Legendary Songstress Dionne Warwick Announces First New Album in Five Years

Legendary Grammy Award winner DIONNE WARWICK will
release her first new album in 5 years, “SHE’S BACK”, on May
10th. Produced by her son Damon Elliot, the album will be
released via his Kind Music and Entertainment One (eOne).
The lead-off single will be an updated version of the
Burt Bacharach/Hal David classic, “What The World Needs
Now Is Love”, which Dionne recorded during the 1960s.
 
In addition to ten tracks of new songs as well of remakes of
pop/soul gems, “She’s Back” will be packaged with a bonus disc of Ms. Warwick’s 1998 album, “Dionne Sings Dionne”, which features her greatest hits, remastered for this package. “She’s Back” also
includes duets with Kenny Lattimore (“What Color Is Love”),
Musiq Soulchild (“Am I Dreaming?) as well as
Bone, Thugs & Harmony’s Krayzie Bone (“Déjà Vu”) .
 
“She’s Back” is Ms. Warwick’s 36th full-length studio recording,
and her first dedicated R&B/soul album in fifty years, since the
release of Dionne’s stellar 1969 Scepter LP, Soulful, which she
co-produced in Memphis with the late Chips Moman
(who’d manned the boards for Dionne’s then-label mate, B.J. Thomas).
 
Ms. Warwick is one of several legends to be chosen to receive one of the Grammy Awards’ highest honors this year – the Lifetime
Achievement Award. She joins music greats such as George
Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic, Billy Eckstine, Donny
Hathaway, Julio Iglesias as well as Sam & Dave in this bestowed
class. The honorees were mentioned in the Grammy Awards live
telecast earlier this month. A separate award presentation
ceremony and concert celebrating the honorees will be held the
day after the release of She’s Back, on May 11, 2019, in Los
Angeles.
 
Additionally, Dionne will begin a highly anticipated concert
residency in Las Vegas on April 4, 2019.
