After having recorded six critically acclaimed albums of songs written by the greatest songwriters of all time - from Gershwin to Bacharach, Manilow returns at last to his true passion - songwriting. Manilow teams up once again with lyricist Enoch Anderson for this astounding new work.
Inspired by the Andy Warhol quote that "in the future, everybody will be world famous for fifteen minutes," this energetic and exciting guitar-driven pop album explores the perils and pinnacles of fame's double-edged sword. More than two years in the making 15 MINUTES is set for release on June 14.
"Fame and success are something we all strive for, and yet when we get it how do we behave? That question jumps out at us daily from magazine covers, TV news and online gossip sites. In my world of entertainment, I've watched perfectly decent and talented people achieve the success they've been striving for only to crash and burn as their star rises. It happens in every walk of life, not only in the entertainment field; in sports, in politics and in daily life when the assistant manager gets promoted at the grocery store. It's something that continues to fascinate us, and for me it represented an exciting musical journey to explore, " explained Manilow.
Making a guest appearance on 15 MINUTES is young Nataly Dawn, lead singer of the white-hot group "Pomplamoose." Her rendition of "Letter From A Fan" is both innocent and eerie.
15 MINUTES, produced by Manilow and Michael Lloyd is a captivating tale of someone who achieves fame, blows it and begins again.
Great lyrics, a great story line, a voice that is older, but still good.
Filled with beautiful lyrics, a gorgeous arrangement and soaring vocals, this track is one of the best on the album.
It was a long wait for fans of Barry Manilow to hear a new all original album and let me say, it was worth the wait.
I'm a closet Barry fan. I don't have every album he ever did, but I really respect his musicianship and how prolific he is. Read morePublished 6 days ago by B. Ross
This is not your typical Manilow album filled with pianos and romantic songs, but guitars and more of a rock and roll feeling. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Henry Troll

I love Manilow and his lyrics.
This is my least favorite of all of his music that I have.
Really only one song that I like....
There are are only like 3 songs I really like. The rest are OK. You can hear Barry's voice has aged, but it is enjoyable.Published 15 months ago by David A Lasley

|barry manilow 15 minutes is awsome!!!!!!!!!!||
I think it's time for Clive Davis to be put out to pasture. I don't think he ever respected Barry's talent as a songwriter. This is evidenced by 10 years of cover albums since "Here at the Mayflower" (and another 10 years of cover albums before that). This new album is doing very good... Read More
