“I’m working on an album actually for Universal Republic Records,” says MacFarlane. “I had an offer to do an actual big band album and I took it. I said yes.”
Leno was naturally curious as to what that would entail, exactly. MacFarlane teases, “Swing arrangements of classic tunes. We kind of deliberately touched stuff that the Deans (Martin) and the Franks (Sinatra) and the Sammys (Davis Jr.) didn’t do yet.”
Putting his money where his mouth is, MacFarlane then performed the 1928 classic “You’re the Cream in My Coffee,” backed by “The Tonight Show” band. We’ll post video as soon as it’s available.
There is no word yet on when the album will be released. Will you be lining up to buy one?
