“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
“Almighty Love” will be available to pre-order from iTunes Ireland and www.myplaydirect.com/damien-dempsey from Monday 13th August.
Dempsey will embark on a tour of Ireland and the UK this year to support the album release. He will take his legendary live shows to Australia and the US in 2013.
