Preview Haley Reinhart and Casey Abrams Duet ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’
Abrams tells Entertainment Weekly the song is “straight up a jazz standard” that “reminds you of the fireplace.” A short audio clip has been released, showing the vocalists trading lines on a classic-sounding recording of the 1936 duet. Fans can download the song at digital music outlets on Nov. 21.
Artists from Bing Crosby to Ray Charles to Bette Midler have performed the song over the years, while in more recent times, covers of the song were recorded by Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey (when they were married) and the ‘Glee‘ Cast.
Reinhart, the third-place finisher on ‘Idol’ this year, has a record deal with Interscope. She tells EW that things are coming along. “I’m working my butt off right now, just getting in there with a bunch of different writers and producers every day,” she says, adding that her sound will be “soul and R&B mixed, with some jazziness in there.”
