Diana Krall will release a new studio album of reinterpreted classic pop songs this fall. The multi-Grammy and Juno winner singer will release her 12th studio album titled Wallflower on Sept. 9.

According to an news release posted June 18 at her official website, the Canadian jazz chanteuse's first foray into traditional pop will be released on Verve Records and include songs which inspired the artist in her youth. Produced by 16-time Grammy winner David Foster, Wallflower will include songs by Bob Dylan, The Eagles, Elton John, The Mamas and The Papas and a brand new composition by Paul McCartney.

The previously unrecorded song by the ex-Beatle is as an outtake from his 2012 "Kisses on the Bottom" album, a collection of trad-pop and jazz songs that Krall helped arrange. The 47-year-old Nanaimo, BC native a.k.a. Mrs. Elvis Costello asked Sir Paul for permission to use the song and he said "Sure!"

Krall demoed a total of 18 songs in preparation for Wallflower. Tracks on the album include: The Eagles’ “Desperado," The Mamas and The Papas’ “California Dreamin,” Elton John’s, “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word,” and Harry Nilsson’s “Everybody’s Talkin’” among others. Fans can pre-order the album at Amazon.

The upcoming release is Krall’s first studio effort since 2012's "Glad Rag Doll." Produced by T Bone Burnett, "Doll" debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 and at No. 1 on the Jazz Albums chart.

Diana Krall has a couple of upcoming festival appearances this summer, which include June 20 in Snowmass, Colo. at Jazz Aspen Snowmass and June 29 in Montreal at Festival International De Jazz De Montreal. For more information, check out
