Patti Murin and Colin Donnell to Release First Joint Album SOMETHING STUPID

Patti Murin and Colin Donnell to Release First Joint Album SOMETHING STUPID

The album will feature songs by Bruce Springsteen, Sara Bareilles, Paul Simon, Jason Robert Brown, and more.

People has reported that married Broadway couple Patti Murin and Colin Donnell will be releasing their first joint album! Titled Something Stupid after the 1967 Carson and Gaile song, the album will be released on November 18.

Pre-order/Pre-save the new album here.

The pair also announced that they are expecting their second child together, a baby girl, due mid-April.

Conceived during lockdown, Murin and Donnell engineered their own vocals for the record from their newly formed home studio. The forthcoming album goes far beyond the couple's well-known musical roots to include a variety of genres and beloved songs by Bruce Springsteen, Sara Bareilles, Jason Robert Brown, Paul Simon, and more.

The eclectic selection of songs, comprised of solos and duets, touches upon the themes of searching, longing, and finding love.

Murin shared, "Colin and I have always talked about doing a record together, even though we have such different styles; I'm so musical theater and Colin is more in the rock genre. And what we wound up with a collection of songs that, while quite eclectic in their selection, presents itself as the ultimate compromise between our two styles."

They previewed the 12-track album in February 2022 with the release of Murin's, "The Next Right Thing" from Frozen II. Murin originated the role of 'Princess Anna' in the acclaimed Broadway production of Frozen in 2018.
