Tony Bennett has announced the release of his latest collection of singles.
A week before Valentine’s Day, on February 7, the singer is set to release ‘Isn’t It Romantic?’; a collection of his most popular romantic singles over the years.
From relaxed renditions of ‘Fly me to the Moon’, to modern takes on standards like ‘Body and Soul’, the crooner’s romantic singles have been amongst the most popular of his illustrious 63 year musical career.
Featuring timeless classics like ‘Make Someone Happy’ and ‘As Time Goes By’, many of the tracks from the collection come from Bennett’s 1970’s collaborations with pianist Bill Evans, including the pair’s 1975 duo album ‘Fantasy’.
Born in 1926, 85-year-old Bennett first found success in 1951 after his ballad ‘Because of You’ hit the top of the charts in 1951, selling over a million copies. In a career that has spanned over six decades, Bennett has earned more than a dozen Grammy Awards and remains a respected figure in American music.
Bennett was one of the last people to work in studio with Amy Winehouse, covering Jazz standard ‘Body and Soul’ before her untimely death in 2011.
