Maria Doyle Kennedy announces the release date of self titled new album ‘Maria Doyle Kennedy’ out Nov 10th 2017.
Maria Doyle Kennedy has spent the past 5 years wandering the globe with her family preparing songs for the new album gigging constantly and filming cult TV show Orphan Black. The new album has just dropped over on spotify and gets it official release date across all digital platforms on Nov 10th 2017, on her own label Mermaid Records.
Maria has just collaborated with Feist & Jarvis Cocker on a video for the song *Century* from Feist’s new album. The project was a crazy mashup of Westside story and Thriller and featured Maria & Feist as dance-off gang leaders….
Maria writes and performs with husband Kieran Kennedy and along with the new album they have also completed their first short film *A Different Kind Of Day* written and directed by Maria, produced and scored by Kieran . They also raise 4 children together, although occasionally, when things are particularly frantic, they just throw packets of crisps at them.
The new album in Maria’s words:
Mostly the songs come from my efforts to explain the world to myself, a thing I sometimes find difficult or confusing . I don’t worry when I’m singing, more than that , I don’t think when I’m singing, I just sing. I trust the songs. They make things clearer for me.
Check out ‘Pride‘, released over the Summer from the album, which beckoned high acclaim from the likes of BBC radio and Rte:
