For 2 years we have been isolating from each other. Many have been anxious and alone.
Throughout these lonesome days, music and songs have been a salve and an inspiration. During that time Irish folk rock band Scullion have recorded an uplifting and inspirational collection of songs for the head and heart and will take to the highway, collapse distance and bring us back together in the halls, front rooms, back rooms and bar rooms of Ireland. This compelling album, ‘Time Has Made a Change in Me’, will be shared September 2022, coinciding with an album launch tour across the country.
Today, the band share a new song from the album, ‘All the Bells in Spain’.
With lyrics by the band’s prolific songwriter Sonny Condell, he explains “This song was written as a way of dodging making a speech as father of the bride at my Daughter’s wedding. It was a big nervous gamble, could I write it? And in time, would they like it? Would the hired guitar be playable? But it all worked out, and it was first performed as the sun set over the Mediterranean sea, and that happy day was in 2018.”
Formed in the mid-1970’s, Scullion are revered and feted as one of Ireland’s most innovative, original and brilliant live bands. Their upcoming new record emphasises the band’s musical curiosity and like all of the band records, it breaks new ground.
Bob Dylan, James Joyce and Sufjan Stevens are woven into the DNA of this record with the inspirational music of Sonny Condell beating at the heart of the thing.
Scullion’s new album “Time Has Made a Change in Me” is due out September 22nd.
