PAUL ANKA SWINGS
Paul Anka marks his Verve-label debut with Rock Swings, as he covers the music of a younger generation. The 14-track set features orchestra-backed versions of Soundgarten’s Black Hole Sun, Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit, and Michael Jackson’s The Way You Make Me Feel. The CD was previously released internationally some months back and had reached number 1 on the German album chart. The set also features songs by Eric Clapton, Van Halen, Billy Idol, the Pet Shop Boys and Oasis. Anka will be on tour throughout the remainder of the year, with a new set of dates to begin on May 29 at Harrah’s in St. Louis.
