Released digitally September 28 ahead of a November 26 physical release, Some Lovers tells a Gift of the Magi-inspired original story by Sater centered on a couple caught between their present and past. The score is Bacharach's first new work for the stage since Promises, Promises in 1968. The musical had its world premiere at San Diego's Old Globe Theatre in 2011, with Sater and Bacharach continuing to work on and revise the work through readings and workshops in the years since. A concert version played Lincoln Center in 2016, and a full production was held at The Other Palace in London in 2017. Broadway Records' concept album is the musical's debut recording.
