Written by Admin. Posted in Member News

“Almighty Love”, the much anticipated new studio album from Damien Dempsey, will be released on 28th September 2012. The album, which was written in Dublin and London and recorded in New Air Studios, London, has taken over four years to complete and is Dempsey’s most definitive recording to date.

Produced by long term collaborator John Reynolds, “Almighty Love” features performances from Sinéad O’Connor and emerging London artist Kate Tempest.

The first single to be taken from the album will be the title track “Almighty Love”, which is a soaring ballad celebrating the powerful strength of love. The single will be serviced to radio next week.

“Thanks to all the brilliant fans who have been so patient waiting on this album.  I hope it lifts all your hearts.  Thanks for the support. See youz along the road” – Damo

Fans can check out the full album tracklisting on Friday 10th August on Damien’s website and Facebook page, &

“Almighty Love” will be available to pre-order from iTunes Ireland and from Monday 13th August.
