Following on from her exceptional performance at Other Voices last week SON has shared a a video for her latest single ‘Almost’, which she debuted in Dingle.
“I recorded Almost in Hotel Doolin during the lockdown while there on an artist residency. Mick Flannery tweaked a few words with me and put piano to the song and we sent it to Zac Barter in Australia. Making sounds in this new way has been a cool process. Hope ye enjoy the track.” says Son, explaining the origins of the track which will appear on her forthcoming album.
Of course, this is not the first time Son and Mick Flannery have collaborated. They released a duet, ‘Baby Talk’, earlier this year, which recently won ‘Best Original Song’ at the RTE Folk Radio awards.
We can expect a debut album to arrive in Spring 2021.
