Babs is back!
Beloved gay icon, Barbra Streisand, debuted a brand-new album yesterday. Walls features original issue-driven songs (see the video for the first single below), as well as melancholy covers of tunes such as Imagine, What a Wonderful World and Happy Days Are Here Again.
As always, her luscious voice takes center stage with beautiful and sometimes thought-provoking results. Unlike our beloved Cher who strives to be contemporary and remain relevant, Barbra sticks to an old-school sound that may not always be in fashion, but will never go out of style.
It’s enough to make a grown queen weep.
Walls, Barbra Streisand
Out now in multiple formats
