Barbra Streisand is Gearing up to Release Two New Albums & a Memoir This Year
Barbra Streisand is giving her fans what they want. She has not one, but two, new albums coming out this October to celebrate a few very special milestones in her impressive career. The albums are titled Evergreens: Celebrating Six Decades on Columbia Records and Yentl: 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition. Evergreens features a whopping 22 tracks hand-picked by Streisand representing her 60-year career with Columbia Records. She chose many of her favorite songs for the album, not necessarily the ones that were the most popular.
The Yentl re-release album will feature the soundtrack from her movie of the same name as well as an additional disc of living room demos. Each song includes a spoken intro from Streisand when she worked with composer Michel Legrand, who plays the piano for the tracks. It will also include a previously unreleased track called “Papa, Can You Hear Me?”
Both albums are now available for pre-order and will be released on Oct. 27 on all streaming services. In addition, Evergreens will be exclusively sold at Target on vinyl, printed on pink discs. Yentl will be exclusively sold by Barnes & Noble on vinyl. She said about the albums, “My new albums are coming out October 27th. Evergreens and Yentl both hold a special place in my heart, representing fulfilling and cherished moments in my career. Putting these albums together has been a labor of love, and I’m delighted for fans to experience them in new and exciting ways.”
In case you’re Streisand’s biggest fan and two new albums don’t satisfy you, she is also releasing her new memoir days later on Nov. 7. “My Name Is Barbra,” which tells the story of her life and career in her own words. Fans can get a glimpse into her personal story from growing up in Brooklyn to her breakout performance in Funny Girl. The EGOT winner will share some of her struggles and open up about famous friendships with Marlon Brando and more. Streisand will also talk about her marriage to actor James Brolin.
