Music: Albums - Duets, Paul Anka

Paul Anka is the veteran singer songwriter you could be forgiven for not knowing, but whose work you most certainly will.

The Canadian crooner’s latest album features him duetting on famous songs, some of which he helped pen, with more famous artists.

So the iconic song My Way he co-wrote is here along with Frank Sinatra’s dulcet tones, and Michael Jackson sings with Anka on the track they created together, This Is It.

Other stars he performs with include Celine Dion, Michael Buble, Dolly Parton and Sir Tom Jones on She’s A Lady.

The 71-year-old adopts different styles for the tracks which feature new vocals or instrumentation, so some have a Latin beat and others a lush orchestration, but all fit perfectly into a night of easy listening.

Rating: 7/10
