Barry Manilow Surprises Fans With Night Songs Album

Barry Manilow surprised fans last week when he released a new studio album entitled "Night Songs" where he performs stripped-down versions of 16 standards from some of the most renowned 20th century composers.

The album features Manilow singing the songs along with the only instrumentation coming from his piano and synthesized bass. "I loved making this album," Manilow said in a statement.

"It reminded me of the days I used to play in piano bars. I loved those days. No Top 40 to worry about, no planes to catch, no hotel rooms to check into and out of, and none of those little bars of soap!"

Barry also revealed on his website that he never intended to commercially release the album, "It was a labor of love that was meant to stay 'in the drawer,' he said."But whenever I'd play it for friends, they'd ask for a copy and then tell me that they couldn't stop playing it."

Tracklist:
"I Fall In Love Too Easily"
"Alone Together"
"Blame It On My Youth"
"I Get Along Without You Very Well"
"You're Getting to Be a Habit with Me"
"It Amazes Me"
"But Not for Me"
"It's a New World"
"While We're Young"
"You Don't Know What Love Is"
"Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive"
"My One and Only Love"
"I've Never Been in Love Before"
"I Walk a Little Faster"
"Here's That Rainy Day"
"Some Other Time"
