As we reported back in March, Eagles member Glenn Frey‘s new record ‘After Hours’ was going to be unlike anything that the musician had released in the past. The first video from the album proves this point quite clearly.

The record was finally released this past Tuesday and sees the musician pursue his love of the great American songbook, giving new life to classic tracks such as Dusty Springfield’s ‘The Look of Love’, Beach Boys’ ‘Caroline No’ and Bobby Troup’s ‘Route 66.’

“This isn’t really a standards record — it’s more about these romantic songs,” Frey said in an interview filmed for the ‘After Hours’ trailer. “Except for ‘Route 66,’ they’re all love songs. And even in ‘Route 66,’ love’s drivin’, and he loves giving directions!”

If ‘Route 66′ is any indication on what fans can expect from the remainder of ‘After Hours’, fans might be in for a pleasant surprise. Frey seems as natural singing this song as he does any Eagles song, perhaps a testament to not only his musical versatility but also his desire to honor some of the songs and artists who influenced him.

Frey has five shows on tap over the month of May, starting on May 14 in Washington, D.C., wrapping up in Los Angeles, Calif. on May 26.
