Áine Tyrrell Releases Powerful Song “PEOPLE LIKE ME AND YOU”

No Comments

Tyrell has just announced the release of her latest song, ‘PEOPLE LIKE ME AND YOU’. This is the first single from her forthcoming album, ‘MISE ÉIRE’, which is a pioneering testament to artistic courage, resilience and hope born out of Áine’s remarkable journey from her native West Coast of Ireland to the East Coast of Australia. 

Escaping a decade of domestic violence with her three children, Áine redefined her narrative from victimhood to triumph, PEOPLE LIKE ME AND YOU sings powerfully, into and out of this story. With a blend of genres, Áine’s raw and honest lyrics deliver a message of empowerment in the face of adversity, particularly addressing global issues of violence against women and within the music industry. 

The inspiration for the track struck her in a defining moment during her performance at Splendour In The Grass when she remembered all she had battled to get there and felt the incredible connection between the audience and her music. They were people like her, all rising to the music, together. 

In addition to the song release, Áine and her collaborators are taking the opportunity to affect social change. PEOPLE LIKE ME AND YOU is a combined song, short film and social advocacy project. Integrating her musical talents with her experience as an educator and activist, Áine and her team will be providing resources to grassroots organisations supporting survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.

“We’re not just releasing music; we’re shifting things, making change, one step at a time. Our mission is to raise awareness, hope, and to holistically bring art into healing spaces.” – Áine Tyrrell

The accompanying music video, directed and produced by Busty Beatz from Hot Brown Honey, First Nations Film studio Wirrim Media and featuring Riah Pelesa, intricately weaves together the story of Miriam, a Samoan woman navigating the challenges of single motherhood, eviction, and rediscovery of her artistic path. Through Miriam’s journey, the video embodies themes of resilience, hope, and the power of self-discovery.

PEOPLE LIKE ME AND YOU invites listeners to join a journey of transformation, to forge change and create possibilities no matter what the circumstance. As Áine simply puts it,

“If someone like me can stand here against all odds, so can you.”

Available on all streaming platforms Wed 15th May!
