Representatives for the multi-award-winning artist confirmed to Billboard that a second "Duets" album was underway, but could not confirm a release date or who would appear on the album with Streisand.
Attitude Magazine cited a post on Grammy-winning producer Walter Afanasieff's website that stated such artists as Willie Nelson, Usher, Robin Thicke, Lionel Richie, Yo Yo Ma, Blake Shelton, Stevie Wonder, Josh Groban, Michael Bublè, Lady Gaga, Bette Midler, Andrea Bocelli, Beyoncè, Billy Joel, John Mayer and more were involved. The post has since been removed.
"My apologies for releasing information and photos of a project that is in the making and has not been finalized. I will keep you posted on the progress of this extraordinary Duets album when the time is right. Stay tuned," Afanasieff said in a follow-up post.
Streisand's first "Duets" album featured new and existing duets with Celine Dion, Ray Charles, Barry Gibb, Judy Garland, Donna Summer, Frank Sinatra, Barry Manilow, Michael Crawford, Josh Groban and more. Her recent albums include "Release Me" and the live album of her Back to Brooklyn concerts.
