The multiple GRAMMY® Award-winning jazz pianist and world-renowned singer Diana Krall's highly anticipated new album Turn Up the Quiet will be released on May 5th by Verve Records. The first words Diana sings are, "Lately, I find myself out gazing at stars". Minutes later, the same voice asks, "Isn't It Romantic'", with such tenderness that it is hard to disagree. "I have thought about these songs for a long time. Being in the company of some of my greatest friends in music allowed me to tell these stories just as I'd intended. Sometimes you just have to turn up the quiet to be heard a little better."
