Dame Shirley Bassey has announced a new album.
Hello Like Before will be the star's first record in five years and celebrates the 60 years she has spent in the entertainment business. The new album celebrates Bassey's favourite songs of the 20th century and includes reworkings of Sting's "Englishman In New York" and Frank Sinatra's "It Was A Very Good Year".
"When I was 17 I was too young to do this song, and when I was 21, and 35... I've waited all these years to do it," Bassey said of the Sinatra classic.
The star added of album track "Macarthur Park": "I broke down with emotion in the rehearsals for this, couldn't finish it... I want it to make everybody cry."
The album was recorded at Abbey Road studios with producer and musical director Stuart Barr. Hello Like Before will be released on November 17.
