The upcoming album spotlights songs made famous by such girl groups as The Boswell Sisters, The Andrew Sisters and TLC. Tony winner Marc Shaiman is producing the recording, which will be released on Warner Bros. Records.

“I have loved the sound of females harmonizing since I was a kid; I always sang along. Didn't we all?” Midler previously told Billboard. “I think the idea that you could become part of the group was the thing that endeared me to the girl groups. You weren't just singing along, you were THERE!”

Midler added, “Since this is a kind of overview of girl groups, I wanted to re-arrange some of the really popular songs and put a new spin on them; 'Can't Hurry Love' being the most extreme example."

The complete track list follows:

1. Be My Baby
2. One Fine Day
3. Bei Mir Bist Du Schon
4. Baby It's You
5. Tell Him
6. He's Sure the Boy I Love (duet with Darlene Love)
7. Mr. Sandman
8. Come and Get These Memories
9. Too Many Fish in the Sea
10. Teach Me Tonight
11. Waterfalls
12. You Can't Hurry Love
13. Give Him a Great Big Kiss
14. Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow
15. It's the Girl
