The Peter Asher-produced set features songs by Randy Newman, J.D. Souther, Willie Nelson, the Bee Gees, Wayne Newton and others. Recording them, Malo says, presented a different kind of creative challenge than he's encountered before.
"It's a different game, a different mentality, a different approach," Malo explains. "I had always written all my songs, and so therefore I could sing 'em however I wanted. Now, working as an interpreter of somebody else's songs, it's a difficult process but really fun. I enjoyed myself immensely just being the singer, being a vocalist and a stylist and an interpreter."
Malo is also working on an album of country covers he hopes to release in 2007, as well as his second solo album of original material.
