Anna Mullarkey shares new single and music video ‘Falling Apart’ and announces album ‘Falling’

June 28, 2022

Galway singer and composer Anna Mullarkey releases her ethereal new single ‘Falling Apart’ today, Monday, 27 June 2022, via Strange Brew and shares the accompanying music video.

The musician has also announced her forthcoming debut album Falling, out on Friday, 19 August 2022.

Anna Mullarkey plays the Róisín Dubh as part of the Galway Arts Festival on Thursday, 14th July. Tickets €14 + booking fee on sale now. Ticket link.

On the single, Mullarkey uses her signature gossamer vocals to tell the story of a relationship collapsing. “‘Falling Apart’ is a song about the end of a relationship,” Anna says. “It’s about that moment you realise it is over and you have to let them go.”

The music video, directed by Mia Mullarkey, explores this narrative through contemporary dance with dancers Robyn Byrne and Emily Kilkenny Roddy as a couple as they find themselves both bound together while growing apart.

‘Falling Apart’ is underscored by Mullarkey’s dramatic piano, electronic drums, and synth. She arranged the song with Sam Wright, who contributed double bass and electric bass. The track marries Irish traditional music elements with modern production, making for an expansive, cinematic listen.

Collaborators on the song include Paul McClure on bodhrán and accordion, Ciara O’Connor on cello,  David Shaughnessy on drums, Dara Finneran on modular drums, and Luke Murray on backing vocals. The track was mixed by Frankie J. Pollard and mastered by Liam King.
