First Smokey Has Friends, Now Streisand Has Partners!New Album Dropping In September



Well, I dismissed Smokey’s duets albums out of hand after being less than thrilled over his Cee Lo duet and am eating my words as I type  and now here comes a Barbra Streisand duet album Partners, though the one track I’ve heard, Billy Joel and Babs belting “New York State Of Mind” through the rafters, is a goodie this time so maybe the album will be a goodie as well. Even though the spoken outro sucks except alittle “Rhapsody In Blue” to close it is sweet.

So, you know, who knows?

Barbra announces new album PARTNERS coming in September

Columbia Records has announced the upcoming release of Barbra Streisand’s Partners album, available everywhere on September 16th, featuring 12 inimitable new Streisand duets with the world’s greatest male vocalists. International release dates may vary.

Barbra took to Instagram on August 11th to announce to the world the official September 16th release date for Partners. All those who pre-order the album will receive a new downloadable song “New York State Of Mind” with Billy Joel instantly with more tracks to be released in the coming weeks!

“God kissed her throat, and she’s blessed with this beautiful voice, but I think what makes people fall even more in love with her is her ability to tell a story.” – Michael Bublé

Let’s pass on the repulsive kiss the throat comment (I mean let’s pass on it now) and let’s assume Presley didn’t make it to the studio (plus: getting permission from Sony for anything Presley related is a bitch, so it probably helps that she records for Columbia) , some of this sounds like it might be of interest. Stevie and Babyface to name but two.

Let’s just pretend we didn’t see the cover picture,
