Actress Glenn Close recently made music headlines for her playful performance of a song by R&B and Hip Hop star “Da Butt” at the Academy Awards.
Now, the 74-year-old has some music news of her own. She’s releasing an album with Grammy-winning jazz saxophonist-composer Ted Nash on Friday.
Close worked with Nash on his previous albums. This time, she’ll sing on three songs.
It will have 11 tracks of spoken-word jazz on topics like race, politics and identity. Other celebrities taking part include Amy Irving, Wayne Brady, and poetry read by Ted Hughes, Conrad Aiken and Judith Clark.
