Pink Rabbits – the project of songwriter Paul Walsh – will release a new single, ‘Home’ on February 25th.
It’s the third single to be released by the Galway native this year, following his debut single, ‘It’s Over’ in April 2021 and ‘This Is What We Came For’ in June.
The song was written during lockdown. “I bought a portable keyboard during lockdown last year and this was the first song I wrote on it. The melody/chorus was something that I had already created on guitar, but it sounded better on piano. The lyrics fell into place pretty quickly. After bringing it to my producer Ciaran Parnell, we added more instruments,” said Paul Walsh.
Walsh says the solemnness of lockdown had a bearing on the lyrics. “I think it did have an effect. Lockdown was a weird time for most of us. The primal need for us all is to be safe I think and this song captures that emotion. In these times, ‘Home’ can be a place of safety, or as the song suggests, ‘Home’ can be anywhere or anyone you feel safe with.”
The song is from his debut album, which will be released in Summer 2022. “I decided to add one or two newer songs to the track list, so work is ongoing on those tracks.” said Paul.
Paul is also known as a popular sports broadcaster on Virgin TV, presenting the sports news on the daily news bulletins.
‘Home’ will be available to stream on Spotify, iTunes and other streaming platforms. The song will also be available to buy as a download on Bandcamp.
