Dream From The Deep Well is the new album from Brigid Mae Power set for release on 30th June on Fire Records. Today we reveal new track ‘The Waterford Song’. Brigid will also be touring the new album across the UK from 21st September as well as two exclusive solo in-stores next month.
Out today, Brigid Mae Power releases a lovelorn and longing version of Tim Buckley’s ‘I Must Have Been Blind’ from ‘Blue Afternoon’. A stunning interpretation that showcases Power’s vocal range and ability to harness a classic that’s completely her own.
Recognised as a purveyor of dreamier pop with folky leanings, new album, Dream From The Deep Well, is a departure; a unique marriage of traditional stylings and very modern melodies; a breath-taking soundtrack which underpins her gorgeous vocal.
In these ever-confusing and often annoying times, Brigid brings us modern folk for modern folk, with her evocative vocal, doubling back on itself with strings, steel guitar, horns and mellotron adding to its baroque loveliness. Filled with personal tales of offspring and grandparents, the lovelorn and the lost, it’s the essence of re-imagined folk music. It waves back at her rootsy past, daubing new colours on a much-loved canvas. It’s a new visionary beginning from a gifted songwriter.
Dream From The Deep Well is politically primed and socially aware; a broadside for us all, this is Brigid Mae Power’s most complete album yet.
