Tony Award winner Linda Lavin will release a new solo album, titled Love Notes, March 27 as both a digital and physical release. Pre-orders of the digital version include an immediate download of the track "Stars Would Fall," a new song written by Joel Lindsey and Wayne Haun.
Lavin is joined on the album by her longtime collaborator, pianist and singer Billy Stritch, leading a band that also includes Aaron Weinstein on violin and mandolin, Tom Hubbard on bass, Jeff Barone on guitar, and Daniel Glass on drums. Stritch has produced Love Notes, with Haun serving as executive producer.
A Tony winner for her performance in 1987's Broadway Bound, Lavin also earned Tony nominations for performances in The Last of the Red Hot Lovers, The Diary of Anne Frank, The Tale of the Allergist's Wife, Collected Stories, and The Lyons. She also starred in the title role of TV's Alice for nine years on CBS, and co-starred in Sean Saves the World with Sean Hayes.
Lavin will next be seen on the New York stage in Atlantic Theatre Company's The Bedwetter, written by Sarah Silverman, Adam Schlesinger, and Joshua Harmon. The new musical begins performances April 25.
