Somebody’s Child, aka Cian Godfrey, has released his newest single ‘I Need Ya’ – a taster of his upcoming debut self-titled album due for release 3rd February via Frenchkiss Records.
The album was created with producer Mikko Gordon (The Smile, Gaz Coombes, Thom Yorke) at East London’s Hackney Road Studios. Speaking about the release, Godfrey said, “This was one of the first songs that defined the sound and pace of the album. We’ve been playing it live for a while now and have been dying to get it out. Some of this album can be boiled down back to my chronic fear of growing older. To me this track in particular is a gentle reminder to stay young for as long as you can.”
Godfrey has also released an accompanying music video for the single. “Drift culture is a big thing in Ireland and when the director came to me with the idea I immediately thought it was cool as some of my friends are big into it. We didn’t want an emotional video but something fun and energetic, while also shining light on an Irish subculture that goes a little unnoticed. It was a lot of fun,” he said.
Somebody’s Child will soon be embarking on a tour of the UK, Ireland, and Europe, with London, Manchester, and Amsterdam shows already sold out. He will also be making his US debut at SXSW, as well as performing at Rough Trade East in London.
