Trisha Yearwood’s First Album in a Decade Will Be a Collection of Frank Sinatra Covers
Trisha Yearwood is set to release her first studio album in more than a decade, and fans may be surprised at the direction she's choosing to take. Yearwood's upcoming album is titled Let’s Be Frank and will feature a collection of the singer’s favorite songs by legendary crooner Frank Sinatra.
Although this may seem an unexpected direction, Yearwood tells People that this is a project she's had in mind for quite some time.
"I’ve been wanting to make this record for 20 years," she states. "I have always loved standards, and nobody sings them better than Sinatra. I’m honored to get the chance to pay tribute to him and the songwriters in these timeless classics."
Yearwood took care to record the covers with integrity, choosing Sinatra's home base of the Capitol Records building in Hollywood as her locale, and using the iconic singer's own microphone and stool while working on the songs. For the album art above, she chose a Rat-Pack worthy fedora, collared shirt and tie.
Yearwood posted a series of photos to Instagram on Monday teasing her new project, all with the hashtag #LBF. Now we know what she's up to!
Let’s Be Frank will be available Dec. 20 exclusively at Williams-Sonoma and available everywhere in February 2019.
