Relax Everybody - Michael Buble Is NOT Retiring From Music


Michael Buble

Michael Buble has dismissed recent reports suggesting that he’s about to retire from music, saying that he was misquoted in an interview.

The Canadian-born singer told the Associated Press on Tuesday (October 16th) that he was mis-represented in a chat with the Daily Mail last week on October 13th. The paper claimed that Buble was on the verge of packing in music after the release of his upcoming eighth album Love, and that it was because of his young son Noah’s cancer diagnosis.

“I'll keep going until the news of my death comes out, which will probably be fake too,” he said, laughing. “At that point, you're really famous now. Things are really going well on this record. Buble is hanging with Elvis… Buble and Elvis having fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches together.”

Michael Buble

Crooning definitely seemed to go out of fashion in the mid-fifties. With the rise of pop music and rock 'n' roll, there simply wasn't room for such jazz sounds. Michael Buble's style of vocal has been confined to the lounge for so many years with only the occasional resurgence (Barry Manilow, Harry Connick Jr. etc.), but he's been the one to bring it to the arenas of this generation.

As it stands, he's pretty much the only artist who has maintained the cool factor - on a solo level at least. We're not forgetting Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett's number one standards hit 'Cheek To Cheek', but old Tony couldn't have expected to see much chart action without the pop princess.
