Harry Connick Jr. unveils "Every Man Should Know" outing
Smooth crooner Harry Connick, Jr. will spend nearly two months touring the U.S. in support of his impending release, "Every Man Should Know."
The actor/musician will begin the domestic trek with a June 19 show in Baltimore, followed by 21 theater shows across the eastern U.S. A two-night stand Aug. 9-10 in Woodinville, WA, rounds out the itinerary, marking the only West Coast shows on the schedule.
Connick, Jr. will unveil "Every Man Should Know," his latest studio effort, June 11 via Columbia Records. The collection features 12 songs which wrote the music, lyrics and arrangements for.
"I used to be more comfortable writing in a fantasy-style concept, using ideas that intrigued me but didn't necessarily come from personal experience," Connick, Jr. said in a press release. "It's one thing to assume the role of a storyteller – it's quite another when the story is your own. I felt ready to explore some of my personal experiences in some of the songs this time around."
In February, Connick, Jr. released "Smokey Mary," a limited edition album celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Krewe of Orpheus, a Mardi Gras parade the musician co-founded.
