Alice Merton has announced a Dublin gig at Whelan’s on Thursday 21st March 2019.
Her first single – the only song she has ever released shot straight to No. 1 and exploded into an international smash.
The breakout success of ‘No Roots’ ignited a run of transcontinental gigs, interviews, and television performances but the 25-year-old was writing and recording songs towards her debut album whenever she got a sliver of free time.
Alice’s debut album, MINT is due January 18th via Paper Plane Records International.
For Alice, it’s her whirlwind story that makes the songs:
“Some talk about growing up and moving around a lot,” the English-German artist observes, “But a lot of others discuss the struggles we’ve had with starting a label, the feeling of trying to prove yourself to everyone.”
‘No Roots’ topped Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart in the US, hit the Top Ten in further nine countries, streamed more the 300 million times and has sold over a million units which ultimately helped her go platinum in seven countries.
In addition to 7 Platinum Awards for her debut single in Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Switzerland, Austria and Turkey, Alice Merton has also won the Echo Award, EBBA Award and two awards for pop culture.
“Merton is the first woman to top the Rock Airplay Chart since Lorde” – Billboard
