Confessions is a studio album by American singer and actress Liza Minnelli, released through Decca Records on September 21, 2010 in the United States. The album, recorded while Minnelli was recovering from knee surgery, marked her first studio release in nearly fifteen years. Originally, the story was these recordings were old tapes that a neighbor in Beverly Hills had discovered, having been recorded some 10 or more years earlier but this story changed after the album's release. Here's the original press release- " Liza Minnelli (pictured) showed up at her neighbor Bruce Roberts' Beverly Hills door late one night nearly a decade ago saying, "I just feel like singing." Minnelli relaxed on a couch, while Billy Stritch played keyboard, and Liza sang 20 old standards as Roberts tape-recorded the session. Last year, Roberts found the tapes in an old box and realized he had found gold. "They were brilliant. So I tweaked them up," Roberts told us. "It's like having Liza singing in your living room." The duo signed a deal with Decca in November.
