ALMIGHTY LOVE the brand new studio album from Damien Dempsey will be released on 28th September 2012.
This much anticipated release was written in Dublin and London and recorded in New Air Studios, London. The album has been over four years in the making and is Dempsey’s most definitive recording to date.
Produced by long term collaborator John Reynolds, ALMIGHTY LOVE includes performances from Sinéad O’Connor and emerging London artist Kate Tempest.
The first single to be taken from the album will be the title track ALMIGHTY LOVE, which is a soaring ballad celebrating the powerful strength of love. The song will be serviced to radio next week.
"Thanks to all the brilliant fans who have been so patient waiting on this album. I hope it lifts all your hearts. Thanks for the support. See youz along the road” - Damo
ALMIGHTY LOVE will be available to pre-order from iTunes Ireland and www.myplaydirect.com/damien-dempsey from Monday 13th August.
Dempsey will embark on a tour of Ireland and the UK this year to support the album release. He will take his legendary live shows to Australia and the US in 2013.
The four years since the release of his album THE ROCKY ROAD have been busy for Dempsey. In addition to writing and recording ALMIGHTY LOVE, Dempsey was involved in recording and performing the Official Irish Euro 2012 Song ‘Rocky Road To Poland’.
The songs lyrics were compiled from suggestions made by the listeners of The Ray D’Arcy Show on Today FM. The single was produced by John Reynolds and reached #1 in the Irish charts. All proceeds from the sale of the single were donated to The John Giles Foundation and The Irish Cancer Society.
Dempsey also collaborated with renowned Irish graffiti artist Maser on the project ‘They Are Us’. Inspired by Dempsey’s lyrics, Maser painted giant masterpieces of Dempsey’s words on derelict buildings in Dublin. His bold colours and style transformed the sounds and poetry of Dempsey’s songs into the very definition of street art on the Dublin cityscape. Sales of the limited edition prints raised funds for The Simon Community, a charity set up to help the homeless.
In December 2010 Dempsey and Glen Hansard, the Oscar winning songwriter, recorded and performed ‘The Auld Triangle’ which raised much needed funds for the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul (SVP) ‘Keep The Lights On’ Campaign.
Dempsey made his acting debut in 2011 in the Irish feature film ‘Between The Canals’. His song ‘Sing All Your Cares Away’ was featured in the BAFTA Award winning film ‘Tyrannosaur’, and he has songs in two upcoming Irish films "Stalker" and "King of the Travellers".
