Sinead O’Brien has released a new track, ‘Multitudes’.
The song is taken from her debut album ‘Time Bend and Break The Bower’, due for release 10th June via Chess Club Records. She’s also set to appear on Later… with Jools Holland this weekend, broadcast on Saturday, 21st May.
“‘Multitudes’ – the word itself was the first choice. It is not neat, it describes loose ends, open ends. Working with opposing forces and contradictions.” explains Sinead; “An interrogation into the obstacles which pervade our daily lives; it’s a song about desire and creativity.”
“The album title “Time Bend and Break The Bower”, from this song ‘Multitudes’, came into my head and made its demands, an idea that pressed on me throughout the record. It has a very active role. The clock symbol is enlarged, it looms like a moon over my activity watching, counting me down to zero. Dripping with self sabotage and the feeling of being chased; it pulls and pushes against the verses which talk of ’Multitudes’; the things that faithfully come back – the images, the words, creativity. It is creativity itself. That’s what I’m talking about.”
