Ailbhe Reddy has shared that she will be releasing a new album, ‘Endless Affair’, on 17th March 2023.
Today, Ailbhe has dropped ‘Shitshow’, a teaser of what is to come for the much-anticipated new album. The new release will follow her 2020 debut, ‘Personal History’, and arrives alongside a music video which involves a house party, silly string and a worse-for-wear Colin The Caterpillar.
Discussing the new single, Ailbhe says: “Shitshow came from a lyric I played with for a few months which was ‘my god, look at the state of me, this is so embarrassing, won’t you take me home?’ It’s kind of addressing another person and kind of addressing myself from the perspective of the morning after. I had those lyrics for a while and while working with Tommy McLaughlin on the record he jokingly said we should call the album Shitshow and I vowed to work that word into a lyric so it perfectly fit into this song.”
“It’s about looking back on a night out with regret while also addressing and apologising to an ex-partner about my antics. The first verse is to myself and the second verse is to someone else. It’s kind of a tongue in cheek examination of a bad hangover.”
Ailbhe has also shared a string of tour dates for 2023, set to kick off in Cambridge on 12th April. The full list of dates are as follows.
