    "Oh, hey girl, hey!" Make that, "Oh, hey girls, hey!" Plural.

    Singer Bette Midler is gearing up to release It's the Girls!, a stunning new album that pays tribute to girl groups through the ages.

    It's a jaunty and celebratory collection of some of the greatest harmonies performed by girl groups such as The Ronettes, The Boswell Sisters, The Andrew Sisters and The Chiffons as well as Motown acts like Martha Reeves and The Vandellas and The Marvelettes, among others.

    The album is out via Warner Bros. Records on November 4.

    "A long time ago I fell in love with voices in harmony," said Midler. "In particular, the sound of female voices singing together. There were so many great girl groups in those days, I still listen as avidly as I ever did. This record is a small attempt to honor them for all the joy they brought to me and the world."

    Midler is planning live dates, as well. Details coming soon!
