It turns out that now, in a move that is both unexpected and totally not, Murray is working on New Worlds, a program of classical music that he plans to take on the road (via Vulture). It's being billed as Bill Murray, Jan Vogler & Friends.

According to The New York Times, the Ghostbusters actor is now working on a new project titled New Worlds, a collection of songs and literary readings read over chamber music, led by the cellist Jan Vogler. Musical selections include some George Gershwin, Stephen Foster, and songs from West Side Story, while the readings will come from works by Walt Whitman and Ernest Hemingway. The aforementioned rehearsals have also been recording sessions, since a recording of the show will also be released in August.

The initial idea for the project came about after Murray and Vogler met on a flight from Berlin to NY in 2013. Two years later, Murray took Vogler on the Poets House annual poetry walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, and the first seeds of the project were planted.

Rep. Waters Says O'Reilly "Needs To Go To Jail"
Maxine Waters may have come up with the most appropriate title to describe the environment at Fox News. Diamond agreed not to talk about the allegations as part of her settlement, according to the Times .

The Times reports the odd pairing for the tour stems from Murray and Vogler sitting across from each other on a flight from Berlin to NY in 2013. "You hear all those other voices saying, 'That didn't sound like Tony Bennett, ' or, 'That B flat's not going to break a light bulb.' But they're receding".

The act will have its United States premiere at Festival Napa Valley in California on July 20, followed by a North American tour that will conclude at Carnegie Hall on October 16. See a trailer for the upcoming live shows below.
