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. A similar collection titled Andy Williams' Newest Hits had the same cover photo and design, but there were only five songs that they had in common.[1] Whereas that release focused exclusively on Columbia recordings, May Each Day also included songs that Williams cut during his time with Cadence Records, and while several of the tracks here were chart hits in the US, only the title track reached the singles chart in the UK.[2]

The’May Each Day compilation first appeared on the UK album chart on March 19 of that year and remained there for six weeks, peaking at number 11.[2]

The title song from this compilation entered the UK singles chart on February 26 of that year and eventually made it to number 19 during its eight weeks there.[2] 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.[3]
