It has been over a decade since Barbra Streisand released her last duets album, but that will all change on September 16th when the iconic singer releases “Partners”. The LP finds Barbara singing alongside some of the world’s most recognizable male vocalists, including Andrea Bocelli, Michael Bublé, Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds, Josh Groban, Billy Joel, Lionel Richie, Stevie Wonder and a virtual duet with the King of rock n’ roll, Elvis Presley.
“Partners,” which you can pre-order now on iTunes, is comprised of 12 songs, many of which are regarded as Streisand classics. Among the songs included are “New York State Of Mind,” with Billy Joel, “It Had To Be You,” with Michael Bublé, “Come Rain Or Come Shine,” with John Mayer, “Love Me Tender,” with Elvis Presley, “The Way We Were,” with Lionel Richie, “What Kind Of Fool,” with John Legend, “People,” with Stevie Wonder, “I Can Still See Your Face,” with Andrea Bocelli, “Evergreen,” with Babyface, and Ms. Streisand’s first studio-recorded duet with her son Jason Gould, on “How Deep Is The Ocean.”
Recognized as an icon in multiple entertainment fields, Ms. Streisand has attained unprecedented achievements as a recording artist, actor of stage and screen, concert performer, movie producer, film director, author and songwriter. In her accomplished career she has been awarded two Oscars, five Emmys, ten Golden Globes, eight Grammys, a special Tony award in 1970 as star of the decade, and two Cable Ace awards – the only artist to receive honors in all of those fields of endeavor. Ms. Streisand is the recipient of the American Film Institute’s Lifetime Achievement Award, the National Endowment for the Arts Medal, two Peabody Awards, A Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and a Grammy Legend Award. Ms. Streisand is also the first film director to receive the Kennedy Center Honors.
