Diana Krall Returns With Rock-Tinged 'Glad Rag Doll': Listen
Diana Krall is getting "Glad" on a journey to the past.
For the jazz singer's '20s and '30s-inspired "Glad Rag Doll," she teamed with producer T Bone Burnett (John Mellencamp, Willie Nelson), making what the singer calls "a song and dance record." The new sound, driven by Marc Ribot's guitar playing, is evident on "There Ain't No Sweet Man That's Worth the Salt of My Tears," a song written by composer Fred Fisher. Ribot also appeared on the Burnett-produced "National Ransom," the 2010 release by Krall's husband, Elvis Costello.
The album is due Sept. 25 on Verve Records. It's her follow-up to 2009's Brazil-influenced "Quiet Nights," which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.
