Luka Bloom Unveils Taste of New Album

Luka Bloom has been quietly beavering away writing songs in his home in north west county Clare for the past 2 years. Just prior to the world shutting down due to the Covid crisis last March, this collection of songs was recorded live over several days at Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin, with his hand-picked dream line-up of musical collaborators. These include Steve Cooney on guitar, Robbie Harris on percussion, Jon O’Connell on bass and Adam Shapiro on fiddle. Vocals were recorded separately during lockdown by Sligo singer Niamh Farrell and mixed and mastered by Brian Masterson.

The album is a collection of eleven songs and will be released on July 20th but in the meantime, Luka is releasing one of the tracks, ‘The Beauty of Everyday Things’ as a taster. “This is, I hope, the perfect song to begin with” he says. “I wrote it in the Summer of 2019 while reflecting on the simple beauty of life in Ireland, especially as the summer slowly unfolds. Life moves outdoors, we love it and it passes too soon, so let’s enjoy it all and celebrate it, hoping it lingers...” 

Luka’s single, ‘The Beauty of Everyday Things’ is available to download now from
