Valli just released his first new studio album in 15 years, showing that he still has what it takes to be a pop singer. Romancing The '60s is a collection of songs he says he's always wanted to record.

Valli was one of the best performers of his time, with a singing career that spans almost six decades. Best known as the falsetto-voiced lead singer of The Four Seasons ("Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Walk Like A Man," "Rag Doll"), he scored 29 Top 40 hits, and has sold more than 100 million records worldwide.

Rock and Roll Hall of Famers, Valli and The Four Seasons are subjects of the Tony-winning musical Jersey Boys, a play about their life and times. The play's success has helped bring his music to a new generation.
