When you hear the lyrics of ‘More Time’, the first track on Eileen Gogan And The Instructions new album, ‘Under Moving Skies’, you know it’s by an Irish artist. Sure, you might argue, Eileen Gogan’s very name is a bit of a give away, but I think it goes further than that. There’s a certain melancholy to Irish music; you’ll hear it in The Cranberries, The Corrs, U2 – even more recent Irish artists such as Inhaler, Jedward, Columbia Mills, and Robert O’Connor have it. Kodaline has it. And Eileen Gogan has it in spades.
The Corrs return on November 10 with their new album, ‘Jupiter Calling’, on East West Records. Produced by T-Bone Burnett, who recently worked on Imelda May’s album, ‘Life. Love. Flesh. Blood’, the sibling band will return to The Royal Albert Hall, London, on 19 October, in celebration of the album.
