Veteran singer/songwriter Barry Manilow is recording music he's written for a pair of stage projects as his next studio album. Due Sept. 28 via Concord, "SCORES -- Songs From Copacabana and Harmony" is being co-produced by Manilow and Phil Ramone. It is expected to boast 14 songs split between the musicals "Copacabana" and "Harmony."

"Getting to record these songs I love so dearly is truly an honor for me," Manilow says. "The joy of the songs from 'Copacabana' will surely entertain listeners and put smiles on faces, and the songs from 'Harmony' are some of my proudest achievements."

Grown out of his 1978 hit and one of his most well-known songs, "Copacabana" has been both a musical telefilm and a stage project in London, the United States, the Netherlands, Canada, Europe and India.

Based on the true story of Germany's Comedian Harmonists, "Harmony" is in development and is expected to open on Broadway next year. Manilow co-wrote the songs with Bruce Sussman, who wrote the show's book.

As previously reported, Manilow will open his "One Night Live! One Last Time!" world tour Sept. 30 in East Rutherford, N.J.
