    Wallflower

    Wallflower is five-time Grammy Award-winning jazz pianist and singer Diana Krall's new studio album released via Verve Records. Wallflower is a collection of songs from the late 60's to present day that inspired Krall in her early years. Produced by 16-time
    Grammy® Award-winning producer David Foster, the album finds Krall breaking new ground with her interpretations of some of the greatest pop songs of
    all time.


    On Wallflower, Diana Krall showcases her considerable gifts as a vocalist in a bold and beautiful way. Krall sings a set of songs that include
    familiar popular classics like The Mamas and the Papas' "California Dreaming" and the Eagles' "Desperado," favorite vintage songs by Krall's musical
    heroes Bob Dylan (he inspired the album's title track "Wallflower") and Elton John ("Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word"). The album also features
    more recent gems like Crowded House's "Don't Dream It's Over" and a wonderful new composition from Paul McCartney ("If I Take You Home Tonight").
    Diana Krall's unique artistry transcends any single musical style and has made her one of the most recognizable artists of our time. Krall has sold more
    albums than any other female jazz artist in the last 30 years, establishing herself as one of the best-selling artists of her generation. The new album marks
    Krall's first studio effort since 2012's Glad Rag Doll, produced by T Bone Burnett, which debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 and at No. 1 on the Jazz
    Albums chart.


    Diana Krall is the only jazz singer to have eight albums debut at the top of the Billboard Jazz Albums chart. To date, she has won five
    Grammy® Awards, eight Juno® Awards and has also earned nine gold, three platinum and seven multi-platinum albums. Tour dates will be announced
    soon.

    The Diving Board

    Capitol Records is proud to announce the release of Elton John's The Diving Board, the artist's first solo studio album in seven years. Produced by T Bone Burnett, the album features 12 new songs written by Elton and his longtime lyricist Bernie Taupin, as well as three piano interludes composed by the artist.


    The Diving Board returns Elton John to the piano, bass and drums lineup that marked the artist's introduction to worldwide audiences more than 40 years ago. As Elton explains, "In many ways, I feel like I'm starting again, making records. Several years ago when beginning to work with T Bone and being in the studio with Leon Russell for The Union, I had to ask myself, 'What kind of music do I really want to make?', and I realized that I had to go back to go forward again. I needed to strip away the excesses and get back to the core of what I do as an artist. That's what The Diving Board represents. I'm
    incredibly excited about every aspect of this album: The performances, T Bone's production, Bernie's lyrics and the songs we've created. The Diving Board is the album I've been waiting to make for decades."

    The Story

    On her new album, The Story, Brandi Carlile opens up her heart, soul, and psyche in a series of memorable songs that invite you into her world. The intensity and authenticity of her music brought her to the attention of the Grammy Award-winning producer T Bone Burnett (Counting Crows, Roy Orbison) who came on-board to produce The Story. This is the album I've always wanted to make, Brandi explains. I love Elton John because his albums captured moments in time. My favorite records have the timeless feeling you get when a band locks itself in the studio for two weeks and comes out with a record.

    The Wild Swan

    The Wild Swan was recorded in Nashville at Blackbird Studios with Grammy Award-winner Jacquire King. Recording legend Elton John is the album's Executive Producer.


    The Wild Swan opens with Noam Chomsky Is A Soft Revolution, a rock'n'blues celebration of a roll-call of musical, philosophical, literary and polemical insurrectionists. It ends with a dash of uillean pipes and The Wild Swans On The Lake, a stop-you-in-your-tracks breath of Celtic balladry inspired by WB Yeats' The Wild Swans At Coole. Vance's rich voice also gets up close and personal on the hymnal Burden, then digs deep for She Burns, a song and a performance evocative of Bruce Springsteen's Tunnel Of Love. On the ancient-but-modern Be Like You Belong, Vance's soulful rasp weaves through pedal-steel and simple piano chords. Ziggy Looked Me In The Eye is a piano-based, strings-buoyed soul-stirrer, a dignified tribute to, says Vance, various people who I think have been part of a revolution. I'm not talking about Che Guevara or Ghandi or even Russell Brand for that matter - I'm talking about personal revolution. I like that idea constantly revolting against your own parameters.

    Billy Joel has become the sixth best-selling recording artist and the third best-selling solo artist in the United States. He has had multiple Top 10 hits in the '80s and '90s, all of which he wrote singlehandedly. He is also a six-time Grammy Award winner, has sold over 100 million records worldwide and was inducted into almost every Hall of Fame there exists. Joel retired from recording pop music in 1993 but continues to tour, often with Elton John.


    'The Stranger' is his fifth studio album, originally released in 1977. While his four previous albums had been moderate chart successes, this was his breakthrough album. It remains Joel's best-selling non-compilation album to date. 'The Stranger' contains nine songs, many of which are now considered "classic Joel". Much of the album's success is attributed to Joel's collaboration with producer Phil Ramone, whose innovative production methods complemented Joel's songs. This fruitful collaboration would continue for a decade.


    Whereas a handful of Joel's preceding efforts feature a near-flawless mix of melodic arrangements and poignant lyrics, the aspects he sought in order to graduate into a more serious artist arrive here via Ramone's more muscular, fleshed-out, and rock-enabling production. The streamlined approach slightly strips back the sweeping developments heard on Piano Man and Turnstiles, and on this edition, lays bare the core of the material, allowing the vocalist's bittersweet yearning, rollicking 88 notes, and working-class conviction to emanate with full-bodied detail, vivid color, and grand-scale dynamics.


    A Grammy winner for both Record and Song of the Year, "Just the Way You Are" epitomizes Joel's balladic reach, his ability to transfer wistful sentiments and lovelorn emotions. He also flashes a mean streak. The animated "Only the Good Die Young" bounces and hops to an updated classic-R&B rhythm and, underneath its beauty, "She's Always A Woman" hints at trouble underfoot. And then there's the New York-centric, character-rich poetry of the vignettes.


    Akin to many of his influences, Joel nails the grit, personality, specificity, descriptiveness, and behavior of protagonists that populate "Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)" and "Scenes From an Italian Diner," each equally at home on The Stranger as well as on a Broadway play or on a golden-era Hollywood film soundtrack. No wonder that, just months after its original release, Joel was no longer a stranger to any of the music-loving public. He would never look back.

    Genius Loves Company (10th Anniversary)

    Upon its release in 2004, few could have predicted the extraordinary, game-changing effect that Ray Charles' final recording would have on both his career and the industry as a whole. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the legend's milestone recording, Concord/Hear Music will release a special 2LP, 45RPM, 180-gram Vinyl Edition.


    One of Charles' most inspirational and historically significant albums, Genius Loves Company captures the genius of the music icon in his last studio recording pairing him with legendary guest artists including Norah Jones, Diana Krall, James Taylor, Elton John, Willie Nelson and Bonnie Raitt to name a few. The album went on to receive an astounding 8 GRAMMY® Awards, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year. To help launch a then-groundbreaking consumer marketing campaign, Genius Loves Company was tapped as the first original release through the Starbucks Hear Music imprint in conjunction with Concord Music Group. Since its release on August 31st, 2004, Genius Loves Company has been certified multi-platinum with worldwide sales in excess of 5 million copies.


    Produced by John Burk, Concord Music Group's chief creative officer, and co-produced by the legendary Phil Ramone, Genius Loves Company garnered critical acclaim upon its release. NPR All Things Considered hailed, "It's got flashes of fire you wouldn't expect from such a setting, gems of phrasing that remind you how Ray Charles transformed the wreckage of heartbreak into poignant sound," and Rolling Stone added, "the tone is reverential and warm, as the Genius sings "


    "Ray was shocked that these people wanted to sing with him," recalls Ray Charles Foundation president Valerie Ervin. "He just didn't understand the magnitude of where he was in the industry. As weak as he became he made sure he gave his best for every artist that was there for him."


    "Ray Charles was one of those rare artists who, throughout his incredible career, had far-reaching impact that forever changed the conventions of popular music as well as the music business," said Concord Music Group chief creative officer John Burk. "Looking back at the last 10 years, it's clear that this album was certainly no exception. We are humbled, honored and blessed to have had the opportunity to work with such a musical giant, and we are eternally grateful to Ray for elevating both Concord Records and Hear Music to new heights, far beyond our wildest dreams ten years ago."
