Harry Connick Jr's new album, Every Man Should Know, is released in Ireland on iTunes this Friday, June 7, and you can listen to it this week on RTÉ TEN.
Describing the album as "no rules, no limits", Connick wrote Every Man Should Know in its entirety and he is joined once again by friends Branford Marsalis (soprano saxophone) and Wynton Marsalis (trumpet).
"I don't recall ever reaching quite as deeply – or confidently – into my inhibition pool," says Connick. "I felt ready to explore some of my personal experiences in some of the songs this time around."
With songs chronicling "love and loss, celebration and sorrow, tragedy and hope", the tracklisting for Every Man Should Know is:
Every Man Should Know
One Fine Thing
I Love Her
Greatest Love Story
Come See About Me
Friend (Goin' Home)
Love My Life Away
You've Got It
Let Me Stay

Every Man Should Know is released on iTunes on Friday June 7 and on physical CD on Friday June 28.
