She’s not being a funny girl. Streisand is back with a bevy of movie stars.
Chris Pine. Seth MacFarlane. Hugh Jackman. These three names along are enough to inspire images of acting greatness. Add to the list Banderas, Baldwin, Foxx, and more Hollywood A-Listers, and you’ve got the special guest stars on Barbara Streisand’s latest album, Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway.

The album will be released on August 26th, but if your curiosity can’t wait that long to see the full track listing, take a look below:
- “At the Ballet”: Barbra Streisand with Anne Hathaway and Daisy Ridley
- “Loving You”: Barbra Streisand with Patrick Wilson
- “Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)”: Barbra Streisand with Anthony Newley
- “The Best Thing That Ever Has Happened”: Barbra Streisand with Alec Baldwin
- “Any Moment Now”: Barbra Streisand with Hugh Jackman
- “Pure Imagination”: Barbra Streisand with Seth MacFarlane
- “Take Me to the World”: Barbra Streisand with Antonio Banderas
- “I’ll Be Seeing You”/ “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face”: Barbra Streisand with Chris Pine
- “Climb Ev’ry Mountain”: Barbra Streisand with Jamie Foxx
Personally, I’m stoked to hear Chris Pine the most, especially after seeing him in Into the Woods. Seth MacFarlane is also grabbing my attention with one of my favorite movie songs of all time, “Pure Imagination” from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Only 2 months and 16 days until we can hear them croon…
However, the musical theatre gods have smiled on us and bestowed a preview on our lowly ears. Streisand recently released an audio video of her singing “At The Ballet” (A Chorus Line) with Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables, The Intern) and Daisy Ridley (Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens).
BONUS: We also get a behind-the-scenes look at the recording of “At the Ballet” on Streisand’s YouTube channel. Both videos are displayed below for your listening pleasure!
