The new album from the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will feature nine new original songs, as well as covers of the Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby” and “Yesterday.” The album will also feature numinous classics, “Smile,” “America The Beautiful” and “Summertime.”

“I wanted to create something optimistic and uplifting that acknowledged the current times that we are in and more importantly, that we will all get through this together and be stronger,” said Alpert in a press release.

Earlier this year, Alpert released new music from the forthcoming album, including videos for the tracks “Dance With Me,” “Zoo Train 21” and “Smile,” which fans can watch below:

Alpert, who released a documentary, Herb Alpert Is… in 2020 to much adulation, has also announced a number of tour stops for 2022 (dates below). The artist, who was one of the most successful artists in the second half of the 20th century (he won nine Grammys from 1966-2014), has sold over 72 million records, co-founded A&M Records, and helped launch the careers of many artists, including Sergio Mendes and The Carpenters.
