Barbra Streisand announced on Friday (June 11) that she will drop the 10-track Release Me 2 on Aug. 6, an album featuring previously unheard songs from the singer’s personal vault written by Burt Bacharach, Hal David, Barry Gibb, Paul Williams, Randy Newman, Michel Legrand and Alan & Marilyn Bergman, Harold Arlen and Carole King.

“A lovely walk down memory lane… a chance to revisit, and in some cases, add a finishing instrumental touch to songs that still resonate for me in meaningful ways,” Streisand said in a statement. The follow-up to 2012’s Release Me will feature duets with Kermit the Frog (“Rainbow Connection”), Willie Nelson (“I’d Want It To Be You”) and Gibb (“If Only You Were Mine”), as well as unreleased versions of “You Light Up My Life,” “Be Aware, “Sweet Forgiveness,” “Living Without You,” “One Day (A Prayer),” “Right As the Rain” and “One You’ve Been in Love.”
