Rita Wilson is ready to release a new album. The actress/singer and wife of Tom Hanks will drop “Now & Forever: Duets," on September 26th. Check out a preview below.
As the title suggests, the album will have her collaborating with several artists on classic seventies tunes. Guest stars on the album include Willie Nelson, Keith Urban, Jackson Browne, Smokey Robinson, Elvis Costello and more.
“I wanted to honor where I came from with songs from the Seventies. It was really about showing enormous appreciation for the songwriting of that period—how these songs are still relevant even though they’re 50 years old,” Rita shares. “This album is really a continuation of sharing who I am musically, and what it is that I want to say.”
