Jeff Goldblum has teamed up with Sharon Van Etten on a cover of Irving Berlin’s 1936 classic, “Let’s Face the Music and Dance.”
The duo first premiered their sultry collab at Glastonbury earlier this year, backed by Goldbum’s longtime band, the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra. On the track, Van Etten delivers sensual vocals over old-school jazz stylings. “There may be trouble ahead / But while there’s music and moonlight / And love and romance / Let’s face the music and dance,” she sings.
Their rendition of “Let’s Face the Music and Dance” will appear on Goldbum’s forthcoming album, I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This. “I’m crying with ecstasy over this new album,” Goldblum said in a statement. “Creatively, I’m happy as a clam. This collection of cohorts (cream of the crop), with whom I get to cavort, is [out of] this cosmos.”
The other collaborators in question include Grammy winner Fiona Apple, English singer-songwriter Anna Calvi and more. I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This is due out November 1 via Decca Records.
