Barry Manilow's CDBarry Manilow’s CD, During the last decade, Barry Manilow had incredible success themed release albums early successes of other artists, like the best songs of the fifties, sixties and seventies. But after all, Barry is the guy who once sang: “I write songs,” which is why he is so happy to finally release his first album entirely new original material since 2001. It’s called 15 minutes and is a concept album about the perils of fame, seen through the eyes of an artist who reaches the top, then falls apart. “I’ma composer and I’m writing,” Barry says ABC News Radio. “I’ve had great success with cover songs … but I missed writing, so that’s what [15 Minutes] is.”

As for why he decided to create a concept album, Barry said: “I wanted to write an album of 12 beautiful songs. I think at this point has to be something a bit more interesting than [saying] ‘I love you” and then the next song is “I miss you ‘and then the next song is” Come back to me. “Those records are good, but for me, I needed to be a little more interesting than that.” The double-edged sword of fame proved to be the perfect subject, says Barry, because, he says, “These days, it seems wider than ever.” Especially with reality shows like American Idol, says, “These young fame from nothing, and I’ve been there and is difficult to handle when tapped at any time.”

When Barry says, “I’ve been there,” he knows what he’s talking about. The songs on the album is supposed to be an imaginary character – a guitarist with 23 years of age – but soon realized they were hitting her little house in order. “I realized halfway through, I was writing about me…” says Barry. “I had gone through all the songs on this album, except the last. Thank God, I never went to the bottom, but had experienced each of them.”

One song in particular, “Everyone goes,” summed up a situation, which is in about five years of his fame. “I ended up in Florida one night and I realized that everyone around me, I was paying,” he recalls. “Everybody. The man who cooked for Me.’s Publicist. The guy who took me, and all these people … and my friends were gone. And I realized, ‘Where is my life go?”

Barry realizes that you are taking a risk by releasing 15 minutes – is not only a concept album, but has a guitar much more than their previous albums. He says, “I do not even know if anyone will like. Right now, I’m proud of it. We have worked very hard on it and that’s it. That’s what I can tell you. Let’s see what happens when comes out. “
