    Can anyone say "Mary Wilson?"

  11. #12
    wow !!! Now I am thinking of all the possibilities for new songs, writers and even duets.

  12. #13
    Imagine what they could do together, her and Mark...



    It's been like 13 years since the last album.

  13. #14
    oh good. Evan and Rhonda are busy writing songs for her as we speak.

  14. #15
    This has been in discussion for almost two years. It would appear that Diana has finally come to an agreement with a certain record company with regard to overseas touring commitments. That had been the biggest stumbling block.
    Mick Ronson is a very astute man. I don't know how many tracks he will be producing. He is about to drop his own album which he asked Diana to contribute to, so i guess he will be busy promoting that for a while. I suspect Nile Rodgers and Pharrell will be on board too. Both have been desperate to produce her for a while.

    My goodness, i almost choked on my morning coffee. Well thats got us all a flutter.
    I must confess, i never thought this would happen. It was great to feel that old rush of excitement again at the thought of a new Diana album. I had forgotten what it was like.
    I really hope the songs suit her voice as to where it is now such as Streisand did with Walls. It does not sound like Mark Ronson will do an entire album so i hope she chooses her producers well.

    For someone who should be considered a legend, it has been too long between releases. I certainly wish her well and much success. I certainly hope since her family is writing songs for her that they are up to the task as I personally am unfamiliar with any hit songs they have written. If Ronson wanted her to sing on his project, I have a feeling that maybe the same song will be released on both projects. Ross' voice seems to be in pretty decent shape lately so it is good she is recording now. Good Luck!

    Dare to dream?

    Cynic that I am I'll believe this when the album hits the airwaves.

    Yes, it has been a very long time. There are teenagers that have been born and grown up since her last release. She may not have many other options other than having songs written for her by her family at this point.

    Still, this would be a nice little souvenir for her fans if this album ever gets made. At least they won't have to constantly do tiresome remixes of her old records from 40 and 50 years ago.

    I doubt it would ever hit the airwaves in America since they stopped playing her music many, many years ago.

    I was somewhat sceptical too. I am trying to find out more, but the fact that Diana herself appears to have finally confirmed it makes me think it may actually be happening.

    Diana needs to surround herself with this kind of talent

    the way things are going, this may get released b4 Universal releases the next expanded edition!

    by the way, that's Mark Ronson; the late Mick Ronson was David Bowie's version of Keith Richards during the Ziggy Stardust/glam rock 70's...watch a new Ross single produced by Ronson go Top 40; the new album will def go to #1

  27. #28
    I thought this was one of those fake news articles until I heard her say it in that audio file. Great news. I get the feeling that the song produced by Mark may be a song for his project. Either way it would be nice to hear a new song by Diana. So who are some of your dream producers? Iíd like a few tracks produced by India Arie. Diana is a big fan, and India loves Diana. Although Iím not a John Legend fan, his style suits Diana. Bruno Mars is also good- I just donít want any songs that sound like she is chasing the young crowd.

    Diana also said in the same Q&A that Evan and Tracee have been writing music for her. hmmmmmmmm

  29. #30
    Actually, I don't care if it goes on the airwave or goes to #1.
    I am just elated that Diana has got over that hump and held out for what she wanted and is now ready to do it again. A new recording and a new CD is a good thing for me. So who really cares what the negative nellies have to say.

    So what! Who cares? At least, now that she officially announced it, I am confident that it will be released in just a matter of time, not a matter of decades. I can say that with "clarity".

    I am also confident that if Diana decides to tour, her number one fans will support her by buying the music and attending her shows if she is in their area, and probably will even travel to see her.

    Good for her, and good for all former Supremes who are still out there doing their thing and continuing to give us enjoyment.


    "They Is Terrific!"

    Don't be so bitter

    Exactly. Florence is probably looking down smiling at her two friends for still making sure the Supremes' legacy continues. I'm sure of it.

    You are a bigger hypocrite than that orange fool in the oval office. When "Big Star" LMAO, Mary Wilson hit the charts with a "tiresome remix from 40 or 50 years ago" you had this to say.

    Mark Ronson is a perfect producer for her. He did Amy Winehouse's Back To Black album. He has the ear for a great mix between a throwback and contemporary sounds. I imagine what he would do with her will be a mix that's suitable for her that's fresh, but also draws from that classic sound she made so famous back in the 60s and 70s. I do hope this album comes to fruition. If I'm not mistaken at one time it was reported she was recording a new album about 10 years ago that never came to light.

    I wonder if it will sound anything like this

    Yes it is! I knew Mick Ronson way back when, and whenever i refer to Mark Ronson i always type Mick.
    Despite Marv's mocking of this forthcoming project i am also very confident this album will be a success. It is the right time to do it.
    Marv will have to get used to sucking on those bitter lemons and sour grapes. He will be chocking on them if the album really takes off hahahaha.

    He is the gift that keeps on giving. What a hypocrite he is, but it makes even more fun to call him out. Keep up the great work Marv. Much love to you xxx

    It will be interesting to see what conditions if any Diana has agreed to with regard to overseas touring commitments.

    Maybe her long anticipated appearance at Glastonbury, UK could be worked in around the new album!!!

    Didn't one of those remixes chart on Billboard recently though?

    She may have to do a Tina Turner and move overseas, if we don't give her love. Look how that turned out for her: hit B'wy. play and autobiography!! Which I highly recommend!

    I agree with Pharrell being one of the dream producers. Whatch'all think about megaproducers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis? Look what they did for Janet. Which in my humble opinion brought her induction into the Hall of Fame AND making careers of scores of folk! Ciara I'm looking at you, hon.

    Methinks he will be forced to make lemonade from those bitter lemons! And wine from those grapes!! Diane (real name) rocks!! If you can still be performing in your late 70's you deserve the success you've achieved!! One report said the average performer/musician/singer's shelf life is 5 years!!!! Take that haters!!!!!

    Although I am skeptical as hinted above, I guess we should be encouraged by the idea that ANYONE might still be releasing "an album" or "a CD" in 2020, since all indications are that the format will have been phased out by then.

    I don't know. No one predicted the death of iTunes at least on Apple Mac systems lol

    My big fear is that Diana will finally follow One of Maryís ideas for the first time in 50 years - announce an album that never comes out, like Maryís HDH album!

    I wonder if my worry will be as grave as Marvís fear that this will be a hit?

    I think not!

    Phased out ? I just bought a CD, then purchased a Vinyl LP for $22.98 and then downloaded an Itunes song as well. As long as they don't bring back 8track I'm good.
