Irish singer songwriter Brian Flanagan, aka U.M.A.N (U Must Act Now) releases his new single ‘Bonfire’ on Friday October 22nd.
Out walking with his six-year-old son, in a quiet moment between the two, curious and full of wonder, he asked unexpectedly “Daddy, can we build a bonfire”. The two spent the rest of the day building what would become not only that bonfire but a memory of shared connection between father and son. Reflecting on the experience, Brian said “It’s through non-verbal cues, we build our strongest connections as humans. Right there in the warm glow we didn’t have to say a word, we close our eyes and dare to dream.” BONFIRE tells that story.
Having signed with Universal Music Ireland after landing one of the most played songs on Irish radio with his debut release ‘Flamin Day’ in 2017, U.M.A.N has followed up with a string of critically acclaimed singles ‘Lord’, ‘The Adele Song’ & ‘Feel Beautiful’.
Receiving significant national airplay and performing two sold out Irish tours along with a well received Late Late appearance to date, U.M.A.N’s eagerly awaited debut album, is due for release in 2022. ‘BONFIRE’ gives us a taste of what’s to come.
