Áine Tyrrell announces new single ‘Hope Will See Me Through’

An ode to the troubadours journey of creative expression and the trials and tribulations that follow.

‘Hope Will See Me Through’ – OUT March 8th 2019

She may be one of our most prolific artists, but Australian-based Irish singer Áine Tyrrell is showing no signs of letting up, on her special announcement of her new album ‘Return to the Sea’ (See here for album pr notes: http://wp.me/pfSbW-1vf) and single ‘Hope Will See Me Through’.

From the West Coast of Ireland hails one of Australia’s favourite adopted sisters, who readies herself to release her unwavering and purely honest second album, March 8th in Ireland, to accompany the release, a truly stunning, honest song…

Says Áine of her new single “What you see on social media or at gigs rarely reflects what independent artists are doing day in and day out. It is a massive battle to bring any piece of art into the noisy world we live in independently. What I have found helps, is those cups of tea with friends who are doing the same thing, the little messages here and there, or a little word of encouragement from a stranger along the way.

 Another song writing friend had told me in one of these exchanges to hang on for good news through the ups and downs of it all and this little piece of advice, I always come back to. A little thought of hope and holding on is never far from my mind so it is quite natural “Hope Will See Me Through” would find its way out of me. It is one of those rare songs that came through as a little mantra and is in tact in the same way as it was at that time I needed to say it to myself.  

Creative living is just a reflection of being human, so this little song has come in handy in more than just my career. This little light of hope in a song has helped me through the passing of a dear friend, motherhood, and homesickness. To be human is to need hope. I hope this song becomes a little hug to anyone going through something tough or for anyone trying to bring their creative thing out into the world too. We need you and your art”.

Áine Tyrrell announces details of new album

 

Album: ‘Return to the Sea’  

OUT March 8th 2019

She may be one of our most prolific artists, but Australian-based Irish singer Áine Tyrrell is showing no signs of letting up, on her special announcement of her new album. From the West Coast of Ireland hails one of Australia’s favourite adopted sisters, who readies herself to release her unwavering and purely honest second album, ‘Return to the Sea’ on March 8th in Ireland.

‘Return to the Sea’ is a treasure-trove of contemporary narratives and musical sojourns with a solid respect for tradition, collectively fused with a passion for adventure and travelling to new lands, both real, and musical. In true Tyrrell style, recording her second album was anything but usual. In 2017 Tyrrell returned to her homeland of Ireland, to the places and the people that made her the woman she is today.

Harnessing the energy and emotion of her travels, Tyrrell joined forces with long-time producer Mark Stanley once again and explored lounge rooms, front bars, old churches, and remote islands across her Irish homeland recording and mastering in all of the nooks and crannies’ that would adapt to her portable recording studio. While recorded in Ireland, this 10-track album still carries the sand of Tyrrell’s adopted home as it was mastered and crowdfunded with one boot in the Australian red dirt.

‘Return to the Sea’ is a passionate journey as it draws from a number of styles and influences. Certainly, the traditional Irish folk is in her blood, but so too are elements of soul and rock ‘n’ roll, entwined within her lyrical testaments. Her unwavering passion for justice and integrity has led to her supporting current Women’s Rights and Indigenous Rights issues through performances, social media campaigning, song writing and public speaking engagements.

“‘Return to The Sea’ is about standing in power, owning your own skin and making sense of the shared responsibility we have as humans. The album embraces stories that have inspired me to do more than just sit and hope for change.” Said Tyrrell of the album.

“It is my call to arms. Many observations between Australia and Ireland are scattered through the tracks, but the one common thread is that together we rise in strength when one human experience can mirror and then shape our collective understanding and action.”

While the new music retains a connection with her traditional folk roots, it also finds Áine branching out – finding new sounds and a new way to tell her stories. Never one to shy away from spilling blood onto paper, her long time creative partner in crime, producer, Mark Stanley is at the production helms here, both a united force of nature on the album.

“Hope will see me Through’ is the lead single from the new album.

Áine Tyrrell announces new Single, Music Video, a collaboration with Glenn Hansard and Irish Tour dates!

 

She may be one of our most prolific artists, but Australian-based Irish singer Áine Tyrrell is showing no signs of letting up, announcing the release of a new EP, another tour and a special collaboration with internationally acclaimed songwriter Glen Hansard.

Having only just finished touring off the back of her debut Queen of Swords album, Áine is gearing up for the August release of her latest EP Fledgling Fall, featuring first single ‘Don’t Be Left Crying’ which will be out July 28th. While the new music retains a connection with her traditional folk roots, it also finds Áine branching out – finding new sounds and a new way to tell her stories.

Part of that growth has been her recent collaboration with the multi-award winning Hansard, who met Áine on his sell out Australian tour in 2016. Not only have the two worked together on this batch of songs, but also Áine will travel to Ireland later this year to record with Hansard and members of his much-loved band The Frames.

“It has been such an amazing opportunity for me to work with one of my songwriting heroes,” Áine says. “He is a warrior of poetry and people. I feel blessed to have made such an inspiring friend and kindred spirit musically and being able to bounce ideas and share songs with him has been phenomenal for my songwriting and my soul.”

Never one to shy away from spilling blood onto paper, Áine had intended that Don’t Be Left Crying, an elegant yet seductively psychedelic folk song, to be one of those little mantras she had written just for herself. But her long time creative partner in crime, producer, Mark Stanley and Hansard thought the song was destined for more.

 “While most songs start off as personal, as this one did with my own heartbreak after a break-up, what makes a song powerful is when you can make the personal universal,” says Áine. “This is where Glen and I agreed to serve the song. He added in some words that could have come straight from my heart or anyone. That is the beauty of song crafting.”

Check out the Exclusive ‘One take’ Video for “Don’t Be Left Crying”:

Says Áine of the song and video: “At the heart of Don’t Be Left crying is a story of addiction. I have lost many loved ones along the way and seen and personally felt the destruction of relationships due to life’s little vices. Whilst the song is a song of heartbreak for me personally it is also the tale of the degradation of a relationship over time. At the heart of what I was writing was how the various addictions we have in life take us all away from truly being present to ourselves and the people around us. They are a silent wall. And we are all really only one drink, one hit, one smoke away from being trapped inside our own walls and destroying what we love so dearly”.
