February 2nd 2022 marks Fergus’ 6th anniversary and with the truly incredible response to Michael McCormack’s award winning and deeply moving film ‘Breaking Out’, we are releasing 11 tracks featured in the film which have been re-mastered by the maestro Bob Ludwig of Gateway Mastering.
The original recordings were restored, re-engineered and mixed by long standing interference producer Dan Dan Fitzgerald in his studio Sound Sound in Cork Ireland.
The tracks chosen represent some of Ferg’s best writing and of the 32 songs used in the film we think these tracks will attract a new listenership to his timeless music. In particular a brand new song, the very last he was working on when he passed, ‘I Owe You Nothing’ has become an instant live favourite.
Fergus never performed this song to an audience, and we have only played it a handful of times with Glen Hansard at the helm in the few years since we lost him.
Written by Fergus and Malcolm MacClancy the song is heavily featured in the film where we see Fergus and Glen with other members of the Frames recording the song in Ferg’s home in Schull west Cork, some two weeks before he finally lost his battle with Muscular Dystrophy.
The song was completed by Karl Odlum with a little help from James O’Leary and Glen Hansard before being shipped off to Bob Ludwig in Portland Maine, USA to be mastered alongside the other ten tracks chosen for the album.
The album simply entitled ‘Breaking Out’ will complement the film which is now available to stream and download from Sky, Virgin, Amazon Prime, iTunes etc in Ireland and the UK and which is set to close the 2022 ‘CRAICFEST’ Film & Music festival in New York City on Saturday 5th March this year.
The tracks are:
Gold, Breaking Out, Wild Bill’s Circus Scene, Something Right, American Townland, Vaj Vaj, Looking For Someone, Cain & Abel, Sail On, I Owe You Nothing and Dark Days.
‘Breaking Out : Interference’ will be released exclusively to Bandcamp on February 2nd 2022
