Seth MacFarlane once again dips into the Great American Songbook with Great Songs From Stage and Screen, coming Aug. 28 via Republic Records/Verve Records.
The crooner’s five previous studio albums have earned him three Grammy nominations for best traditional pop vocal album and all landed within the top 10 on Billboard’s Traditional Jazz Albums chart.
Like a number of his past efforts, the new album is a reimagining of songs by some of America’s most revered composers, including Rodgers and Hammerstein, Cole Porter, Lerner & Loewe and Henry Mancini. The lead track from the set is the James Van Heusen and Sammy Cahn gem “Let’s Not Be Sensible.”
The Family Guy creator and American Dad! co-creator, director and actor turned to songs that fans may not be as familiar with for his latest collection. “A ‘standard’ always implies a song of specific distinction, or one that’s been performed countless times by many different artists,” he tells Billboard. “To me, the real challenge and reward comes from digging beyond those tunes, and looking for lesser-known, untouched gems from the great composers and lyricists that may have fallen through the cracks for one reason or another. Those are the songs that are the most fun to record, and that well is almost bottomless.”
