Much respect to Carole Cole, Nat King Cole's daughter and CEO of King Cole productions for having the intuition to put the Re: Generations album together. The album debuts March 10th and consists of Nat King Cole's original recordings blissfully reimagined with such varied collaborators as Cee-Lo, will.I.am., Natalie Cole, Nas, Stephen and Damian Marley, and TV On The Radio who turn "Nature Boy" into a dark, brooding Electronica track. Simply stated, think of this album as a Verve Remixed album of only Nat King Cole's songs. To tell you to pick this up when it drops is an understatement. It will be on heavy rotation on your iPod for months to come, guaranteed. My favorite track that I've heard thus far has got to be "Anytime Anyday Anywhere" produced by the oft-underappreciated Amp Fiddler. Listen to the silky smoothness below and peep the tracklist after the bounce.
