Overview

With her latest release, What Matters Most – Barbra Streisand Sings the Lyrics of Alan and Marilyn Bergman, Streisand achieves her long-cherished desire to release an album of music with lyrics exclusively written by her collaborators and friends, Alan and Marilyn Bergman.

What Matters Most is Ms. Streisand’s first new album since the September 2009 release of Love Is The Answer, which debuted at Number One, making her the only artist to achieve number one albums in five consecutive decades.

The new album, which Streisand personally produced, is comprised of ten Bergman songs which Streisand has never previously recorded. Included in the set are the Academy Award winning songs “The Windmill of your Mind” (from the 1968 film The Thomas Crown Affair); “So Many Stars” (originally a hit song for Sergio Mendes & Brazil ‘66); “Nice ‘n’ Easy” (popularized by Frank Sinatra); and “That Face” (first recorded by Fred Astaire). The CD is packaged in a jewel box with a 24-page color booklet.

Reflecting on her long-held desire to devote an entire album to the amazingly varied and consistently inspired music of the Bergmans, Streisand noted, “Alan and Marilyn Bergman have a remarkable gift for expressing affairs of the heart.”
