“A record filled with emotions and honesty” – Daily Telegraph
“A beautifully wholesome homage to love in its purest and fullest form” – Billboard
“Heartfelt & poignant” – Tmrw Magazine
Leading up to the release of his new album Sweet Decay on the 13th April via AllPoints, Ciaran Lavery has unveiled his new single ’13,’ released on Friday 9th March.
The track is the second single from the album following ‘To Chicago,’ which had its video premiered via Billboard. ‘13’ is a more upbeat track encompassing a wider array of instruments and rhythm, but also featuring his distinctive vocals with themes of love and relationships which both songs possess.
Speaking about the new single, Ciaran said: “’13’ deals with my own fear borne from an inability to handle long lasting love without contributing to its destruction. I cannot say it any plainer than that really. This song makes me feel uncomfortable. But I want to be as honest a songwriter as I can be; I don’t have any other choice but to face these things head on. ”
Ciaran has expanded his musical horizons with Sweet Decay, recording tracks with various Irish musicians that have also recorded with the likes of Hozier and James Vincent McMorrow. The album is the follow up to his 2016 album Let Bad In that won the Northern Irish Music Prize.
