ROLLINGSTONE.COM: 70 Most Anticipated Albums of 2020

Album: Untitled standards collection
Release Date: Late February
Never one to rush out new work, Taylor has an unusually productive year ahead. He’ll release an audio-only memoir, Break Shot, via the Audible company, as well as a new studio album. Talking to RS in 2015 about his favorite music, Taylor mentioned Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, and Randy Newman, along with jazz icons Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan — “the stuff I’ve always loved.” Reflecting that passion, he’s finally recorded his own collection of pre-rock pop standards — acoustic, JT-style versions of classics like “Moon River,” “Pennies from Heaven,” and “God Bless the Child.”
