Yummy things for Michael Bublé
“My new record is about love, happiness, fun and yummy things. Getting to work with my friend and long-time collaborator Bob Rock (“Call Me Irresponsible”, “Crazy Love” and “Christmas”) who produced the entire album was very exciting. We’re a good team. I love the songs we selected this time out. It was also terrific working once again with my song writing partners” explains crooner Michael Bublé about his new release, To Be Loved. The CD is set for release on 15 April. The first single, “It’s A Beautiful Day” is digitally available. “To Be Loved”, Michael’s sixth studio album follows his “Christmas” CD which sold seven million copies internationally and was the number two biggest selling album of 2011 (after Adele). “To Be Loved” produced by Bob Rock was recorded in Vancouver and Los Angeles and includes a mix of standards as well as four original songs all co-written by Michael. “After All” one of the four originals was co-written and performed by fellow Canadian Bryan Adams. The new album also includes hits previously recorded by some of Michael’s musical heroes including the Bee Gees hit “To Love Somebody”, Dean Martin’s “Nevertheless (I’m In Love With You”), the Jackson 5 early ‘70’s smash “Who’s Loving You”, Jackie Wilson’s “To Be Loved” and the Elvis Presley classic “Have I Told You Lately”. Michael is joined by actress Reese Witherspoon on the classic Frank and Nancy Sinatra duet “Something Stupid”.
