What better way to celebrate 50 years in the music industry than tackling some of the greatest songs in history?

“It was so much fun getting to choose songs that have meant so much to me in my life,” Donny Osmond tells PEOPLE of recording Soundtrack of My Life, the legendary performer‘s 60th album!

The 12-track album includes covers of classics like the Stevie Wonder hit “My Cherie Amor,” Elton John‘s “Your Song” and Michael Jackson‘s “Ben.” PEOPLE has an exclusive first listen to the album.

“You can’t mess with these songs too much or people won’t like it,” says Osmond, 57. “But I definitely put my own twist on them. I stick to the melody in the beginning and then I have some fun with them.”

Soundtrack of My Life will be available to purchase Tuesday.
