Barbra Streisand fans have a lot to look forward to this fall: The legendary entertainer will be releasing not one but two special releases.
October 27 sees the release of Evergreens: Celebrating Six Decades on Columbia Records as well as Yentl: 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition. Both of the releases will be out a week before Barbs’ highly anticipated memoir, My Name Is Barbra, due November 7.
A preview of Evergreens is available now: It’s a 2023 mix of “Evergreen (Love Theme from ‘A Star Is Born’),” featuring Barbra’s original vocals with a new arrangement. October 6 will bring an unreleased song from the Yentl soundtrack: an alternate version of the Oscar-nominated song “Papa, Can You Hear Me?”
Evergreens includes 22 songs personally selected by Barbra as some of her favorites. None of them have previously appeared on compilations before; they each “hold a special place in her heart and memory,” according to a press release.
The Yentl 40th anniversary album features a bonus disc of 15 previously unreleased songs as well as songs from the original album. The unreleased tracks include 10 demos that Barbra recorded in her living room on a cassette deck with only piano accompaniment. The package will be available on vinyl as a Barnes & Noble exclusive on two discs.
Here’s the track list for Evergreens:
“I’ll Tell The Man In The Street”
