Bette Midler’s New Album is Super Girly

Bette Midler Girls

Bette Midler has announced the release of her first studio album in eight years, and she’s going back to her roots to pay tribute to artists that influenced her in her early years.

The album, entitled ‘It’s The Girls’ features the Divine Miss M singing the songs of some of the worlds’ best renowned girl groups.

Midler told Billboard she’d be singing a wide variety of works from forgotten legends of the 1960s to 90s icons.

“The ’60s were the height of girl-group frenzy, so there were a lot of songs to chose from, but from the ’90s on, my favorites were TLC and Destiny’s Child. ‘Waterfalls’ was a heartbreaker, especially if you were a mom, and it had a big effect on me. I never thought I would have the nerve to sing it, but we had an idea for it that works, and I am so glad I took the chance.”
