Old song that I can't get over every time I listen to. These boys do such a great job singing it.

Any news on whether Baruch Levine is making another "Off the Record" album anytime soon?
Also when is the new Miami Boys Choir album coming out?
Any news on other album releases is also appreciated.

i would be shocked if another off the record came out soon if ever. There is a limit of classic English songs, and even on off the record 2 it seems they struggled to find enough.(many of the songs were less known non classic ones and a big portion of the album is kids songs that you wouldnt expect to hear on such an album. That being said its an amazing album i listen to all the time the latest time being this morning on the way to work.)

Still tons of (older) English songs out there for them to choose from. Iyh when I have a chance I'll compile a list of 45-50 songs. There's no reason they need to limit themselves to "well known" songs.

Aderabe, using lesser known songs would be even better

Only thing that I heard that they struggled with was shoehorning songs into "themed medleys", so they limited themselves to a specific theme thereby narrowing the candidate song pool

I agree.
I think there are enough songs, but trying to find themes to connect the songs is harder. A lot of songs share the same themes as those on the first 2 albums - there are a lot of songs that could fit into the Shabbos medley, for example, that weren't included in it. So now to find a new theme connecting the songs they want to use is a lot harder, because so many central themes in songs - Golus, Achdus, Shabbos, Torah, Emunah, Mashiach, Yiddishkeit, Am Yisroel, Tefilla, Midos, Teshuva, and Yerushalayim - have been used already and are therefore out of the picture.
If anyone has ideas of a new theme with a list of songs, I'd love to hear it. The only ones I can think of would be Yamim Tovim-themed, but how many (mainly English) oldies are there about Yamim Tovim, except those on kids albums? Maybe Chanukah would have enough.
Thoughts?

Maybe, but the amount of people that I heard from who had never heard e.g. Dear Nikolai before and loved it makes me think that there's a sizable audience for a "OTR3 - The Buried Gems" version.

They have yet to include even one Destiny song. Perhaps the song quality were not as good, but the nostalgia level is pretty high for many of us.

  Dear Nikolai was the biggest attraction for me! i think bec. i grew up having my father listen to it bec. of nostalgia....

  i agree,but all of their songs are stories with a punchline at the end  and  you cant just sing a 1.5 minutes of the song and have it make sense.

This was the reason I was told why they "couldn't" include Destiny. I don't know if it's a hard blocker though

Meh, plenty of choruses they could sing that would make sense even without the full context. Off the top of my head, aleph Beis, Ani yehudi, colored candles, the western wall, ועוכו"כ

I have a proposal. Yeedle should make a new album - get songs, make arrangements, record music... but then MBD should sing the vocals.  :P
