Ronan Keating’s new album called When Ronan Met Burt has now been officially released.

The album features the Irish singer performing tracks written and produced by the legendary American song writer Burt Bacharach. The album features Keating, the lead singer with Boyzone, taking on the following Bacharach classics:

The Look Of Love

Walk On By

I’ll Never Fall In Love Again

Arthur’s Theme (The Best That You Can Do)

My Little Red Book

What The World Needs Now

Something Big

I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself

This House Is Empty Now

Make It Easy On Yourself

We reported in a previous post how Keating felt intimidated at the prospect of meeting Bacharach and performing with him at the famous Capitol studios in California.

There’s no hint of that in this album, however, with Ronan sounding in superb form as he gives his interpretation of some of the best songs written in the last 50 years. Well worth a listen.
