"I Think It's Going to Rain Today," the first single from Barbra Streisand's upcoming album of music from her personal vaults, has been released.
Release Me, the legendary entertainer's next album, contains songs from a cross section of Streisand's career from 1963 to the present that have been stored in her personal vault and never official available to the public until now. "I Think It's Going to Rain Today" was recorded in 1971 during the sessions for Streisand's landmark Stoney End album and features the song's composer, Randy Newman, accompanying her on the piano.
Last week Streisand released a statement about the new collection, saying, “The thing I’m happiest about is that I still have great affection for all these songs. They appealed to me at the time … and still do. Listening now, I actually think to myself, ‘The girl wasn’t half bad.’” Release Me will be available on vinyl September 25 and CD and MP3 download on October 9. Pre-order the album here.
