The as-yet-untitled album was co-produced by Krall and longtime collaborator Tommy LiPuma, who has been behind the boards with the artist since her 1994 sophomore effort, "Only Trust Your Heart."
The set will feature Krall's interpretations of standards like "From This Moment On," "How Insensitive" and "It Could Happen to You" in quartet and large band settings. Guitarist Anthony Wilson and the Clayton/Hamilton Jazz Orchestra join the artist on the record.
Though there's no word yet as to a supporting tour, Krall is scheduled to perform at Jazz Aspen Snowmass in Aspen, Colo. on June 23 and then hit Europe for a handful of summer festival dates.
This will be Krall's first release since 2005's "Christmas Songs" and her tenth studio set overall. "The Girl in the Other Room" from 2004 peaked at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 872,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
In related news, Krall is tipped to appear on Vince Gill's next studio album, due later this year.
