LOS ANGELES, CA – June 18, 2014 -- Five-time Grammy Award-winning jazz
pianist and singer Diana Krall will release her new studio album on
Verve Records on September 9.  The new release is entitled “Wallflower”
and is a collection of songs from the late 60’s to present day that
inspired Krall in her early years.  Produced by 16-time Grammy®
Award-winning producer David Foster, the album finds Krall breaking new
ground with her interpretations of some of the greatest pop songs of all
time.   


"It was a nice change for me to be in the vocal booth with pretty much
only David's superb piano accompaniment and orchestrations," said Diana
Krall.

 

Diana Krall’s unique artistry has not only made her one of the most
recognizable artists of modern jazz but it has also transcended any one
particular style of music.  Krall has sold more albums than any other
female jazz artist in the last 30 years, establishing herself as one of
the best-selling artists of her generation.  The new album is the next
chapter in her incredible songbook, bringing her signature style to some
of the greatest songs of our time, including The Eagles’ “Desperado,”
The Mamas & The Papas’ “California Dreamin,” Elton John’s, “Sorry Seems
To Be The Hardest Word,” and Harry Nilsson’s “Everybody’s Talkin’,”
amongst others.

 
“The songs Diana performs on this album are the ones she grew up hearing
on the radio and listening to on vinyl” said David Foster.  “What makes
this album so special is the way Diana re-imagines each tune and the way
she puts her heart and soul into every syllable.”


The new album marks Krall’s first studio effort since 2012's "Glad Rag
Doll," produced by T Bone Burnett, which debuted at No. 6 on the
Billboard 200 and at No. 1 on the Jazz Albums chart.  Diana Krall is the
only jazz singer to have eight albums debut at the top of the Billboard
Jazz Albums chart. To date, she has won five Grammy®  Awards, eight
Juno®  Awards and has also earned nine gold, three platinum and seven
multi-platinum albums.
