SQUEAL: Bette Midler Putting Out a New Album
Billboard has the scoop on Bette Midler’s new album—the first the diva has recorded since 2006.
For her first studio album in eight years, Bette Midler is revisiting some of the vocalists who shaped her the most—girl groups—on It’s The Girls, due November 4tth via Warner Bros. Records.
The album spans seven decades of famous girl groups, from ‘30s trios The Boswell Sisters and The Andrews Sisters (“Bei Mir Bist Du Schön”) to ‘90s R&B legends TLC (wait til you hear Midler’s cabaret take on “Waterfalls.”)
Evidently, the Divine Miss M is planning to take it on the road, too:
Though she’s teased retirement from the road over the years, a new tour is in the works, too, a spokeswoman for Midler teases.
Fingers crossed she comes near Philly. More from Billboard, including the full track list here.
