Yana shares new single ‘The Traveller’

February 8, 2023

After releasing three singles from her debut album, all to great support from the radio and press alike, Yana is about to share the last taste of her forthcoming album, a poignant track called ‘The Traveller’.

The Czech Republic native has found a spiritual home in Ireland, and explains the friendship that inspired this new song:

“I have a deep connection to this song. I wrote the lyrics in 2018 at Folk holidays festival in Czech Republic, just as Interference returned to play there and also tour the country after 11 long years. The song is strongly connected to the late Fergus O’Farrell, a dear friend and hero, who continues to inspire everyone who knew and loved him. It tries to express a feeling of gratitude of having such an inspirational person in my life”

For Yana, this song completes the circle because she’s joined by Maurice Culligan of Interference who plays the piano and sings the lead vocal. “I have looked up to Interference and Fergus O’Farrell and his songwriting from the moment I discovered it. Ferg remains the greatest inspiration. So to be joined by Maurice on this special song just cements our connection.”

‘The Traveller’ was released on February 2nd 2023, symbolically on 7th anniversary of O’Farrell’s passing.  Available on Bandcamp and Minm exclusively.
