Shout Factory RecordsHerb Alpert is back with an album that combines new takes on songs from his own catalog with other standards and more jazz-influenced fare. Steppin' Out will be released digitally on September 24th but won't hit stores until November 19. The disc includes 16 songs by the legendary 78-year-old trumpeter, producer and A&M Records co-founder, some of which feature vocals from Alpert's wife, singer Lani Hall.
The lead single from Steppin' Out will be a cover of "Puttin' on the Ritz," a song made famous in 1930 by Irving Berlin and later given a pop-dance spin by '80s one-hit wonder Taco. Alpert has filmed a video for the song which was choreographed by Napoleon &Tabitha D'umo, the Emmy-winning team from So You Think You Can Dance.
Other songs on Steppin' Out include new takes on "I Only Have Eyes for You," "It's All in the Game" and "Europa," which was co-written by Carlos Santana.
