Standards includes a number of legendary session musicians and a full orchestra. It was recorded at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, California. “This is the album I always wanted to make,” said Seal in an official statement. “I grew up listening to music from the Rat Pack era, so recording these timeless songs was a lifelong dream. It was a true honor to collaborate with the same musicians who performed with Frank Sinatra and so many of my favorite artists, in the very same recording studios where the magic was first made.”
