Grammy, Tony, Emmy Award-winning recording artist Barry Manilow will release 15 MINUTES his powerful new album filled with all original compositions on June 14.
After having recorded six critically acclaimed albums of songs written by the greatest songwritesrs of all time - from Gershwin to Bacharach, Manilow returns at last to his true passioin - songwriting. Manilow teams up once again with lyricist Enoch Anderson for this astounding new work.
Inspired by the Andy Warhol quote that "in the future, everybody will be world famous for fifteen minutes," this energetic and exciting guitar-driven pop album explores the perils and pinnacles of fame's double-edged sword. More than two years in the making 15 MINUTES is set for release on June 14.
"Fame and success are something we all strive for, and yet when we get it how do we behave? That quesiton jumps out at us daily from manazine covers, TV news and online gossip sites. In my world of entertainment, I've watched perfectly decent and talented people achieve the success they've been striving for only to crash and burn as their star rises. It happens in every walk of life, not only in the entertainment fied; in sports, in policts and in daily life when the assistant manager gets promoted at the gorcery store. It's something that conintues to fascinate us, and for me it represented an exciting musical journey to explore, " explained Manilow.
Making a guest appearance on 15 MINUTES is young Nataly Dawn, lead singer of the white-hot group "Pomplamoose." Her rendition of "Letter From A Fan" is both innocent and eerie.
15 MINUTES, produced by Manilow and Michael Lloyd is a captivating tale of someone who achieves fame, blows it and begins again.

While I bought other popular music of the time, Manilow is the only I continued to buy records from. Jazz, bluegrass, blues, folk and classical dominate my musical listening to this day. Even artist such as the Bee Gees who I respect I found I could listen to so much when I heard a new album by. Manilow is pop, the critics have their point at times,and he missteps from time to time. Not this time.
I don't care for the songbooks Manilow does, although done very well it doesn't represent the true artist that Manilow can be. And the last Manilow record I even found any affection for was "Mayflower", but without a doubt "15 Minutes" is better and outside of "2:00 A.M. Cafe" and perhaps "Showstoppers" (I do have a weak spot for musicals) this is is his best album without Ron Dante.
It's a song a cycle, think of as an opera with the music only. It's characters, not Manilow. It's not real, even if borrowed a bit from real life. It's not Manilow who is the winner that goes down, or detest his fans. In interviews he says he's been there, but not in the extremes, and he said the last couple tracks like "Trainwreck" he thankfully never experienced at all. Yes the lyrics have some bitter moments, but than life has some bitter moments. Good music lyrics reflect life, and these reflect the life of some modern day celebrities, and even some people I know who aren't, for good or bad.
The music is typical Manilow pop, yet it has been so long since he's done that it sounds fresh to me. There is a bit of guitar, but than if you listen to his first six albums the guitar wasn't absent from "Flashy Lady" to "Who's Been Sleeping In My Bed", it was only with the leaving of Ran Dante as his co-producer the guitar really started to disappeared except for his 50's phase with "Here Comes the Night", and "Oh Julie" which "Now It For Real" from this album reminds me of. The use of the guitar is welcomed back by this long time fan. The songs are a mix of the ballads that many know him best for, and simple ballads such as "Trainwreck" which he has always done. There are up tempo numbers from the rock type tracks to the disco/dance type tracks. All have been part of Manilow's arsenal for so long that anybody who is fan for years won't be shocked by anything, yet it's a new twist on the old sounds (the remake "He's a Star" doesn't sound like it's stuck in the 70's like the original "She's A Star" does yet I still find myself drawn to the "Tryin' to Keep the Feeling" version.).
It's not chalked filled with great songs, rather very good songs. If you like Manilow's pop original side, I can't see why you wouldn't like this. But if all you like are his songbooks or him belting out ballads (which was always just a song or two per record), than well this might not for you - but then I doubt any of the early Manilow record are either.
This is a great album....all brand new songs....not another album of Manilow hits with one different song.
The album is really great and it is current! I like almost every song on it!
