Idina Menzel announces new album & premieres new song!

Let the storm rage on! Broadway megastar Idina Menzel has revealed that her new album 'idina.' will be released on 23rd September 2016.

Speaking during a Facebook Live in the early hours of this morning, Menzel revealed that the album of original material is now avaliable for pre-order. She then premiered an acoustic version of original song 'I See You' which can be downloaded immediately when you pre-order the album on iTunes.

"I've had a crazy couple of years" Menzel said, "some good stuff, some bad stuff. I got in the studio with some of the most amazing people - songwriters, producers - and poured my heart out and used my music as a place to kinda figure a few things out. It's a really personal album."
