Luan Parle’s Latest Album Out Now

‘Never Say Goodbye’, Luan Parle’s stunning new album – out 7th February 2020 – features 10 original tracks, including two co-writes with Dire Straits guitarist Hal Lindes. “With ‘Never Say Goodbye’ Luan Parle has delivered her finest collection of songs to date.” (Colm O’Hare, Hot Press). ‘Never Say Goodbye’ has been included in the Hot Press Hot for 2020 Irish albums list and ‘My Something Beautiful’, the first single released from the album, hit the No.2 spot on the iTunes charts on its release on 17th January.

“With a voice pure and true, Luan Parle sings from the heart but aims for the gut. From lovelorn country ballads to gothic Americana to hard-hitting social commentary, with this album Luan’s songwriting has matured to the point where she can rightfully claim to be the Emmylou of the Emerald Isle.” 

Nick Kelly – Music Editor,

Meteor Award and Tatler Award Winner singer-songwriter Luan Parle has had numerous hits and accolades including Meteor Ireland Music Award for Best Irish Female. The Wicklow-born songstress signed her first record deal at just 12 years of age before later signing with Sony Music and Elton John’s management company, Twenty First Artists. She has written and recorded with some of the worlds most successful songwriters and producers including Grammy-Award-Winning Bill Bottrell and Billy Steinberg. Having spent the last few years touring extensively in Germany, the USA, the UK, Finland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Ireland, Luan returned to the studio to record Never Say Goodbye.

“Never Say Goodbye, on its release, will remind listeners of the quality of Parle’s vocals and songwriting. In the meantime, check out her website to catch one of the upcoming shows, you certainly won’t be disappointed if this evening’s splendid performance is anything to go by.”
