Dionne Warwick To Receive Lifetime Achievement Award From Recording Academy

Dionne Warwick To Receive Lifetime Achievement Award From Recording Academy

Legendary Grammy Award winner DIONNE WARWICK will release her first new album in 5 years, "SHE'S BACK", on May 10th. Produced by her son Damon Elliot, the album will be released via his Kind Music and Entertainment One (eOne). The lead-off single will be an updated version of the Burt Bacharach/Hal David classic, "What The World Needs Now Is Love", which Dionne recorded during the 1960s.

In addition to ten tracks of new songs as well of remakes of pop/soul gems, "She's Back" will be packaged with a bonus disc of Ms. Warwick's 1998 album, "Dionne Sings Dionne", which features her greatest hits, remastered for this package. "She's Back" also includes duets with Kenny Lattimore ("What Color Is Love"), Musiq Soulchild ("Am I Dreaming?) as well as Bone, Thugs & Harmony's Krayzie Bone ("Déjà Vu") .

"She's Back" is Ms. Warwick's 36th full-length studio recording, and her first dedicated R&B/soul album in fifty years, since the release of Dionne's stellar 1969 Scepter LP, Soulful, which she co-produced in Memphis with the late Chips Moman (who'd manned the boards for Dionne's then-label mate, B.J. Thomas).

Ms. Warwick is one of several legends to be chosen to receive one of the Grammy Awards' highest honors this year - the Lifetime Achievement Award. She joins music greats such as George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic, Billy Eckstine, Donny Hathaway, Julio Iglesias as well as Sam & Dave in this bestowed class. The honorees were mentioned in the Grammy Awards live telecast earlier this month. A separate award presentation ceremony and concert celebrating the honorees will be held the day after the release of She's Back, on May 11, 2019, in Los Angeles.

Additionally, Dionne will begin a highly anticipated concert residency in Las Vegas on April 4, 2019.
