Age has apparently mellowed Paul Anka. With his last CD, 2005's Rock Swings, the 66-year-old pop veteran raised eyebrows by performing tunes made famous by Nirvana, Soundgarden and Van Halen. But his latest project covers the softer turf of Billy Joel, Joni Mitchell and, well, Anka himself.

So for Classic Songs, My Way, out Aug. 28, the former teen idol, whose own songwriting credits include one of Frank Sinatra's signature tunes and the theme for The Tonight Show, decided to "expand things a little. I wanted to take songs from different genres that I could turn into ballads."
