Dyspepsia Records Announces the April 15 release of "The Greatest Arias and Duets of Florence Foster Jenkins."

Dyspepsia CEO, John Featherwhistle announced today that the long-awaited album of the great operatic Diva's hits will be released April 15. Fully re-mastered, re-mixed and enhanced with the latest in digitized auto-tune technology, the recording sheds new light on the legendary Soprano who was memorialized recently cinematically by Meryl Streep.

"We here at Dyspepsia are pleased to no end to bring this recording to the listening public," said Featherwhistle. "All of the great Divas classic works are here and are reborn," he continued.

The effort covers three selections and a dozen alternate takes. Leading off with "La Bella Donna on Same," Jenkins' classic coloratura sends shivers down one's music spine. Her take on "The Marriage of Gepetto's Cat" is the second memorable cut. She concludes the session with "Did I Just Step on the Last Tune?" a marvelous duet with basso profundo, Vito Bacciagalupe -the famed "Wolf Who Kisses." The alternate takes are filled with emotion, emojis and e-Harmony.

"We are so proud of this effort that we will be submitting this album for consideration at the Ulan Bator Throat Singing Festival to be held October 31," Featherwhistle added. As the jazz musician Kenny G said, "What Bird was to Jazz, Florence Foster Jenkins is to myself and all fans of opera buffoon."

The recording will be available for download from iTunas, Spoofify and other medium outlets.

Gotcha! April Fools!
