Michael Buble To Launch New Fragrance With Facebook Gig
Singer Michael Buble will launch his new women's fragrance with a special online gig.
The Canadian crooner has set up a Facebook concert on 24 August to promote the new scent, which was originally primed for a release in June.
The eau de parfum will hit department stores in the U.S., Canada, Germany, the United Kingdom and Australia, before expanding to South Asia.
Talking about his namesake fragrance, which features notes of vanilla, white amber and patchouli, heart notes of rose, peony, wild jasmine and lily of the valley and top notes of bergamot Italy, lemon Italy and red fruits, Michael says, "I’ve always loved fine fragrance and once I committed to this endeavour, I immersed myself in learning the fascinating process of what it takes to actually create just the right scent along with unique packaging that reflects my taste and imagination of the perfect, romantic fragrance.
"It's no secret that I’m a hopeless romantic, which is reflected in the music I write, the songs I sing and the shows I’ve performed around the world. I wanted to collaborate on creating a fragrance that represents the same sentiments as my music."
Buble will perform songs from his upcoming album, Nobody But Me, at a launch event in New York City, which will stream live on his Facebook page.
The album, which features Michael's renditions of Nina Simone's classic jazz tune My Baby Just Cares For Me and Brian Wilson's Beach Boys hit God Only Knows, will be released on 21 October.
Nobody But Me, Buble's first album in three years and his ninth studio album, will also feature the guest talents of Meghan Trainor and Black Thought of The Roots, and includes three original songs, written by the singer.
"I don't know that I've ever had this much fun working on an album," he says in a statement issued to WENN. "It was especially thrilling to collaborate with my band, who understand that I want to sound better than I've ever sounded. I'm also very proud of the new songs."
Buble's talents will also be on display in a new movie, Tour Stop 148, which will hit cinemas for one night only on 27 September. The film features performance footage from the singer's sold out To Be Loved Tour and "a close-up view of the behind-the-scenes team that surrounded the singer along with their stories and sacrifices as the show moved from city to city."
Two million fans caught Buble live on the To Be Loved Tour, which featured 173 shows in 39 countries.
