Frank Sinatra‘s daughter Tina has curated a collection of some of his most fondly-loved recordings, for a special compilation for children and parents alike. Frank Sinatra: Baby Blue Eyes…May The First Voice You Hear Be Mine will be released by Universal Music Group tomorrow (12 May).

The title of the album is a play on Sinatra’s familiar salute to his audience at the end of his performances, “May you live to be a hundred and the last voice you hear be mine.” The compilation has been envisioned by Tina as a child’s first musical library, carefully selected from songs of Frank’s that express a father’s love, compassion and dreams for children all over the world.

 

“Dad is perhaps best remembered as a saloon singer. He often referred to himself as such,” says Tina Sinatra. “But, first, he was a father and that emotional connection to the child in all us is ever-present in this collection of songs that I have chosen as a concert to each new generation.”

Baby Blue Eyes, which is drawn from Sinatra’s Reprise, Capitol and Sony catalogues, features an image of him as a baby on the cover. It will be available to download or stream via all major digital music providers worldwide, and at sinatra.com’s Sinatra 100 shop.
