‘Almighty Love’ is the brand new studio album from Damien Dempsey, and it will be released here in Ireland on Friday the 28th of September 2012.
This much anticipated release by Damien Dempsey was written in Dublin and London, while being fully recorded in New Air Studios, London. The album has been over four years in the making and is Damien 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 during August 2012.
“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 you along the road” - Damo
‘Almighty Love’ by Damien Dempsey will be available to pre-order from iTunes Ireland from Monday the 13th of August 2012.
The four years since the release of his album ‘The Rocky Road’ have been busy for Damien Dempsey. In addition to writing and recording Almighty Love, Damien 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.
Damien Dempsey also collaborated with renowned Irish graffiti artist Maser on the project ‘They Are Us’. Inspired by Damien Dempsey’s lyrics, Maser painted giant masterpieces of Damien Dempsey’s words on derelict buildings in Dublin. His bold colours and style transformed the sounds and poetry of Damien 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, Damien 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.
Damien 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”.
