Ugh, I grew up obsessed with her and admiring her and her choices and just being such a fan. [Sighs.] And, now, to be able to share a stage with her I have learned so, so much every single time - you know, there is no one like her. There is just no other talent like her talent. Just her commitment to every single moment is spectacular - spectacular. And, I feel honored to be able to say that she’s also a good buddy.

Go Back Home” as heard on Go Back Home (released date: 21 May 13)

music John Kander lyric Fred Ebb

performance Audra McDonald

BREAKING NEWS.  Audra McDonald has set a release date for her new album, and it’s the day before my 30th Birthday.  (She clearly knows about my Birthday, as it was the date the Porgy cast recording dropped.) I already pre-ordered it.  AND YOU CAN TO.  With a pre-order you’ll get the CD, a digital download, a “signed print” AND the ability to download this titular track!  

The track list (which includes a number of songs she’s been singing in concerts for years and I’m glad to see finally put on record) is as follows (taken from playbill.com):

“Go Back Home”
From The Scottsboro Boys
Music and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb

“The Glamorous Life”
From the film A Little Night Music
Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

“Baltimore”
Lyrics by Marcy Heisler/music by Zina Goldrich

“First You Dream”
From Steel Pier
Music by John Kander/lyrics by Fred Ebb

“Tavern”

“Migratory V”
From Saturn Returns
Music and lyrics by Adam Guettel

“Virtue”
Music and lyrics by Michael John LaChiusa, inspired by Marlene Dietrich’s “ABC”

“Married Love”
Music and lyrics by Michael John LaChiusa, inspired by Marlene Dietrich’s “ABC”

“I’ll Be Here
From Ordinary Days
Music and yrics by Adam Gwon

“Some Days”
