Michael Bublé is making a comeback this November with a brand new album entitled Love (stylized as a heart emoji). The lead single, When I Fall in Love, was released Thursday morning, accompanied by a melancholy music video.
After a very personal two-year absence and the possibility of an early retirement, the Canadian crooner decided to return to the stage back in July, in the wake of the recording of a follow-up to 2016’s Nobody But Me.
Bublé, 43, avoided the spotlight for a couple of years after touring his last album. He opted to spend time with his family as his eldest son, Noah, was diagnosed with cancer. He wanted to maximize on his family time and be there for Noah throughout treatment.
After a tough battle, Noah went into remission last April. Bublé’s wife, Luisana Lopilato, stated during a press conference in Buenos Aries:
“My son’s recovery is a long process, as you all know, and he has to continue with check-ups. But we are very happy. We are looking forward to thinking about the future, to seeing our children grow.”

Upon his comeback, Bublé visited ET Canada for an intimate interview. He expressed how easy it was to drop everything in his life — including his career — for the well-being of his son.
Bublé and Lopilato just welcomed their third child (and first daughter), Vida, into the world.
About his return to the stage he admitted, “People can say it isn’t a comeback, but man, I was gone and I didn’t know if I would ever, ever come back.”
Following a daily streak of consecutive teaser tweets, Bublé dropped the debut music video from Love after a Facebook Live announcement.
The music video for When I Fall in Love, dropped immediately after.

While promoting the brand-new album, Bublé will enjoy time with his family before embarking on a small tour in the U.K. and Australia. There are no confirmed dates yet, but it’s expected he’ll hit the road with Love in 2019.
Love is the 10th studio album by Bublé. It will be released Nov. 16 under Reprise Records. You can pre-order it on the official Michael Bublé website.
