Barry Manilow is making a return to music next month with Night Songs II, the highly anticipated follow-up to his 2014 critically acclaimed album Night Songs! In an exclusive from People, we've learned that the album's set to be released on Valentine's Day, and Manilow will once again be putting his own spin on some timeless classics.
With a tracklist boasting American standards such as "“Everything Happens to Me”, “I’m Old Fashioned”, “Meditation", “She Was Too Good to Me”, and “I Had the Craziest Dream”, Night Songs II sees the suave singer pulling out all of the stops for his musical comeback. His first single off Night Songs, "My Funny Valentine", is particularly apropos given the album's February 14th release date.
Check out the lyric video for Manilow's cover of the 1937 Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart standard here:
Barry Manilow to tour worldwide in 2020
Barry Manilow will be taking to the stage in a big way this year! Right before the release of Night Songs II, he's set to return to his award-winning Vegas residency Manilow: Las Vegas — The Hits Come Home! With a 50-date Vegas engagement planned, as well as several shows in the UK in May and June, there's quite a few opportunities to catch Manilow performing live within the first half of 2020!
Manilow's "intimate" Night Songs II
Manilow has described his upcoming album as "very intimate. Just me singing and playing piano as if I was in your living room.” It makes sense then that Night Songs II would be perfect to take on tour, as its intimacy is exactly what fans of Manilow (or "Fanilows", as they've dubbed themselves) dream of experiencing live and in person!
Night Songs II comes out on February 14th.
