"I'm crying with ecstasy over this new album. Creatively, I'm happy as a clam. This collection of cohorts (cream of the crop), with whom I get to cavort, is outa this cosmos. Ouch, my crackling cranium! I'm crowing!!!" – Jeff Goldblum

After his live set being hailed as one of Glastonbury 2019's most iconic moments this summer, at which he announced from the stage that a brand new record was in the works, Jeff Goldblum is now set to release an album which will make the listener smile even more than his first one. If that is possible. With his long-time band The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, the enticingly-titled album I Shouldn't Be Telling You This will be released globallyNovember 1 on Decca Records and features an impressive array of surprising duet guests.

With last year's debut – which was met with glowing reviews and landed the Hollywood icon a No.1 jazz album in the UK, US, Germany and Australia – Goldblum was described in The Times as performing an important service by "reminding us that jazz should be allowed to be fun". With playing that is "as loose and improvisational as his acting" (Daily Telegraph) Goldblum yet again brings his on-screen charisma and eccentricities to the piano, with a style that is totally unique. 

And this time, we are treated not only to his piano-playing skills but to his incredibly distinctive voice, as the man himself takes centre stage to sing ‘Little Man, You've Had A Busy Day'. First released on Decca in 1934, it is here particularly poignant coming from the father of two young Goldblum sons.

But before his closing lullaby, Goldblum has assembled an extraordinary gang of vocalists from all walks of musical life, some of whom reveal their jazz voices for the very first time. Following the triumphant Glastonbury performance, acclaimed singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten stars on the first single, Irving Berlin's classic number ‘Let's Face The Music and Dance', out today. Also joining Jeff is Brit Award and Mercury Prize nominee Anna Calvi, for a mash-up of Wes Montgomery's ‘Four on Six' and Marianne Faithful's ‘Broken English'. The 1954 Frank Sinatra hit ‘Don't Worry ‘Bout Me' features Grammy Award-winning Fiona Apple, Sonny & Cher favorite ‘The Beat Goes On' is sung by American singer-songwriter Inara George, and the 1939 hit ‘If I Knew Then' is recorded here with one of LA's most in demand jazz singers, Gina Saputo. There are also two more very special, chart-topping star guests to be announced in due course.
