Earlier last year, OG Hypebeast Jeff Goldblum dropped his first ever jazz album titled The Capitol Studios Sessions alongside Decca Records Label Group. Now the multi-hyphenate is gearing up to launch a followup LP to showcase both his singing and piano skills dubbed, I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This.
Along with announcing the new album, Goldblum shared the first single off the project. Titled “Let’s Face The Music And Dance,” the track is a rendition of Irving Berlin’s 1936 classic of the same name and features vocals from Sharon Van Etten. The song opens with Etten singing over a sparse piano and standup bass as the piece then slowly builds to a danceable number. Goldblum, on the other-hand, flaunts his piano skills and running bass lines.
“As far as I can tell, everyone loves Jeff Goldblum. It’s like a universal truth,” said Tom Lewis, director of A&R for Decca. “His love of jazz is infectious and whenever he plays he makes you feel very happy. If we can take Jeff’s music into people’s homes then we will be helping, in our own small way, to make the world a happier place.”
I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This will feature guest appearances from Fiona Apple, Sharon Van Etten, Anna Calvi, and more and is backed by his longtime band The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra. The album lands on November 1 and can be pre-ordered now via decca.com.
Along with his upcoming album, Goldblum will be hosting his very own Disney+ series this Fall called The World According to Jeff Goldblum.
