This special headline show is set to support the band’s latest album Time Stopped.
The album was recorded at Dublin’s Cambden Studios, and Eastcote Studios in London. It was also produced by George Murphy, who has also worked with bands such as Mumford & Sons, Ellie Goulding and the Specials.
It was also mixed by Grammy award winner Peter Katis. Time Stopped also features long time collaborators of the Coronas, including Cathal McSweeney, John Broe, Dave O’Keefe and Lar Kaye.
Coronas Danny O’Reilly Talks Through Each Coronas Track
The album, which is out now, features tracks Write Your Own Soundtrack, Strive and If You Let Me.
Coronas singer Danny O’Reilly recently spoke about each track on the record.
‘Don’t You Say You’re In Love’
“When George Murphy (producer) heard the demo, he thought it was a strong contender for the opening track. The biggest change from the demo to the finished version was the “…or say I misunderstood…” section, which George felt the song needed and which I’m very glad we added”, the Coronas lead singer stated.
“Co-written with frequent collaborator Cian MacSweeney (lead singer of True Tides) it features a live Hare Krishna drum loop, recorded on Cian’s phone in the middle of Rathmines”.
Other tracks on this latest Coronas album also include, ‘The Best Worrier’, ‘Karma’, ‘At Least We’ll Always Have LA’, ‘Getaway Car’, ‘Take Me With You If You’re Leaving’, ‘Time Stopped, and ‘Blessed To Call You On My Own’.
On the track ‘Karma’, O’Reilly also added, “I co-wrote the song as well as Knoxy, Conor and my sister Roisin. John helped move the song from a simple song to something different, something that has a journey”.
News of this headline gig and new album comes just months after the Coronas performed at Trinity College as part of the Summer Series back in July. More on this here.
