Paddy Casey Releases Double Album
Paddy Casey’s fifth album ‘Turn This Ship Around’, a double album, is released today (6 August 2021). Available from https://www.paddycaseymusic.com/merch and across all digital platforms.
Speaking of the new album, Paddy Casey said: “The double album took a few years longer than I thought but life has a way of getting in the way of your plans so I didn’t mind, anyway it’s better to let things come in their own time. I think it’s the best album I’ve made so far, there are a few magic moments throughout it that I’m pretty proud of and some bits that I just let happen and took me by surprise. One side is kind of folk vibes while the other is more upbeat and full of my favourite toys and noises. There’s even a third side but I thought that might be pushing my luck!”
Single ‘Won’t Take Much’ from part one of the double album ‘Turn This Ship Around’ is available to stream now across all digital platforms. A bouncy, uplifting, guitar-driven song bursting with brass and strings, the single reflects the upbeat, electric, synth and guitar driven side to the album, while the second part embodies a more laid-back, acoustic vibe.
Having been at the forefront of the Irish music scene since his multi platinum selling debut album ‘Amen (So Be It)’, Paddy Casey’s career has taken him all over the globe touring with acts like The Pretenders, R.E.M, Ian Brown, Blondie and Tracy Chapman to name a few. Closer to home he has played all over Ireland, including a sold out Dublin Castle, RDS and a record-breaking week long run in The Olympia Theatre, alongside special guest spots with U2, Pearl Jam, Bob Dylan and more.
Paddy Casey’s hugely successful debut album ‘Amen (So Be It)’ achieved many international highlights including tracks being featured in hit television shows such as ‘Dawson’s Creek’ and ‘Roswell’ alongside extensive American and European tours. Further establishing himself as one of the country’s most successful artists, his second album ‘Living’ went on to become one of the biggest ever selling albums in Ireland (approximately 15 times platinum).
This was followed by the release of ‘Addicted To Company, Part 1’, with this album seeing Paddy Casey continue to tour across America, performing on The Late Show with David Letterman, securing a week-long slot on MTV and even managing to have drinks with Beyoncé and Jay Z along the way. After the release of this album Paddy Casey decided that it was time to part ways with his record label and go independent in order to let himself and his music veer off in any direction the wind carried them, resulting in his first release ‘The Secret Life Of’ – a resounding success with the album reaching platinum status.
