Lover, You Should Have Come Over
Label: Decca (UMO)
A massive hit in the U.K., Cullum's debut comes stateside in an expanded edition. Twentysomething recalls the 1970s piano pop heyday of Randy Newman, Elton John, and especially Billy Joel, but with a breezy, Connick-style jazz base. Cullum puts his own spin on standards, rock covers, and cheeky originals.
