Bill Murray has a classical album out this summer

Hollywood star and comedian Bill Murray is recording a classical album.

The 66-year-old actor is working on a new project called “New Worlds,” in which he sings and performs literary readings over chamber music from a trio led by cellist Jan Vogler, reported ‘New York Times’.

The program has him singing Gershwin, West Side Story, and Stephen Foster and reading selections from Whitman, Hemingway, and Twain while the ensemble, which also features Mira Wang on violin and Vanessa Perez on piano, plays Schubert, Bach, and Piazzolla.

The live show, said to “explore themes of American history and identity,” will premiere at Festival Napa Valley on 7/20, followed by a North America tour and an album to be released in August.

Incidentally, Murray’s also got a new collaboration with Paul Shaffer out on vinyl for Record Store Day.
