Call Me Irresponsible is the fifth studio album and third major label studio album released by Canadian-Italian singer Michael Bublé. It was released on May 1, 2007, by 143 Records and Reprise Records.

Release

The album's first single, "Everything", peaked at #46 on the U.S. Hot 100,[1] Bublé's highest peaking song until "Haven't Met You Yet" became his first Top 40 hit in 2009. It has also debuted at number 3 on the Canadian BDS Airplay Charts and now holds the record for the highest debut ever on that chart. It also peaked at number 19 on the Australian ARIA Singles chart. Bublé appeared on an American Idol season 6 results show to sing "Call Me Irresponsible" when scheduled singer Tony Bennett, with whom he had collaborated before on the album Duets: An American Classic (2006) was unable to attend. On Monday, April 23, 2007, members of Bublé's official fanclub Bungalow B were given an exclusive listening party of the album's tracks and a look at a video clip at "Lost", Bublé's second original song. On this day, his official site was also given a makeover to match his coming album and his official YouTube channel released the video for the lead single. The channel also has behind-the-scenes videos and short snippets of videos used to make various commercials and preview clips. The entire album leaked shortly before its release. This album won the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album in 2007.[2]
