(Just Like) Starting Over, was the first single released in 1980 from Lennons album, Double Fantasy, and the first new recording Lennon had released since 1975. Lennon chose it because it was the most appropriate following his five-year absence from the recording industry.

(Just Like) Starting Over is profound and represents a pivotal time in Barons life. As chronicled in her book, I Called Myself Cassandra, Baron is candid about the heartache she suffered when she was estranged from her husband due to infidelity on both sides. After two years of turmoil, the couple decided to make amends and begin anew. The result is a stronger and more intimate relationship. Baron describes that time in her life as a lesson that allowed her to recognize the gifts in her life and the message of a new sunrise. All of the songs from her debut album, Feeling Good At Any Age, (Baron is 67 years old) echo these same experiences. I wanted to make the songs of this album, including Feeling Good, like theyre chapters in a book, to try to really capture what Im thinking about in that season of life, she explains. This record, to me, is probably one of the most interesting subject-wise. Its a bit retrospective and honors musicians and classics of the past.

Barons debut album will be officially released in its entirety on July 12, 2014. With the official release of the Filipino-singers album, others will discover what Lane calls an amalgam of sound that is genuinely fresh to the ears.

Barons singular ability to blend tradition with contemporary color comes to the fore on this set of beguiling cover songs, which simultaneously capture the vintage, sepia-toned feel of her experiences with smoky and sultry sophistication of smooth jazz and retro arrangements.

Barons smooth voice evokes a sense of nostalgia in (Just Like) Starting Over. Her voice is reminiscent of 40s or 50s jazz and blues singers performing in retro venues into a vintage microphone. (Just Like) Starting Over is available on iTunes and MTV. For more information, visit: Lourdes Duque Baron Official Web Site
