The original London cast recording of Kyle Riabko’s Close to You: Bacharach Reimagined was released earlier this year from Ghostlight Records.

The album debuted on various streaming services September 23.

Riabko will play two Joe’s Pub concerts October 17-18.

In anticipation of the concerts, Playbill.com is exclusively debuting a new album trailer for Riabko’s Close to You: Bacharach Reimagined.

Originally presented at New York Theatre Workshop in 2013 under the title What’s It All About?, the production re-imagines and celebrates more than 30 Burt Bacharach classics. After being introduced to Bacharach at a Los Angeles recording studio, Riabko created a series of demos with the composer's blessing. "It’s brilliant. Kyle has done something truly unique with my music. I loved it!" Bacharach said . The album also features special bonus tracks of these original demos.

The cast album captures the London production that debuted at the Menier Chocolate Factory and transferred to the West End's Criterion last fall. Close to You: Bacharach Reimagined features Kyle Riabko (vocals, guitars, keyboards, ukulele), Daniel Bailen (vocals, electric bass, upright bass, cello, guitar), Greg Coulson (vocals, guitars, keyboards), Anastacia McCleskey (vocals), Stephanie McKeon (vocals), Renato Paris (vocals, keyboards) and James Williams (percussion). The album is produced and arranged by Kyle Riabko with David Lane Seltzer of Entertainment 360 serving as executive producer.

The 28-page booklet includes a note from Riabko, liner notes, production and studio photography and opening night photos of Bacharach with the cast.
