Diana Krall and Elvis Costello co-wrote half the 12 tracks on her new CD, The Girl in the Other Room.

Due April 27, Room features tunes penned by Mose Allison, Tom Waits and Joni Mitchell, as well as Costello's Almost Blue. But Krall also spreads her wings as a composer and lyricist. "I started writing when I was a student but didn't really have the confidence to (pursue) lyric-writing in great depth," she explains. "I've never done anything so personal."
I can't wait for her new CD. The last CD "Live In Paris" was fantastic.
She will also kick off this summer's Mtl Jazz Festival.
