Seth MacFarlane will release his fifth album Once In A While (Verve and Republic) digitally, and the physical CD will be available on April 26th. The reflective album, which MacFarlane calls "a collection of wistful, pensive songs," features songs by Irving Berlin, Rogers and Hart, and Johnny Mercer.

The tracks for Once In A While were recorded alongside the songs for his last album, 2017's In Full Swing- and material for another, future record- in a marathon 2016 session at London's legendary Abbey Road Studio 2, the room in which the Beatles cut the majority of their catalogue. Unlike the hard-charging big band swing of his previous project, the thirteen songs on this album are all ballads that MacFarlane says "deal with longing, lost love, and sadness, infused with fond recollection and a hint of hope."

"They're not necessarily sad break-up songs," says arranger Andrew Cottee. "They're more reflective, thoughtful, even philosophical, but they're not all torch songs."
