Ghostlight Records releases Tony Award nominee Melissa Errico's new, jazz-inflected recording of Oscar-winning composer Michel Legrand’s song “Hurry Home” December 8.
“Hurry Home” tells of love in a long marriage. With lyrics by Marilyn and Alan Bergman, the song was originally sung by Errico under the credits of the 2013 film Max Rose. This new, intimate, jazz-inflected acoustic setting uses a small band arranged by producer Rob Mathes, and features guitarist and frequent Errico sideman Ben Butler.
She made the official video for the release, which can be viewed above, available to Playbill.
Errico said, “Making the video as we did, there was no place to hide. It was just me and the song, alone in intimate black and white. The director [Gary Gardner] created a space for all my thoughts. It was inspired by the photograph that Brigitte Lacombe took for the album art, and we had such a good time filming it.”

Legrand (composer of film scores to Yentl, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, and The Thomas Crown Affair) first collaborated with Errico when she starred in his Broadway musical, Amour. Errico earned a Tony Award nomination for Best Actress for her performance in that show. She then recorded an album of Legrand’s music, Legrand Affair, backed by the composer conducting his own orchestral arrangements with the Brussels Philharmonic.
Errico has been a special guest performer on Playbill’s Broadway on the High Seas cruises. Cabins are available for Playbill’s Broadway on the High Seas July 2018 cruise to Iceland, accompanied by Judy Kuhn, Christine Ebersole, Rob McClure, Jarrod Spector, Carmen Cusack, and Sierra Boggess.
