Start spreading the news: Trisha Yearwood will release her first full-length studio album in more than 10 years with Let’s Be Frank, a collection of tune made famous by Frank Sinatra.
The album will be available on Dec. 20 via Williams-Sonoma and everywhere on Feb. 14.
“I’ve done some standards over the years in my shows, and this is a record I’ve been wanting to make for 20 years,” Trisha says. “When I got off the road and started working on a regular album, I also wanted to do this. This was just an incredible project. And I had so much fun.”
Trisha recorded Sinatra’s tracks live with a 55 piece orchestra at the iconic Capitol Records building in Hollywood using Sinatra’s microphone and sitting on the same stool where he sat while recording the originals.
“I got to sing with a 55-piece orchestra . . . live,” Trisha says. “The arranger is a legend . . . the engineers are legends . . . the producer is a legend. [And] Garth was there for every session.”
