Joe Pesci, who just came out of retirement to co-star in the movieThe Irishman, is also reactivating his musical career.
The album Pesci...Still Singing goes on sale November 29th, two days after the film debuts on Netflix. It features Adam Levine of Maroon 5-- with a highlight being Pesci and Levine duetting on "My Cherie Amour."
Pesci has bona fide musical chops. In the late 1950s, he introduced two struggling New Jersey musicians to each other.Frankie Valli and Bob Gaudio formed The Four Seasons, beginning one of the longest-lasting and most successful partnerships in music. Not surprisingly, there's an homage to his buddies on Pesci...Still Singing: "Baby Girl" is a samba-beat medley of Valli's classics "I Made a Fool of Myself" and "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You."
