Glenn Frey Releases Standards Album


Six-time Grammy Award winner and founding member of The Eagles, Glenn Frey will release After Hours, a collection of classic love songs from the 40's to the present, on May 8th from Universal Music Enterprises. After Hours, his sixth solo album and first since 1995 is a total departure taking him in a whole new direction. The two-and-a half year project was developed out of Frey's passion for the songs and sound of such artists as Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, and Dinah Washington. The exquisite collection of songs include 40's classics such as "Sentimental Reasons" and "My Buddy," and favorites from some of his contemporaries, such as Brian Wilson's "Caroline No" and Randy Newman's "Same Girl" as well as the added spice of the American standard, "Route 66." Frey collaborated with co-producers Richard F.W. Davis and Michael Thompson, both members of The Eagles touring band, to make the 14-track record possible.
