Here are the details of the new eponymous album from Mick Flannery, plus where you can see him perform this summer.
The Cork singer-songwriter releases his self-titled sixth album this month. Under new management, the album is a new chapter in the award-winning singer’s career.
Rumour has it he named the album Mick Flannery because Hozier had sort of nabbed the title he wanted, ‘Wasteland’, the name of the first track on the album.
His first single on the album, ‘Come Find Me’, references emotional search and rescue. “The song is basically about someone who would like to find a partner but doesn’t quite know where to start. It looks at trying to stay positive about life, even in a city, where crowds of people can make someone feel even more alone,” says Flannery.

The album comes right after the success of the show Evening Train, a musical based on Mick Flannery’s 2007 debut album of the same name.
The play debuted at the Everyman Theatre in June as part of Cork Midsummer Festival.
Mick performed as part of the band for the musical, which saw his concept of an album if tracks based on an night of poker come to life on stage.
