Gloria Estefan has returned to longtime label Sony Music Entertainment for a multi-album deal, beginning with the release of English-language album "The Standards" this fall, reports Billboard.

The album is a set of American standards, as the name implies. The collection will include "The Way You Look Tonight" and "Good Morning Heartache," which she performed at her first "Tonight Show" appearance in 1985 with Miami Sound Machine.

Estefan was with Sony for 30 years, both as a soloist and with Miami Sound Machine, releasing albums in both English and Spanish. She left in 2011 and released "Miss Little Havana" on Verve Music Group's adult-contemporary label Forecast and distributed through parent company Universal Music Group. In the U.S., the physical album was sold exclusively through Target.

Now Estefan has returned to Sony and will be distributed through both its Latin and Masterworks arms.

"Gloria is one-of-a-kind -- in any language, in any genre," said Afo Verde, Chairman and CEO of Sony Music Entertainment for the Latin Region, Spain and Portugal.

"Masterworks is thrilled to be a marketing partner with Sony Latin and Gloria Estefan on this very special project," added Bogdan Roscic, President of Sony Classical and Sony Masterworks. "It represents another landmark in the career of an artist who continues to be a creative inspiration in all styles of popular music."
