Back by popular demand, Rod Stewart adds a fifth album to the chart-topping Great American Songbook series with Fly Me to the Moon: The Great American Songbook, Volume V
. Reuniting Rod with his longtime collaborators Richard Perry and Clive Davis, the album was produced by Perry and co-produced by Rod, Davis, and Lauren Wild.
Rod lends his incomparable vocal style to 12 standards written by the great Cole Porter, Johnny Mercer, Henry Mancini, and many others, including "That Old Black Magic," "Beyond the Sea," "What a Difference a Day Makes," "I've Got You Under My Skin," "I Get A Kick Out of You," and more. It's Rod's most danceable Songbook yet!
Clive Davis states: "Volume five is so fresh and Rod has never sounded better, delivering one great classic after another. This album introduces a brand new element to the Songbook phenomenon: you can't stop dancing to it. Dinner parties all over the world will never be the same."
Comments Rod: "A couple of years ago, I had the good fortune to befriend an American GI who had served in World War II and had been actively involved in the D-Day landings. He said in a broad, Brooklyn accent, and here I quote, 'Rawwwd, when are you gonna be doin' some of them old songs again 'cause you make them sound brand new.' That was all the inspiration I needed. Thank you sir and God bless you. Here's number five." From the Label
