"The Best Of... The Great American Songbook" presents the highlights from five albums, recorded across eight years, which have become nothing less than a musical and cultural phenomenon. In addition, this new "Songbook" collection features one, newly recorded, never before released track "You'll Never Know," produced by one of Rod's longtime collaborators Richard Perry, along with brand new mixes of "Someone To Watch Over Me" and "Bye Bye Blackbird."
Long celebrated for his expressive, distinctively raspy voice, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Living Legend Rod Stewart is widely regarded as having one of the most interpretive voices in music. "The Best Of... The Great American Songbook" celebrates the unprecedented success of the 5 volume series, which is the biggest-selling ongoing series of new music recordings in history with over 18 million copies sold worldwide.
Rod infuses his incomparable vocal style into iconic standards written by Rodgers and Hart, George and Ira Gershwin, and many other great composers and lyricists, including "Someone To Watch Over Me," "The Way You Look Tonight," "They Can't Take That Away From Me," "What A Wonderful World" featuring Stevie Wonder, and many, many more.
Clive Davis, Chief Creative Officer, Sony Music Entertainment and a producer of Rod's Songbook series reflects: "In a transient, ephemeral business, it is so gratifying to have the dual opportunity to show how long a career can last, and how these songs have a life into a new century."
