Sean ‘Doctor’ Millar opens his 2023 account with new single, ‘Danny McCoy’, and the announcement of an Irish and European tour.
Talking about the track, Sean says… “ We never know what people are going through on the inside. We imagine, as we drag ourselves through our own life dramas, that everyone else is having an easier ride. I met someone I went to school with, a lovely guy. We hadn’t seen each other for at least thirty years. He told me what he’d been up to. I couldn’t believe how epic a life he’d had. I think he was surprised by mine too.
I wrote this song as a short story to illustrate that but the narrator has a lot of me in him I guess. I’ve said those words to people.”
“I was trying to get that feeling that you get on some John Martyn and Richard Thompson records of effortless performance. ”
Liam o Maonlaí plays the piano, Recorded and mixed by Les Keye, Mastered by Joe Chester.
Alongside the release of the track, Sean has also just announced some Irish and European tour dates for spring.
