Eoin Glackin Returns with a Brand-New Single ‘El Dorado’

Dublin born singer-songwriter Eoin Glackin returns with a brand-new single ‘El Dorado’, due for release Friday, 27th November 2020. 

The new single builds on the momentum of ‘Before The Rain’, Glackin’s recent release which garnered major radio support across Ireland and the UK such as Today FM, Spin 103.8, 98FM as well as TalkRadio and BBC. 

The story of friendship in the face of the greatest adversity, something which may resonate today more than ever, has echoes of some of Glackin’s folk heroes like Kris Kristofferson, Steve Earle and Christy Moore.

The genesis for El Dorado, a story of unbreakable friendship, is best explained by the writer himself:

I was hanging out with a friend the evening after I wrote it. We were passing a guitar back and forth, so I played it for him. He looked at me when I was finished and asked, ‘Is that about me?’ I just replied, ‘Now you mention it, I think it is!

When we were about 10, he became very sick. He had a rough time but thankfully came out on the other end. I wasn’t sure where this story came from in my head, but now I do. This story of unbreakable friendship is for him.” 

Eoin Glackin is a Dublin born singer-songwriter, with three acclaimed albums under his belt.  A relentless tourer, he has shared the road with legendary acts like The Darkness, Joan Armatrading and most recently, Irish icons, Aslan. While Glackin is known for his eclectic songwriting, his work has always been steeped in the folk tradition of passing on stories and ideas through the medium of song.

‘El Dorado’ is no different.

Glackin is working on a new album due for release next spring.
