The new album "Bing Crosby's Irish Songbook," featuring previously unreleased recordings from the iconic 20th-century crooner, is now available to stream and download.
The 15-track collection, which was released just ahead of St. Patrick's Day on March 10, showcases Crosby's love for Irish culture and his unique interpretation of traditional ballads and upbeat jigs.

The Irish songbook is the second album release of the year from The Crosby Estate following "A Valentine from Bing" in February.
