    Crooner Harry Connick, Jr. will expose his feelings –his feelings, yes, feelings, keep it clean, people!- as never before on his new album Every Man Should Know. The new CD will be released on Columbia Records on June 11 and it contains 12 original songs for which Connick wrote music, lyrics and arrangements.

    "No rules, no limits," is how the multi-talented artist describes the songs in his liner notes for the new collection. "I don't recall ever reaching quite as deeply – or confidently – into my inhibition pool."

    When asked about the transformation, Connick explained, "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. 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."

    Now this is the really important part.

    In addition to the wealth of original music on his new discs, Connick will release "Love Wins." The song is dedicated to Ana Grace Marquez-Greene, one of the children killed in the Newtown, Connecticut tragedy and the daughter of former Connick Big Band tenor saxophonist Jimmy Greene. Connick sang at Ana Grace's funeral, and was inspired by a speaker at the service who emphasized that love trumps even the greatest tragedy. All proceeds from sale of "Love Wins" will go to the Ana Grace Fund, which you can learn more at AnaGraceFund.com.
