Barbra Streisand’s ‘Encore’, Featuring Your Favorite Film Stars, Is Now Streaming: Listen
Icon Barbra Streisand‘s new album, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway (out August 26) is now available to stream on NPR. Each track is a duet with a film star (or a trio, in one case, with Daisy Ridley and Anne Hathaway). Some of Babs’ guests include Hugh Jackman (swoon), Melissa McCarthy (SWOON), Jamie Foxx, Seth McFarlane and Chris Pine.
Encore is comprised of a mix of classic Broadway songs paired with modern movie A-listers, including tracks ranging from The Sound Of Music‘s “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” to “Pure Imagination” from Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory.
Encore is reminiscent of the performances many people tune into awards shows for, sans the cringe-worthy banter and, well, the awards. (Side note: NPR reports that Target will be carrying a special edition version of the album, which will will include four solo-Streisand tunes.)
