New Single Or Surprise Album? Barbra Streisand Is Releasing *Something* Tomorrow
EDIT: It’s a new single! Barbra unleashed the magnificent “Don’t Lie To Me” this morning and it’s the great diva’s most topical release in years. She also confirmed Walls (due November 2) as her new album title. Pre-order it here and stream her new anthem below.
Barbra Streisand is up to something! “Set your alarms for 6:15 am ET tomorrow,” the living legend tweeted along with a glamorous new promo picture and the hashtag #BarbraWalls. That led to speculation that her 36th LP, presumably called Walls, could get a very modern surprise release à la Beyoncé or Eminem. More likely, in my opinion, is the arrival of the album’s lead single. The evergreen 76-year-old has already shared a snippet of “Don’t Lie To Me” and it sounds like one of her most current pop offerings in years.
At one point, Walls was going to be called What’s On My Mind and was said to be heavily inspired by Donald Trump’s presidency. Whatever Barbra has in store for us, her new album is destined to be a mega-seller. She already holds the record for having the most number one albums by a female artist (11 over six decades) and is destined to add to that number given her loyal fanbase and impeccable ear for quality. See the enduring hitmaker’s announcement below as well as a preview of her new music. I’m ready to be slayed!
