The British soul singer will release his new album, Standards, on Nov. 10, paying tribute to some of the pop cannon’s most legendary standards and the singers who immortalized them.The album features Seal’s take on songs made famous by Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Nat “King” Cole, and more. Unsurprisingly, even an accomplished vocalist like Seal finds tackling these titans no small task.”One has got to be really careful with that because the songs have withstood the test of time,” said Seal. “I feel that the songs from that era, they sing you. You’ve just got to trust them and trust the melody because the melodies are immaculate. They are sublime.”The album was recorded at the iconic Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, and focuses on the stories woven into the fabric of such classics as “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “I’m Beginning To See The Light” and “I Put A Spell On You,” to name a few.”It is about this kind of storytelling, we are having dialogue,” said Seal. “That seems to be the theme with me at the moment — both personally and professionally.”Tom Waits, Tracy Chapman, N.W.A.
