Michael Bublé back with new album

By on October 12, 2018

On November 16, Canadian world artist Michael Bublé released his eighth studio album “❤️” (love). After a while from the public, Michael returned to the studio with a new perspective on life and dedication to honor the music he has always loved. The result was an album filled with new interpretations by American song classics as well as some own songs.

“I didn’t anticipate returning to recording or performing and I was fine with that. My entire world view has changed completely these last few years. I wanted to spend all my time with my wife and kids. That was my focus. During that time, I also learned how much love and humanity is out in the world from the prayers and good wishes we received. But slowly, along with understanding what my priorities in life are, I began to feel a new commitment to express the emotions and lessons I’ve embraced. Whether I am the narrator, the observer, the main character, the dreamer, the broken hearted guy at a bar or having the night of a lifetime, I have stories to tell on this record. It’s all there in the songs. I have had so many blessings in life and one of them is that I hold the torch to keep these songs alive for generations to come. I take the responsibility very seriously. My end game for the new record was to create a series of short cinematic stories for each song I chose and have it stand on its own. I’m so proud of what we accomplished,”– Michael Bublé

The new album “❤️” contains several classics such as “When I Fall In Love”, “My Funny Valentine”, “Unforgettable”, “Help Me Make It Through The Night” and “La Vie On Rose” which is a duet with singer Cecile McLorin Salvant. Michael has also made his own version of Charlie Puth’s “Love You Anymore”. The album ends with “Where or When”. The album is produced by David Foster, Jochem van der Saag and Michael himself.
