Multiple Grammy Award®-winning singer and legendary performer Bette Midler returns to the studio to release “It’s The Girls,” a stunning new album that pays tribute to girl groups through the ages. “It’s The Girls” is a jaunty and celebratory collection of some of the greatest harmonies performed by girl groups such as The Ronettes, The Boswell Sisters, The Andrew Sisters, The Chiffons as well as Motown acts like Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, and The Marvelettes, among others.

“A long time ago I fell in love with voices in harmony,” said Midler. “In particular, the sound of female voices singing together. There were so many great girl groups in those days, I still listen as avidly as I ever did. This record is a small attempt to honor them for all the joy they brought to me and the world.”

“It’s The Girls” reunites Bette Midler with long-time collaborator and Award-winning composer Marc Shaiman who produced the album. “It’s The Girls” features 15 songs that span time from The Andrews Sisters’ original performance of “Bei Mir Bist Du Schön” in 1937 to R&B group TLC’s 1994 hit song, “Waterfalls.” On the title track, Midler offers a brilliant rendition of The Boswell Sisters (known for their unpredictable harmonies and key changes) tempo-shifting pop classic “It’s The Girl.”  The album effortlessly showcases Midler’s distinctive and versatile vocal range while honoring timeless classic melodic harmonies.

One of the world's best-loved and most versatile entertainers, Bette Midler has garnered accolades in all quarters of show business. She's earned four Grammy Awards including Song of the Year (1989: "Wind Beneath My Wings"; 1990: "From A Distance") and Record of the Year (1989: "Wind Beneath My Wings"); two Academy Award nominations, three Emmy Awards, one Tony Award, three Golden Globe Awards, and nine American Comedy Awards.
