The king of swing Michael Bublé is back with the release of his new album “Nobody But Me,” which hit stores on Oct. 21.
This young Canadian, now a father of two, has come a long way from being on his dad’s fishing boat and performing at small bars in New York City and Vancouver.
He is now selling out large arenas and over 55 million records.
After just recovering from vocal cord surgery, Bublé has released one of his best albums yet.
In the 2010 American Music Awards, Bublé won Favorite Adult Contemporary Artist and won a Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album for four of his eight albums.
“Bublé is a great singer but if you do not like his style you should still go see him in concert,” said Anissa Cooper, “he has a away of grabbing a room with jokes and the power of his vocals and instrumental work of his music.”
Bublé does not seize to amaze people with his covers and now with more original songs than he’s ever released.
The album features “Someday,” a duet with Meghan Trainor, which was written by her and One Directions’ Harry Styles.
He chose his duets wisely, with the way his vocals harmonized perfectly with Nelly Furtado’s in early works and now with Trainor’s voice.
From originals like the title track “Nobody But Me,” to many classics including “My Baby Just Cares For Me,” “The Very Thought of You,” and “God Only Knows,” he hit every line and every note enticed me more.
“God Only Knows,” was performed for the first time in New Year’s Day in Vegas.
“I may not always love you/ But long as there are stars above you/ You never need to doubt it/ I’ll make you so sure about it.”
The lyrics made me think about the strong emotions he has towards his lover.
“The classics are great but his own work is better. I’ve seen him twice in concert and he is an amazing performer,” said Scott Strunk.
The style that he sings ranges from Vocal pop to big band, bringing you back from the great rat pack days of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.
“It’s a very well rounded album. Bublé never seizes to amaze us with his voice,” said Strunk.
This is a step up from his last album “To Be Loved,” he went back to his roots of big band and the results proved successful.
“Nobody But Me” was recorded in Los Angeles and Vancouver. And You can find this album on iTunes Spotify or target.
