Hooray for Love

Hooray For Love YouTubeCurtis Stigers releases his eleventh album “Hooray For Love,” on April 29, 2014. The album includes classics from the Great American Songbook including such gems from the repertoire as George and Ira Gershwin’s “Love is Here to Stay,” Jerome Kern’s “The Way You Look Tonight,” and “If I Were A Bell,” from Guys and Dolls, as well as three songs written or co-written by Stigers, including the title track, “Hooray For Love,” “Give Your Heart to Me,” and “A Matter of Time.” Of his new album, Stigers comments, “On almost all of my Concord records, I’ve done a standard or two and lot of songs by modern songwriters. This time around, I’ve flipped it and recorded mostly standards with a few modern songs.”

The Making of “Let’s Go Out Tonight”

This is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Let’s Go Out Tonight. A departure from Stigers’ previous projects, this album sidesteps the Great American Songbook completely. Rather, it includes a vibrant cross-section of pop, folk, country and soul songs from songwriters ranging from Bob Dylan, Eddie Floyd and Richard Thompson to Jeff Tweedy, Hayes Carll and David Poe, whose “Everyone Loves Lovers” was crafted expressly for Stigers.
