Annie Lennox has recorded an album of classics from the 1930s and 1940s covering songs from greats such as Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday.

‘Nostalgia’ will be Lennox’s first album since her Christmas release ‘A Christmas Cornucopia’ of 2010 and her original album ‘Songs Of Mass Destruction’ of 2007.

“I’m very happy to confirm that I will be releasing a new album, entitled “NOSTALGIA” on October 21st (US)/ October 27th (rest of world), on the Blue Note label in the USA and Island Records internationally,” Annie said in a statement. “The record has been a labour of love, which I very much hope you will enjoy..(For all you sound epicureans… It’s coming out first in glorious vinyl …which I can personally recommend as a listening experience!)”

Annie started work on ‘Nostalgia’ in October 2013 and downed tools with producers Don Was and Mike Stevens mid this year.

Of the six solo albums Annie Lennox has recorded outside of Eurythmics this will be her third album of covers.

‘Nostalgia’ will be released in October, 2014.
