Barry Manilow, one of the world’s all-time bestselling recording artists, returns with his new album, ‘This Is My Town: Songs of New York’ – his love letter to the Big Apple. A native New Yorker, Barry’s been in love with the city’s rhythms, melodies and music since childhood. Now, with the release of his new studio record on Verve Label Group / Decca Records on April 21st, he’s “saying thanks to the city for giving me my ambition, my sense of humour and my decency” with a thematic song cycle celebrating his home town.

“I’m grateful for having been raised there because I've always felt grounded,” Barry says. “One of the things I’m most proud of is that having gone through the hurricane of success, I feel I'm still the same guy that took the subway every day to work in Manhattan. And I attribute that grounding to being raised in New York.”

More than a year in creation, ‘This Is My Town: Songs of New York’ comprises 10 new Barry Manilow studio recordings with the songs evenly divided between new original Manilow compositions and standards evoking the spirit and energy of New York City. While writing his own songs for the album, Barry made demos of the classic New York-inspired songs he loved to sing.

According to Barry, “the album is like a melting pot – just like New York is. We take you from Brooklyn to Broadway to Birdland. We even wind up in Coney Island. Take a look at the titles and it really does look like you’re going from place to place to place. There are different styles. There’s pop, there’s a little rock and roll, there’s jazz, there’'s a little R&B, and Broadway. That’s what I think of when I think of my home town and of New York.”

Barry Manilow has sold more than 85 million albums worldwide. He’s had an astonishing 50 Top 40 singles including 12 No.1s and 27 Top 10 hits and is ranked at the No.1 Adult Contemporary Artist of all-time, according to Billboard and R&R magazines.
