New Music from The Late David Turpin

The Late David Turpin has just released his latest single. ‘The Arrow Of A Sleeping Heart’ is a collaboration with French-Irish singer Samyel and features production from Stephen Shannon (Mount Alaska) and Conan Wynne (Contour), as well as saxophone by contemporary classical saxophonist Stephen O’Brien (Irish Composers Collective).

‘The Arrow of a Sleeping Heart’ is sung in both French and English, and is played in dual overlapping time signatures. Lush, mysterious and erotic, the result is David’s personal favourite from his most recent, and most acclaimed, album. For the cover art, by Ruth Medjber, he was photographed submerged in an estuary, in January.

Also from February 14, The Late David Turpin can be heard as co-composer and co-vocalist in ‘Folly & Diction’, a new film-and-installation piece by the artist Alan Phelan, showing at the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin. The piece will be on display until March 27, before exhibiting internationally.

‘The Arrow of a Sleeping Heart’ is taken from David’s album, ‘ROMANCES’, was released in late 2019 as a limited-edition art book (which has now sold out) and download.
