MINNEAPOLIS - March 13, 2013
Target® Corp. (NYSE: TGT) and three-time GRAMMY® award-winning singer and songwriter Michael Bublé are pairing up again for an exclusive deluxe edition of Bublé’s highly anticipated sixth studio album, “To Be Loved.” Available only from Target beginning April 23, the exclusive version of the album includes three bonus tracks and is available now for pre-order at Target.com.
Bonus songs on Target’s exclusive edition of the album include “Melancholy Baby,” a new, original track from Bublé, a swing-style mix of the album’s hit first single “It’s a Beautiful Day,” and a cover of the classic “Be My Baby.
“This is the third time Target has partnered with Michael Bublé to bring exclusive music to his widespread fan following,” said Anne Stanchfield, divisional merchandise manager of entertainment, Target. “’To Be Loved’ is bound to be a must-have album and fans can once again look to Target for more of their favorite music from such a talented musician.”
“A lot of the material on ‘To Be Loved’ was inspired by my personal life, and it includes some tracks that are edgier for me,” said Michael Bublé. “Teaming up with Target again on a deluxe edition of the album gives me the opportunity to offer my devoted fans a little extra – three bonus tracks that I enjoyed recording while making the album.”
“To Be Loved” features a mix of original songs, co-written by Bublé, and standards from artists including the Bee Gees, Dean Martin and Elvis Presley. Produced by Bublé’s longtime collaborator Bob Rock, the album is a follow up to the 2011 release “Christmas,” which sold seven million copies internationally and was the number two selling album of 2011. Later this year, Bublé is scheduled to perform 10 sellout shows at London’s 02 Arena beginning June 30.
More information about Michael Bublé’s Target exclusive album will be available on ABullseyeView.com leading up to the April 23 launch.
