For his latest release, Burt Bacharach has teamed up with Irish vocalist Ronan Keating for a newly recorded collection of his classic compositions. Burt and Ronan recorded the album live in the legendary Capitol Records studio with a 95-piece orchestra.
The CD was released in the U.K. on March 21 and will be released in the U.S. on March 29.
“To do these songs with a different slant and approach on them made it very interesting for me,” Bacharach said of the process. “And too be able to work with Ronan and expose these songs to maybe a younger audience as well as my fan base. Then to be able to record it in the legendary Capitol recording studio – full orchestra live. Quite a trip we were on, Ronan.”
Keating takes on 10 Bacharach classics on the album, including “The Look Of Love,” “Walk On By,” “I’ll Never Fall In Love Again,” “Arthur’s Theme (The Best That You Can Do),” “My Little Red Book,” “What The World Needs Now,” “Something Big,” “I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself,” “This House Is Empty Now,” and “Make It Easy On Yourself.”
