Nancy Sinatra has unveiled her latest single, Holly Holy – a cover of the underrated Neil Diamond track – and if that wasn’t enough, the tracklist for her new album of classic covers, Shifting Gears.
Shifting Gears marks Sinatra’s first studio release since 2004’s self-titled release, Nancy Sinatra. We are delighted to say that after hearing the first single, new music from the You Only Live Twice hitmaker was well worth the wait. Holly Holy is a big booming orchestral number showing Sinatra’s heavenly vocals in a style that remains to true to her classy vintage roots. We honestly could not love Nancy’s version of this grand sweeping gospel anthem anymore.
The full tracklist for Shifting Gears is as follows:
1. As Time Goes By
2. When I Look in Your Eyes
3. Holly Holy
4. I’ll Build a Stairway to Paradise
5. Cockeyed Optimist (Guitar Version)
6. I Can See Clearly Now
7. Killing Me Softly With His Song
8. Play Me
10. MacArthur Park
11. The Hungry Years
12. Cockeyed Optimist (Orchestral Version)
13. Why Did I Choose You
14. I Don’t Know How to Love Him
15. We Need a Little Christmas
We’re incredibly excited to hear Nancy’s spin on many of these iconic and underrated tracks, and are delighted to have her back! You can pre-order Shifting Gears from iTunes, as well as listening to Holly Holy below.
