Jeff Goldblum And Miley Cyrus Join Forces On New Single, ‘The Thrill Is Gone’, Taken From His Upcoming Album ‘I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This’

Always full of surprises, Hollywood icon & jazz pianist Jeff Goldblum today announces he has teamed up with global superstar singer, songwriter and actress Miley Cyrus for his new song, a cover of Chet Baker’s, ‘The Thrill is Gone,’ to be released on November 1. The song features on his new album, ‘I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This’, the follow-up to his debut, ‘The Capitol Studio Sessions’, which he released last year, along with his long-term band, The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra. The new album will also be released on November 1, through Decca Records.

When planning his second album, Jeff suggested the collaboration to Miley. A seemingly unlikely duo, the pair are friends, and Miley’s powerful and characterful voice is sensitively accompanied by Jeff in his inimitable style.

Jeff has been playing the track for years with his long-time band The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, but has been waiting for the perfect soloist with whom to record the song, which he has found in Miley.

Speaking about the forthcoming release, Jeff says:

“Hearing the one and only Miley Cyrus sing one of our arrangements is both surreal and mesmerizing. I can’t stop listening. It’s perfect.”

This sultry single from the A-listers will appear on Goldblum’s forthcoming album, entitled ‘I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This’, which features an array of remarkable duet partners alongside Miley Cyrus, including Sharon Van Etten and Anna Calvi. Recorded with The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, the follow-up to his No.1 jazz album last year will also be released on 1st November on Decca Records.
