Christy Moore’s new studio album Lily will be released worldwide on 20 May 2016.
Featuring ten songs, the Declan Sinnott produced album is the first new music from Christy since ‘Where I Come From’ in 2013. The title track tells us of Christy’s early memories of County Kildare, and the album takes us on a journey across the water and back home with songs from Christy, Peter Gabriel and local heroes; John Spillane and Declan O’Rourke. Christy says, “This collection has been a joy to record. We worked at different locations over the past two years and now it’s time to let it off upon the air.”
The album’s first single, ‘The Tuam Beat’, is available now on iTunes, Google Play and Spotify.
One of the most compelling and inspirational musicians Ireland has ever seen, Christy Moore has a universal fan base and still continues to entertain; cementing him as an Irish icon. It is his deep urge to connect with the listener and to transmit the meaning of the songs he sings that has endeared him to audiences of all ages.
Christy has produced more than 25 solo albums, from Paddy on the Road in 1969 to Where I Come From in 2013. Christy Moore: Journey, a documentary on 50 years of song, aired on RTE television in April 2016 and this summer will be busy as ever on the live circuit; with shows at Dublin’s Vicar Street and Grand Canal Theatre, Folkfest Killarney and the Cambridge Folk Festival.
