Michael Buble returns with new album two years after son’s cancer diagnosis

Michael Buble has announced his first studio album for two years, after he put his career on hold when his son was diagnosed with cancer.

The Canadian jazz singer’s 10th record is called Love, which is displayed as a heart emoji. It will be released in November and is billed as his most romantic to date.

Buble, who was raised a Catholic, admitted that he had thought he would not make another album after he and actress wife Luisana Lopilato announced in November 2016 their eldest son Noah had been diagnosed with the disease, aged three.

He said: “I didn’t anticipate returning to recording or performing and I was fine with that.

“My entire world view has changed completely these last few years. I wanted to spend all my time with my wife and kids. That was my focus.

“During that time, I also learned how much love and humanity is out in the world from the prayers and good wishes we received.

“But slowly, along with understanding what my priorities in life are, I began to feel a new commitment to express the emotions and lessons I’ve embraced.”

As reported in The Catholic Universe, four-time Grammy winner Buble returned to live performing with a sold-out show in July in London’s Hyde Park, where he was joined by Noah on stage.

Love will see Buble cover some of his favourite songs such as the jazz standards I Only Have Eyes For You and My Funny Valentine.
