Midler, who was most recently on Broadway in John Logan's I'll Eat You Last: A Chat With Sue Mengers, will release her first studio recording in almost eight years Nov. 4. The album spotlights songs made famous by such girl groups as The Boswell Sisters, The Andrew Sisters and TLC.
Tony winner Marc Shaiman is producing the recording, which will be released on Warner Bros. Records.
“I have loved the sound of females harmonizing since I was a kid; I always sang along. Didn't we all?” Midler previously told Billboard. “I think the idea that you could become part of the group was the thing that endeared me to the girl groups. You weren't just singing along, you were THERE!”
Midler added, “Since this is a kind of overview of girl groups, I wanted to re-arrange some of the really popular songs and put a new spin on them; 'Can't Hurry Love' being the most extreme example."

1. Be My Baby
2. One Fine Day
