What's New is an album of traditional pop standards released by American oducer Linda Ronstadt in 1983. It represents the first in a trilogy of 1980s albums Ronstadt recorded with bandleader/arranger Nelson Riddle. John Kosh designed the album covers for all three albums. The album spawned a major change in popular culture because Ronstadt was then considered the leading female vocalist in rock.
Linda Ronstadt’s voice has never sounded better than it does on Get Closer. It’s an uneven album, to be sure, but its spirit is unassailable. Ronstadt’s ringing soprano vibrates with clarity and authority on the record’s best songs, and sometimes she uses her voice like a daring rock & roller: she yells until it hurts your ears
Get Closer found Ronstadt returning to the genres that had resulted in her commercial and critical success throughout the 1970s, and working again with British musician and producer Peter Asher.
