Molly Ringwald Prepares Comeback
Iconic 80s actress and teen sweetheart Molly Ringwald has announced the forthcoming release of her first ever album. The record will include her rendition of the Simple Mind’s smash 'Don't You (Forget About Me)' which featured in her highly popular film ‘The Breakfast Club’.
Molly featured in several box office winners during her teens and early 20s including The Pick-Up Artist, For Keeps, Fresh Horses, Betsy's Wedding, Cindy Sherman's Office Killer, Billy Bob Thornton's short film Some Folks Call It a Sling Blade, Jean-Luc Godard's King Lear, and the now-iconic John Hughes' movies Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink and The Breakfast Club.
Her forthcoming album ‘Except Sometimes’ was influenced by her family’s passion for Jazz, Molly stated “I grew up in a home filled with music and had an early appreciation of jazz since my dad was a jazz musician [pianist Bob Ringwald]. Beginning at around age three I started singing with his band and jazz music has continued to be one of my three passions along with acting and writing. I like to say jazz music is my musical equivalent of comfort food. It's always where I go back to when I want to feel grounded.”
A complete list of tracks featured on Except Sometimes is as follows:
1. Sooner Or Later
2. I Get Along Without You Very Well
3. I Believe In You
4. I'll Take Romance
