The Return of Damien Rice

There are some artists that you just connect with. The first time that I heard Ireland's Damien Rice, was on a live EP that I received in the mail about 4 years ago. As soon as I listened to that, I was hooked. I immediately purchased O and he has been in my early morning, chill out afternoon and late night playlist ever since. He blew up quite a bit after that. His songs were featured in several movies and it seemed like he was everywhere for awhile. Then, he kind of disappeared.

It turns out that he really didn't go away, he was just having a creative burst. During this burst, he wrote, produced and recorded a new album called 9. The album will be released on November 6 overseas and hopefully the next day, here in the states. The first single is a piano ballad called 9 Crimes and like most of his songs, it features a lot of Lisa Hannigan on both vocals and strings. If this is a good indicator of the album, it will be more of the Damien Rice that we grew to love. Hopefully, a winter tour will be announced soon.

Lisa does occasionally play some guitar, but it's Vyvienne Long who is the cello player for Damien Rice.
