Harry Connick Jr. Goes It ‘Alone’ for Faith-Inspired New Album: Watch ‘Amazing Grace’

We’ve all had a lot of time to ourselves over the past year — even Harry Connick Jr.

The Grammy-winning musician decided to take that spare time and retreat to his in-home studio for a brand-new album, Alone With My Faith, that he put together almost entirely on his own.

“I was able to go deep within myself as a musician and a man, uninterrupted by the normalcies of collaboration or human interaction,” Connick wrote in a personal statement about his new project. “It was a sort of ‘musical isolation chamber,’ a silent retreat, the silence only broken by the sound of my own voice, the instruments I played and the occasional microphone I inadvertently knocked over, as I’m not the most graceful recording engineer that ever lived!”

Connick sang every part, played every instrument and arranged every song on the album, out March 19 via Universal Music’s Verve and Capitol CMG. Up first is his stirring rendition of “Amazing Grace,” along with a music video directed by Connick’s 24-year-old daughter Georgia.

In addition to “Amazing Grace,” some other familiar spiritual titles on the track list include “How Great Thou Art,” “Because He Lives,” “Be Not Afraid” and “The Old Rugged Cross,” mixed in with some Connick originals.

“Besides the familiar, traditional songs, I wrote and recorded new music that tells the story of my experience during the lockdown,” he adds in his personal note. “I, like most of us, felt joy, sadness, doubt, conviction, melancholy and inspiration – all the emotions that faith, or lack thereof, can elicit. Even though many of the songs are Christian, my hope is that they will resonate with people of all faiths, as it gives me great comfort to know that faith is an immeasurably beautiful gift that, with its universal spirit, can help bring us together in the most arduous of times.”
