Entitled "What Matters Most - Barbra Streisand Sings the Lyrics of Alan and Marilyn Bergman," the CD arrives in stores Aug. 23.

The new album, which was also produced by Streisand, features ten Bergman songs the actress-director has never previously recorded. Among the song titles are "The Windmills of Your Mind," "So Many Stars," "Nice 'n' Easy" and "That Face."

In a statement, Streisand said, "Alan and Marilyn have a remarkable gift for expressing affairs of the heart." The Bergmans added, "When we write a song, we hear Barbra. She makes the connection from the heart to the mind, and it emerges through her voice."

Also available Aug. 23 is a deluxe edition of "What Matters Most" including ten additional, previously released performances of Streisand singing Bergman classics like "The Way We Were," "You Don’t Bring Me Flowers," "Papa Can You Hear Me?" and "Pieces of Dreams."
