Róisín O Asks Where Will We Be In ‘2023’?

May 21, 2021

As we approach the end of another lockdown it’s hard not to wonder will we ever be the same again. This sentiment is captured brilliantly in ‘2023?’, the brand-new feel good pop-perfect track from Róisín O. Though written during lockdown, ‘2023’ captures the country’s current sentiment, as things begin to open up again and we look forward with optimism & hope for the future.

Written with Cian McSweeney (True Tides) and produced by Phil Magee, (Kodaline, Wild Youth, The Script, The Academic, JC Stewart) 2023 is pop perfection, building enthusiastically throughout before punching through with an upbeat chorus that will have listeners heads bopping all summer.

Speaking about the single Roísín says:

“I wrote ‘2023’ in the depths of the 2nd lockdown when things were pretty grim. It was a great respite to get into studio with Cian, he has such a contagious optimism.”

“That enthusiasm was so refreshing, and the more we worked on the song the more it became about looking forward to the future with optimism and hope.”

“The release of ‘2023’ comes at such a great time, when the summer is stretching out in front of us and we can imagine being with pals again in a garden, or a field, or a beer garden somewhere. That’s when I imagine ‘2023’ will come on. And everyone will bop”.

‘2023’ is out now!
