Album available December 20th
Trisha Yearwood is releasing her full length album in more than a decade on December 20th called Let’s Be Frank, a Frank Sinatra tribute album. The project will be available exclusively at Williams-Sonoma and available everywhere in February next year.
“I’ve been wanting to make this record for 20 years!” Yearwood tells PEOPLE, who were the first to break the news. “I have always loved standards, and nobody sings them better than Sinatra. I’m honored to get the chance to pay tribute to him and the songwriters in these timeless classics.”
Yearwood recorded the album consisting of her favorite Sinatra songs with an orchestra at the iconic Capitol Records building in Hollywood with the same microphone and stool Sinatra used when recording the originals. A track listing is forthcoming.
Yearwood teased fans earlier this week by posting parts of the cover art, featuring the 54-year-old singer dressed similar to Sinatra with a suit and tie, on Instagram with #FBL. Husband Garth Brooks even teased the announcement on his Facebook Live series, Inside Studio G on Monday.
More details are expected during her weekly Facebook Live series, T’s Coffee Talk, on Saturday morning (Nov 10th).
Yearwood’s last album was 2014’s Prize Fighter: Hit After Hit featuring six new songs and ten of her classic hits. Her last full length album was 2007’s Heaven, Heartache and the Power of Love.
