He’s the triple threat: A legendary singer, songwriter and guitarist who has achieved fame around the world over three decades of excellence. And now the great Jonathan Butler is planning to return in August with a brand new album celebrating the music of Burt Bacharach.

Close To You will feature well-loved songs invigorated with unique interpretations that resonate as strongly as the originals. Polished to an easy, smooth shine Jonathan presents this collection to his international audience, crossing many musical genres. Jonathan says: “This record was inspired by my fiancé Nadira Kimberly. At home one night, we played and sang together as we listened to 'Close To You' by the amazing Burt Bacharach. This really opened the door for me to do this amazing man’s music. In 1975 I was 13 years old when my first single was released, 'Please Stay' by none other than Burt Bacharach. It's like I've come full circle.” 

Jonathan has just released the first single from the album, and it is a terrific version of the very appropriate song, “What The World Needs Now Is Love.” It’s a memorable return for a long time favorite. Check it out below!
