“Carter’s live shows arouse something approaching mass hysteria” – Irish Post
“Carter has been quietly filling venues across the UK and America and while doing so has been quietly outselling most indie darlings” – Guardian
Irish country music phenomenon Nathan Carter announces the release of his new album ‘Stayin Up All Night’, on April 29th through Decca Records.
The 26 year-old household name has had three #1 albums, two #1 singles and two #1 live DVDs in Ireland. His last album ‘Beautiful Life’ has been certified 4-times platinum and he even had his own Christmas TV special on RTE last year.
From the age of 4, when he started learning the accordion, to being head chorister at Liverpool Catherdral, to Fleadh gold medals and singing for the Pope, music has always been at the heart of Nathan’s life. Inspired by the country music his parents’ loved – Johnny Cash , Waylon Jennings , Don Williams and Dolly Parton –Nathan’s passion, talent and infectious personality took him from working men’s club gigs to number one in the Irish charts – with his cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Wagon Wheel’ – in short order. National TV, sold out tours and the top of the charts have been his domain ever since.
Stayin’ Up All Night features 13 tracks of Nathan’s trademark modern country sound, and will be preceded by the single ‘Temple Bar’, a paen to the streets of Dublin’s famous district, on March 18th.
Balanced with mid-tempo numbers like Island Town, Buy Me A Rose and Liverpool, there’s a gentle side to the album, with a touch of nostalgia to ease you though the morning after. Don’t Know Lonely is a huge ballad, while Banks of the Roses is a traditional stomper, revealing Nathan’s fiddles-and-accordion Irish folk roots. The album rounds off with the beautifully personal Thank You.
