As you may all know by now, Tony Bennett’s latest album, “Viva Duets”, set to be released this October 23, features duets with top Latin recording artists, Thalia being one of them.
“The way you look tonight” was first released in 1936 and has been covered by many artists since, Tony Bennett’s version becoming part of the soundtrack of the movie “My Best Friend’s Wedding”. He’s also done a duet with Faith Hill and for this new album it was Thalia’s turn to leave her special touch on the song.
While on Tony Bennett’s media networks some of the music videos of the songs included on the album have already been released, Univision.com was the first to premiere the duet with Thalia on one of their radio stations, so click here to listen to it!
According to People en español, Thalia was given a list of options and she chose “The way you look tonight”: “I’ve loved this song ever since Julia Roberts’ movie was released (“My Best Friend’s Wedding”)”, she said.
Obviously, the duet is absolutely wonderful and Thalia’s choice couldn’t have been better, it’s a sweet and calming song, with romantic lyrics, which for some reason makes me think of winter, this song being the perfect way of relaxing during a cold, snowy evening.
That being said, I’m looking forward to also watching the video (there has to be one!) and I’m also curious about the “Guitar Only” version of the duet, featured on the special US Target album.
