May Each Day is a compilation album by American pop singer Andy Williams that was released in the UK in early 1966 by the CBS Records division of Columbia. It first appeared on the UK album chart on March 19 of that year and remained there for six weeks, peaking at number 11.[1] A similar collection entitled Andy Williams' Newest Hits made its debut on the Billboard Top LP's chart a month earlier, in the issue of Billboard magazine dated February 5, and remained there for 23 weeks, peaking at number 23.[2] While the cover photo and design of the two releases were the same, there were only five songs that they had in common.[3]

The title song from May Each Day entered the UK singles chart on February 26 of that year and eventually made it to number 19 during its eight weeks there.[1] The album also marks the only LP appearance of "Loved One", which was the B-side of "Ain't It True" and was included on the 2003 Williams collection from Collectables Records entitled B Sides and Rarities.[4]
