Lankum Announce New Album ’The Livelong Day’


Lankum - The Wild Rover (Official Video):

Exceptional Dublin group Lankum will release their new album ’The Livelong Day’ on 25th October. Pre-order* the album and watch the breathtaking video for “The Wild Rover”, in which director Ellius Grace “visualises the mythical Irish landscape to respond to the feeling of ancient Ireland that the track conveys so strongly” here

*Physical orders from the Rough Trade Records webstore come with an exclusive signed print and a ’Stories Of The Songs’ fanzine written by the band, featuring exclusive behind the scenes photos and detailed histories of a selection of songs from the album. 

Of “The Wild Rover”, the four-piece explain: “It’s a fairly popular song which most of you will be somewhat familiar with, though this version and its extra verse - which we got from legendary Drogheda singer Donal Maguire - turns the the happy-go-lucky narrative firmly on its head”

Made up of brothers Ian and Daragh Lynch, Cormac MacDiarmada and Radie Peat, Lankum have gained worldwide acclaim for their first two albums and captivating, often euphoric live performances. ‘The Livelong Day’, recorded and produced by John ‘Spud’ Murphy in the Meadow and Guerrilla Sounds studio, through March and May of 2019 successfully blends alternative folk and psychedelia. Lankum are about to fully cement their reputation as one of the most unique and talked about groups to emerge from Ireland in decades.
