May 2010 MAY 2010 - Robert is heading into the studio to record his new Trio album! Teaming up with Juno-award winning bassist Brandi Disterheft and monster drummer "Great" Bob Scott, Robert plans to serve up an eclectic spread of original pieces and his trademark genre-jumping arrangements (working title: "The Nature of Swings")
MAY 2010 -Why record only one new album when you can record two? One week after Robert records with Brandi Disterheft, he heads back into the studio with his Power Trio (featuring the matchless Chris Gartner on electric bass, "Great" Bob Scott on drums) to record their first album. The Power Trio specializes in "ambient fusion" - a mix of electronic music, improvisation, and experimental sound design.
"Michael Buble plans to give fans another dose of "Crazy Love" in 2010.
The Canadian singer tells Billboard.com that he plans to reissue the album -- which spent its first two weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and currently sits at No. 7 -- next year and add some of the other songs he recorded during the sessions. Among those will be "Hollywood Dead," which will be "Crazy Love's" third single after "Have I Met You" and "Hold On."
"That's probably the best pop song I've ever been part of," says Buble, who co-wrote the track with Toronto songwriter Robert Scott. "It's kind of like our take on the culture of celebrity and how f--ked up it is and how people lose their way in the hunt for fame...It's just one of those things saying, 'If you're gonna go for it, don't give everything up for it. Remember where you came from...You need to remember what you asked for when you get it."
