Mick Flannery & Susan O’Neill Release Video For ‘Are We Free?’

November 23, 2021

Mick Flannery and Susan O’Neill have released an official video for “Are we Free?”, their current single off their highly acclaimed collaboration album.

Filmed partly on location at The Cork Opera House late October, where they started their tour to a capacity audience as Ireland opened up its live music sector again.

Continuing their collaboration with West Cork director Christopher Luke, the clip showcases the pair’s electrifying energy on stage whilst introducing yet another solid offering off the album.

Speaking about the video, Susan comments; “Are we Free? is a song in the album where the characters are at some of  their worst in a fight. It was fun to perform a song in this way.” 

Also performed on the Late Late show last month, ‘Are we Free?” has spent the past 3 weeks on the Shazam charts, as well as the Spotify viral top 50 in Ireland.

Currently in the midst of a sold-out Irish tour in support of the release, Mick and Susan came back last month from an extensive U.S tour, where they were personally invited by Phoebe Bridgers as her special guests when she played the Mann Centre in Philadelphia.

Phoebe and Mick have been mutual fans for a while. Describing her feelings for their new record Phoebe simply said ‘I love this F****** record’.  The sentiment is shared across the board with American Songwriter calling it ‘A sorrowful masterpiece’ , The Independent saying ‘It’s been a long long time since a record like this has come around” and Clash simply calling it “Superb”.

‘Chain Reaction’ the lead single from the duet album won ‘Best Original Song’ at this past week’s RTÉ Radio 1 Folk awards held at Vicar Street, ‘In the Game’ also received a nomination for ‘Best Album’.

In the past week, Mick Flannery also announced his biggest headline show to date, at the Iveagh Gardens, July 7th 2022. Playing with a full band Mick will take to the stage with old favourites, some new songs, and tracks from In The Game with Susan.

Tickets from €40 on sale through Ticketmaster.ie this Friday, November 26, at 9am.
