Target singing a new tune with Tony Bennett
MINNEAPOLIS — Target announced that it will offer an exclusive edition of Tony Bennett's next studio album, "Duets II." The deluxe edition of the album will be available at Target stores and at Target.com beginning Sept. 20. Target previously partnered with Bennett in 2006 for his album "Duets An American Classic."
“I celebrated my 85th birthday in August and the celebration is continuing with this special gift to my fans,” said Bennett. “I hope they enjoy the extra songs found only at Target.”
The Target version of the album includes two exclusive songs from country singer Brad Paisley and soprano singer Jackie Evancho. Bennett partners with Paisley for a smooth version of “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” and Evancho for a rendition of “When You Wish Upon a Star.” Also available on Sept. 20, and only at Target.com, is an exclusive downloadable video that explores the making of “Duets II.”
“Tony Bennett has legions of music fans that span generations and genres,” said John Butcher, VP entertainment for Target. “His music is timeless and we welcomed the opportunity to partner with Tony again to produce a deluxe edition of “Duets II” for Target.”
