‘How About That Coffee?’ New Single from Niamh Regan Out Now

Galway singer-songwriter Niamh Regan has long been eulogised as one of Ireland’s most promising folk talents, and now she’s ready to leap to the forefront of the scene, with the release of her debut album ‘Hemet’, coming 10th August 2020 via the new Black Gate Records label.

The first taster from the album ‘Save the Day’ released last month, has been deservedly championed by Irish radio. It featured on the RTE Radio 1 Recommends’ playlist for 3 weeks in a row, and reached #1 on the station’s airplay chart, it was also playlisted on RTE 2XM, played on RTE 2FM, BBC Radio, and on top regional stations across the country.

Niamh now follows with the second release from her maiden LP; a 70’s blues-folk style ballad “How About That Coffee?”, out now [Friday 10th July].

Speaking about the new release, Niamh says: “I received a text that said “How about that coffee?” a while back and the question just worked itself into a song instead of that catch up.

The song really came to life in the studio when drums and double bass were introduced. Originally, I had planned for a nostalgic piano based approach based off some Tom Waits recordings, but we ended up down a road that was paved by Van Morrison with shimmering strings, full band, and horns. It was a great honour to work with such stellar musicians in this process.”

How about that Coffee? features the outstanding talents of Dominic Mullanon percussion/drums, Caimin Gilmore on double bass, Alex Borwick on trombone, Peter Berrill on trumpet, and Pat Daly on strings.

‘How About That Coffee?’ is out now, Friday 10th July 2020.

‘Hemet’ Niamh Regan’s forthcoming debut album coming 10th August is full of musical accomplishment, emotional maturity, and subtle craft. It is the long-awaited arrival of a truly immense talent.
