Eight-time Grammy Award winning R&B singer Natalie Cole will hit the road in October for 11 concerts, starting on October 7 in Indiana, PA, and wrapping on October 23 in Windsor, ONT. Cole’s new album, “Still Unforgettable,” a 14-song collection of American pop standards, drops on September 9.

The album has been a long time in the making for Cole. It’s a follow up to her 1991 album “Unforgettable…With Love” that included a studio created duet with her late father Nat King Cole on the title tack. The album spent five weeks at No. 1 on the pop charts, earned five Grammy awards (including Song, Record and Album of the Year) and sold more than 14 million copies worldwide.

An album she has been waiting years to record, “Still Unforgettable,” is Cole’s first producer credit and was recorded in the legendary Capitol Studios in Hollywood, CA. The album features Cole lending her voice to classic tracks, including “The Best Is Yet To Come,” “Nice ‘N’ Easy” and “Something’s Gotta Give,” as well as a another memorable duet with Nat King Cole on “Walkin’ My Baby Back Home.”

To re-create the feel and flow of “Unforgettable…” for the new album, Cole said in a statement that she delved into the great American Songbook “looking for more treasures…and I was not disappointed.”
