Call Me:
“I have always been a huge fan of Blondie and thought Debbie Harry was electrifying. We tried to infuse that same energy and drive into our swing version of their classic song.”

Who’s That Girl:
“It was so inspiring to rediscover the incredible talent and amazing voice of Annie Lennox when considering the perfect Eurythmics track to cover. We felt a bossa nova rendition of this great song would make an intriguing choice.”

Happy Ever After:
“So much has changed in the world since the first recording of this song and we wanted to reflect this with a World Music vibe infused into the groove. Originally it was simply a love song about ‘being happy ever after.’ Seeing a piece on TV about apartheid in South Africa and Nelson Mandela, the lyric took on a different dimension for me. In the new middle section, we reflect upon the current humanitarian crises and suffering affecting people in northern Africa and Syria.”

I’m Not In Love:
“When I was a teenager, my parents reluctantly agreed to let me go to a disco. Just as well they did, because when the ‘slow song’ came on, it was this timeless gem from 10cc. I was mesmerized by the production, arrangement and sheer beauty of the melody and clever lyric, and was influenced by every component of it for years to come.”

Alone Again (Naturally):
“While researching each song we ultimately selected for the album, I was so surprised to read that Gilbert O’Sullivan had made the whole thing up. His vocals and delivery were so convincing on the original, I felt sure he had been personally stood up at the altar, his father had died and his mother cried. I tried to apply the same effortless conviction to my delivery of his moving and compelling tale.”

“An outstanding song from one of my favorite artists. Sting is such an exceptional all-rounder. His voice, songs and standard of musicianship are inspirational. Dominic Miller, the guitarist on my Porcelain album, has worked with Sting for 20 years. We were honored to have Latin Jazz guitarist extraordinaire Ramon Stagnaro play the signature theme when we recorded this live in the studio.”

Like You Used To Do:
“I had this brand new song that had a jazz feel and we felt it went well with our other selections. Along with the sensational singer songwriter Judith Owen, the fabulous Sista Jean McClain, who was featured on “Hope, Prayer & Time” (a song on my 4th album Falling Forward), added sizzling background vocals to this track and 3 others.

Eleanor Rigby:
“Every Beatles song is a perfect classic. We considered many options, but the combination of such moving words and melody made this our final pick.”

The Morning After (The Night With You):
“We really did have the dream team for this album, including a killer rhythm section, Herman Matthews on drums and David Piltch on upright bass. They had just returned the day before from a world tour with Hugh Laurie and were on fire. We also had the brilliant guitarist Ramon Stagnaro, who has played with Andrea Bocelli, and Latin Jazz groove-master, Ray Yslas, who has played with Santana, on percussion. It was a real thrill to have the guys add their magic to my new song.”

At Seventeen:
“Janis Ian. Wow. She is one of the leading ladies of the singer-songwriter genre. I remember being moved to tears when I first heard this song and I’ve been a huge fan ever since. This is yet another illustration of her winning and spot-on combination of exquisite melody and lyrics.”

Sir Duke:
“Incredibly, our phenomenal trumpet player, Harry Kim, was in the original live band that toured the Songs In The Key of Life album with Stevie Wonder. In the studio, he shared an incredible story about his audition. While in a room alongside eight other trumpet players, Stevie played the iconic theme of ‘Sir Duke’ and challenged the hopefuls. The first musician to play it back perfectly would get the job. Harry was that man. Now, all these years later, he has performed it again on our version. We felt this coincidence was a real blessing on our project.”

Moon River:
“When I was a kid getting ready for school, this is the tune my dad would sing on a loop while shaving in the shower. I am so happy he is still alive to hear my version and that he loved it. We also wanted to capture something for the album that was reminiscent of our live set and this track features our stellar guitarist, Colin Ryan, weaving a subtle dance around Grant’s beautiful piano.”
