(New York – November 17, 2008) Due to popular demand and the Thanksgiving holiday, Grammy, Tony, and Emmy Award-winning Arista recording artist Barry Manilow will be releasing his new album, THE GREATEST SONGS OF THE EIGHTIES, in stores a day early on Monday, November 24th on Arista Records.
Barry Manilow is scheduled to debut material from GREATEST SONGS OF THE EIGHTIES live tonight on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, on QVC’s QSessions Live at 8pm on November 20th Live from the Las Vegas Hilton, The Today Show on November 28th, 4 consecutive nights of appearances on Entertainment Tonight beginning November 24th, and on December 12th, he will be appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live.
THE GREATEST SONGS OF THE EIGHTIES is Manilow’s newest addition to the mega-best-selling series of tribute albums that he masterminded with Arista founder Clive Davis. Davis has been Manilow’s hitmaking collaborator on virtually all his recordings, since they first worked together on “Mandy,” his debut #1 single as the first artist signed to Arista by Davis in 1974, the first year of the label’s existence. THE GREATEST SONGS OF THE EIGHTIES continues the series that began nearly three years ago with The Greatest Songs Of The Fifties, which was certified RIAA platinum after entering the Billboard 200 at #1 in January 2006 (his first #1 album since Barry Manilow/Live in 1977). The Greatest Songs Of The Sixties (October 2006) entered at #2. When the RIAA platinum The Greatest Songs Of The Seventies entered at #4 (September 2007), he was distinguished as the only artist to chart three Top 5 debuts during 2006-2007.
