Both upcoming projects are due this fall

Columbia Records and Legacy Recordings are pleased to announce the digital and CD release of two upcoming Barbra Streisand projects, Evergreens: Celebrating Six Decades on Columbia Records on 2 CD and 2 LP and Yentl: 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition on 2 CD and 2 LP, both available on Friday, October 27th. These releases come just days before the highly anticipated release of Barbra Streisand’s memoir, My Name is Barbra, which is available on November 7th.

Fans can get a first preview of Evergreens when Barbra’s Grammy and Oscar-winning recording of “Evergreen (Love Theme from A Star is Born)” – the 2023 mix is released as an instant grat track through all DSPs. This is a recording featuring Barbra’s classic vocals with a new arrangement. The video will follow on September 22nd.

Additionally, fans can hear the first previously unreleased track from the Yentl soundtrack, “Papa, Can You Hear Me?” on October 6th. This recording, long stored in Streisand’s music vault, is an alternate version of the Oscar-nominated song, produced by Phil Ramone and arranged by Dave Grusin.

Evergreens celebrates Streisand’s 60th anniversary as a Columbia artist. The album features 22 songs, personally selected by Barbra as some of her favorite recordings throughout her career. None of these tracks have appeared on previous Streisand compilations before. Target will offer an exclusive Evergreens on pink vinyl.

The songs chosen for Evergreens have nothing to do with statistics or certifications. Instead, they were chosen by Barbra to exemplify her emotional connection to these melodies and lyrics – each holding a special place in her heart and memory.

Evergreens: Celebrating Six Decades on Columbia Records commemorates the unparalleled career of a once-in-a-lifetime artist, who has literally conquered every entertainment medium – the nightclub, concert, Broadway, to the big screen, small screen, and of course, the recording studio.

Yentl: 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition commemorates the 40th anniversary of the release of the Oscar-winning soundtrack to Yentl and celebrates the release of the groundbreaking motion picture Yentl, which Barbra directed, wrote, produced and starred in. The Oscar-winning soundtrack to Yentl features all the songs from the original album, plus a bonus disc of previously unreleased gems from the vault.

Yentl will be offered on vinyl as a Barnes & Noble exclusive on two discs. Disc one features the original Yentl soundtrack, and disc two features 15 tracks that Barbra recorded as demos or alternate versions. The 10 demos were recorded in her living room on a stereo cassette deck, with Barbra narrating the introduction to each track. They feature Barbra accompanied only by Michel Legrand on piano.

The Yentl soundtrack is a wonder to behold. Legrand’s melodies are lush and compelling, articulating emotions that words alone cannot express. The Bergmans’ lyrics convey Yentl’s travails with wisdom, humor, and compassion. Barbra’s vocal performances are among the finest she ever committed to tape.

The living room demos featured on disc two, recorded on a stereo cassette deck, are nothing short of a revelation. Barbra’s voice, accompanied only by Legrand’s piano, is stunning. This is Streisand au naturel. Without their elaborate orchestrations, the songs are delivered with intimacy revealing their flawless construction. Like peering into the inner workings of a fine watch to study the gears, one gets a sense of how precisely the words and music are synchronized, and how Barbra imbues each with layers of meaning.

Both albums were supervised and feature extensive liner notes by Jay Landers, Streisand’s long-time A&R man and executive producer.
