Trisha Yearwood is gearing up to release her first full-length studio album in more than a decade and it's a project she's been wanting to record for even longer. The singer is releasing Let's Be Frank, an album of Frank Sinatra covers, early next year.

"I've been wanting to make this record for 20 years!" Yearwood told People. "I have always loved standards, and nobody sings them better than Sinatra. I'm honored to get the chance to pay tribute to him and the songwriters in these timeless classics."

People reports that the country star recorded the album of Sinatra standards at the Capital Records building in Hollywood with Sinatra's microphone.

The album will be available on Dec. 20 at Williams-Sonoma and available everywhere in February of next year.
