Barbra Streisand Debuts Never Before Heard Song From 1971 [AUDIO]
August 29, 2012 1 Comment
Last night, Barbra Streisand released a recording she did in 1971 to the delight of fans around the globe.
“I Think It’s Going to Rain Today” is Barbra at her crisp, clear best. This treasure is the first of 11 tracks to come out of the vault for her brand new compilation album of unreleased material, Release Me. The new record will be available on vinyl on Sept. 25 and on CD and MP3 on Oct. 9.
The album comes out just before Barbra goes on tour again for a series of concerts in October, when she’ll perform with special guests Chris Botti and Il Volo at venues in Pennsylvania, Chicago and several cities in Canada. Visit her website to get the full schedule and purchase tickets to one of these spectacular performances.
But first, take a listen to the new song and tell us what you think. Here’s what some early listeners thought when they heard the track yesterday.
As one fan (newvocals) commented on Barbra’s website, “So amazing to hear a new song from so many years ago! What a pleasure to one’s ears.”
Ron Amato simply said, “Wow. Just wow.”
I have to agree. The crisp clear sounds of classic Babs is pure gold on this divine new track. I can’t wait to hear the rest of the collection, which includes one of my all-time favorite songs, “Home” from the Broadway musical The Wiz.
