Entitled "Love Is the Answer," the CD will arrive on the Columbia Records label Sept. 29. The new recording, press notes state, "presents the artist as a cabaret and jazz singer of emotional clarity, depth and maturity, offering the listener a warm and intimate selection of late night meditations on love's powers, heartbreaks and solaces."

The new disc provides Streisand the opportunity to work with Grammy-winning Canadian jazz artist Diana Krall (piano) and her quartet (guitar, bass, drums). Orchestrations were penned by Grammy-winning arranger Johnny Mandel.

Song titles have yet to be announced.

Barbra Streisand starred on Broadway in I Can Get It for You Wholesale and Funny Girl, earning Tony Award nominations for both performances. She received a 1970 Special Tony Award.
