Diana Krall to Cover Elton
Wallflower will be launched by Verve Records on September 9, and will feature covers of songs by Bob Dylan, Elton John and The Eagles.
The album - which features songs from the 1960s right through to the present day - will also include a new composition by Paul McCartney.
The album was produced by 16-time Grammy Award-winning producer David Foster.
"It was a nice change for me to be in the vocal booth with pretty much only David's superb piano accompaniment and orchestrations," Krall said.
Foster added: "The songs Diana performs on this album are the ones she grew up hearing on the radio and listening to on vinyl. What makes this album so special is the way Diana re-imagines each tune and the way she puts her heart and soul into every syllable."
The record will serve as the follow-up to 2012's Glad Rag Doll, which debuted at number six on the US Billboard 200 and number 21 in the UK.
