Those completists among us will be looking to acquire a copy of Diana Krall’s new CD called Wallflower. Due out on October 21, it will contain a previously unreleased tune from Paul McCartney called “If I Take You Home Tonight”.
Diana Krall, jazz pianist, vocalist, and wife of Elvis Costello, played a significant role on McCartney’s Kisses on the Bottom standards CD and LP from 2012.
“I still had a copy of the music,” Krall said, “and I asked him if he was O.K. if I did the song for my record and he said, ‘Sure’. So we recorded that and it came out just gorgeous. It’s a new Paul McCartney song that’s never been recorded that I’m pretty honored to have.”
You should credit your source … namely Steve Marinucci at the examiner.com … that’s common courtesy.
Fair enough! Thanks for pointing that out. And there’s also the article that Steve originally got the story from, too: http://www.oregonlive.com/music/index.ssf/2014/04/diana_krall_next_album_neil_young.html
Diana Krall is awesome and I love her new album Wallflower.
I also think Paul McCartney is awesome too so it’s great she was able to record this unreleased song from him.
