Barry Manilow To Premiere New Album on TV
During this special QVC Presents QSessions Live broadcast, the Grammy, Tony, and Emmy Award-winning artist will perform a selection of songs from the all-new album while offering viewers an inside look at the inspiration behind the collection.
Fans will also have the opportunity to purchase 15 MINUTES more than two weeks before street date. Especially for QVC, 15 MINUTES has been packaged with a bonus CD of four previously unreleased tracks.
"I am thrilled to share my music with QVC shoppers once again," said Manilow. "15 MINUTES is the result of a project that took more than two years to create and one that is very close to my heart."
After recording six critically acclaimed albums of songs written by other songwriters, 15 MINUTES is a compilation of 16 original tracks written by Manilow and lyricist Enoch Anderson. The new album explores the perils and pinnacles of fame's double-edged sword and was inspired by Andy Warhol's quote: "In the future, everybody will be world famous for 15 minutes." Making a guest appearance on 15 MINUTES is young Nataly Dawn, lead singer of the white-hot group "Pomplamoose." Her rendition of "Letter From A Fan" is both innocent and eerie.
Manilow is no stranger to QVC. His 2006 QVC appearance marked the highest single-day sales by a musical artist in QVC history, and he also continues to hold the record as the highest single-hour music sales event in QVC's 24 years.
