Laura Benanti CD (Autographed)
Purchase includes CD booklet signed by Laura Benanti.
Laura Benanti has announced the release of her self-titled debut album, out Friday, October 23. The 11-track album features the versatile artist performing a mix of covers both classic and contemporary, breathing new spirit into everything from modern pop songs to jazz-influenced ballads, including her fresh new take on Rufus Wainwright’s classic “Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk”.
“I hope the album becomes a part of someone’s own canon,” says Laura Benanti of her major label debut album. “You could put it on at a dinner party or listen to it in the bath. It could speak to so many different possible moments. Across the board, the record really fulfills my desire for musical outreach. I tried to showcase some really great playing—and hopefully singing.”
In the midst of an illustrious career spanning Broadway, film, and television, Tony® Award-winning actress, singer, author, and activist Laura Benanti now brings a longstanding dream to life as she gears up to release new solo music with Sony Music Masterworks.
