Billboard.com公佈了Whitney新專輯部份曲目


全球都為Whitney瘋狂的同時,在Billboard.com的報導裡,公佈了惠妮新專輯"I Look To You"裡的部份曲目!

Whitney Houston appeared at the world premiere of her new album, "I Look to You" (Arista), in London last night (July 14).

A healthy-looking Houston appeared briefly on stage at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Knightsbridge after Sony Music chief creative officer Clive Davis played nine tracks from the album, due to be released Sept. 1 in the U.S. The U.K. release is via RCA on Aug. 31.

美國的發行日期是2009/09/01 (Arista Records/Sony Music)。
英國及全球發行日期則是2009/08/31 (RCA Records/Sony Music)。


Houston thanked Davis for his work on the album, saying: "When Clive called me I was pretty ready to buy my island home [and retire] but he said, 'No, you're going to sing again, people want to hear you.'"

Describing the album as "a labor of love" she said: "I hope that these songs stay with you for a lifetime."

Davis - who worked with Houston for the first time in 10 years on the album - stressed the album is "by no means done," while many of the songs played were still in unfinished form.

"We didn't try to fit Whitney Houston into the market," Davis said. "The copyrights associated with Whitney in the 1980s and '90s are part of the fabric of music today."

Nonetheless, collaborators on the album read like a who's who of contemporary pop/R&B, with songwriters and producers including Alicia Keys, Diane Warren, Stargate, R Kelly and Akon, who duets with Houston on "Like I Never Left."

在倫敦試聽發表會上,公佈了這9首新歌(只是專輯裡的部份曲目喔~)


The overall feel of the album was notably contemporary, while retaining Houston's trademark vocal flourishes. The up-tempo songs "Nuthin' But Love" and "A Song for You" received the best reaction from the invited audience of international media, while Davis particularly praised slower songs like the Warren-penned ballad "I Didn't Know My Own Strength" and R Kelly's title track, hailing Houston as "the premium balladeer of our time."

  3. To a-farn:
    "Like I Never Left"聽說有重後製過,試聽會上發表的新歌,幾乎都是還沒完成後製的(傳聞是這樣,事實上有無後製過,7/21(Tuesday) New York場的試聽會,應該會有更新的消息發布!)。


    To 威爾:
    A Song for You聽說是舞曲版喔!
