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway and will see Barbra team up with “some of Hollywood’s biggest stars to sing Broadway classics”.
The last album from her was back in 2014, titled Partners, in which she worked with names such as Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, and John Legend. There isn’t any detailed information on who the guest list will be for the new album, but we have had previous hints from Daisy Ridley that she recorded a duet with Barbra.
This is far from Barbra’s first foray into the world of Broadway, as she did something similar way back in 1985 with The Broadway Album. This album ended up being a four time platinum record and one of her most famous releases, so it seems Barbra wants to see if this particular lightning which strike twice.
As I mentioned, the Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway album will come with it’s own nine date tour, including Los Angeles, Toronto, and her hometown of Brooklyn. For anyone interested, tickets will go on sale on May 25.
