A beautifully wholesome homage to love in its purest and fullest form Billboard
Ciaran Lavery has released his new album Sweet Decay, via AllPoints (James Vincent McMorrow, Novo Amor, Anna Leone). The album includes the singles 13 and To Chicago.
A master of music and words that sear into where it hurts the most, (No Depression) Lavery has already become an acclaimed singer-songwriter in his native Ireland. Hailing from Aghagallon in County Antrim, he received the Northern Ireland Music Prize for his 2016 album Let Bad In. This years follow up Sweet Decay is a self-reflection on personal growth. Featuring performances by Saint Sister (vocals), Rory Doyle (drums Hozier, Bell X1), Joe Furlong (bass James Vincent McMorrow) and more, and produced by GRAMMY Award winner Ruadhri Cushnan (Mumford & Sons, Luke Sital-Singh, Half Moon Run, Ed Sheeran), Lavery describes the album as the sound of pure catharsis. Since the release of the latest single 13, Laverys total Spotify stream count has surpassed 80 million, as the song has amassed over 170,000 streams to date.
Consistently hailed as an artist defying the stereotypical singer-songwriter archetype… [with] glints of brilliance (Irish Times), Lavery will be touring the UK and Europe throughout April and May in support of Sweet Decay.

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.
