Emer Dunne announces brand new music taken from her upcoming long-player album, Hourglass. Original song ‘Daisy’ will be available for download on MARCH 26th (with all Profits to Irish Cancer Society) + Cover songs: ‘The Parting Glass’ and ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’.
Laois based singer, Emer Dunne, who is due to release the first single, Daisy, on March 26th from her astounding new album entitled, Hourglass has decided to donate all the profits from her single to a charity close to many of our own hearts, The Irish Cancer Society.
March 2020 saw a change across many parts of the world. We have all been affected and many of our great charities have suffered as a result of not being able to run the fundraising events of the past.
“ I didn’t set out to record a song for charity. I was just working on this album and the way things went this past year the release was delayed. The date was then set for March 26th and when I discovered this was also Daffodil Day, I decided that during these difficult times perhaps I can give something back. Everyone knows someone who has had to suffer at the evil hands of cancer. On a personal note, I have three aunties and an uncle who all suffered from Cancer and my mother is currently battling this illness. I have watched her bravery over the past few months and observed first hand the fantastic work and support given by The Irish Cancer Society”.
‘Daisy’ is a positive uplifting song where the singer is reminding ‘Daisy’ that all people don’t view the world in the same way and as the lyrics state, “people don’t think like you do and some don’t think at all.” The track is written by Scottish songwriter, Karine Polwart, and the song struck a chord with Emer. She immediately took it to her producer, Bill Shanley (who works with Mary Black & Gilbert O Sullivan etc). Emer knew it would be one of the ten tracks to make its way onto her new album. A talented songwriter in her own right, Emer could relate to the lyrics of this song, and with Bill Shanley at the helm she could see the opportunity for bringing a unique and vibrant arrangement to it.
‘Daisy’ was recorded between Dublin and London with Bill Shanley, Andrew Holdsworth, Colin Farrell and Jonathan Owens. The song is available to purchase on digital platforms including iTunes & Amazon music, for only €1.29. Please tell your friends and help raise money for much needed cause.
Daisy is part of a radio sampler pack which also includes cover songs of Irish favourites ‘The Parting Glass’ and ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’, performed beautifully by Emer
