Annie Lennox to release 'Nostalgia' October 21 in the US

Annie Lennox will release new album in October-slide0
Island Records (used under fair use doctrine)

One of the most successful pop acts in history, Annie Lennox, will be releasing a new record in October titled Nostalgia. The singer-songwriter took to her blog to personally announce the release of her seventh studio album to be released October 21 in the U.S. and October 27 for the rest of the world.

The songs on the upcoming record are from the Great American Songbook and include several classic favourites such as “Summertime,” “I Put A Spell on You” and “Georgia on My Mind.” The songs are mostly from the 30s and 40s and made famous by other artists through the decades.

Lennox took some time to get to know the songs, “becoming friends with them” to connect and see how her voice would work with the twelve songs featured on the set. Annie embraced the challenge and worked with longtime collaborator Mike Stevens. The music on the record is mostly played by Lennox and was recorded in Stevens’ West London studio.

Nostalgia will first be released on vinyl, earlier than the planned release date. In the U.S. only, the set will be released on September 30 and worldwide in October. A perfect compliment to the title is sure to be a hit with her biggest fans putting the old songs on a record player.

Annie Lennox is one of the world’s most successful artists, selling well over 80 million records worldwide including her work as part of the Eurhythmics in the 80s. She began her solo career in 1992 when she released Diva under RCA Records. Her last non-holiday or compilation record Songs of Mass Destruction was released in 2007 and peaked in the top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart.
