Lourdes Duque Baron, under the production of multi-platinum music producer, Andrew Lane, has just released her arrangement of “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” on MTV. Baron’s version is a tribute to the late Amy Winehouse and proves to be a charmingly classic doo-wop number that would be perfectly at home in a sharp Vegas lounge in the 50s. Listen to the song: Lourdes Duque Baron on MTV.
“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” was originally performed by The Shirelles in 1960, and written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King. Numerous music artists have performed the song since the original release. In 2004, Amy Winehouse recorded it for the film, “Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason,” slowing down the tempo and utilizing a jazz arrangement.
The song continues another chapter following her new book “I Called Myself Cassandra.” Baron’s smoky arrangement parallels her struggles during a dark period when she was estranged from her husband and chronicled in her book – detailing the wrong turns and heartaches that have allowed her to recognize the gifts in her life and the message of a new sunrise. “Will You Still Love Me” from her debut album, echoes these same experiences. “I wanted to make the songs of this album, including ‘Will You Still Love Me,’ like they’re chapters in a book, to try to really capture what I’m thinking about in that season of life,” she explains. “This record, to me, is probably one of the most interesting subject-wise. It’s a bit retrospective and honors musicians and classics of the past.”
Baron’s debut album entitled, “Andrew Lane presents Feeling Good At Any Age,” will be officially released in its entirety in July 2014. With the official release of the Filipino-singer’s album, others will discover what Lane calls, “an amalgam of sound that is genuinely fresh to the ears.”
Baron’s singular ability to blend tradition with contemporary color comes to the fore on this set of beguiling cover songs, which simultaneously capture the vintage, sepia-toned feel of her experiences with smoky and sultry sophistication of smooth jazz.
Baron’s smooth voice evokes a sense of nostalgia in “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow.” Her voice is reminiscent of 40s or 50s jazz and blues singers performing in smoky venues into a vintage microphone. “Will You Still Love Me” will also be available on iTunes and Vevo in July 2014.
