Michael Bublé, who has sold over 22 million CDs worldwide, released his last album back in 2007, the Grammy-winning Call Me Irresponsible. This record, his third, was a #1 album in more than 15 countries. No stranger to success, he decided to do things a little differently for his next album.
Bublé takes a much more introspective approach to each song on the new album. “Basically, I sang the truth – made each song autobiographical – and you can definitely hear the difference,” he says. “The musicians and I all sat in the room, recorded it right from the floor and we let the sounds all come together and bleed into one another. It’s not contrived. Not too perfect. It just feels really good.”
He recorded the album in multiple recording studios over the last six months, working in L.A., Brooklyn, New York, and his home town of Vancouver. Working with producers David Foster, Bob Rock, and Humberto Gatica, it includes 13 songs, including such standards as “You’re Nobody Till Somebody Loves You,” “Georgia On My Mind,” and Van Morrison’s “Crazy Love.” His first single “Haven’t Met You Yet” was the first single to hit the radio back in August.
Here’s the first video from Crazy Love for “Haven’t Met You Yet”:
