Diamond Names New Album
By Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.
Neil Diamond's next studio album will be a self-titled affair, the first for the performer in his 40-year career. As previously reported, "Neil Diamond" will be released Nov. 8 via Columbia and is being produced by Rick Rubin. The set has been pushed back twice to give the label more time for set up.
"It's a very stripped-down, beautiful, emotional album," Rubin told Billboard.com last night (Aug. 18) before the first of three Diamond shows at New York's Madison Square Garden. He added that several tracks feature string arrangements that were being completed in the studio this week.
