Irish artist Sinead O’Brien has released a new track, ‘Multitudes’, lifted from her upcoming debut album Time Bend and Break The Bower. The song follows previous entries ‘There Are Good Times Coming’, ‘Girlkind’, ‘Kid Stuff’, and ‘Holy Country’. Listen below.
“‘Multitudes’ – the word itself was the first choice,” O’Brien explained in a statement. “It is not neat, it describes loose ends, open ends. Working with opposing forces and contradictions. An interrogation into the obstacles which pervade our daily lives; it’s a song about desire and creativity.”
She continued: “The album title Time Bend and Break The Bower, from this song ‘Multitudes’, came into my head and made its demands, an idea that pressed on me throughout the record. It has a very active role. The clock symbol is enlarged, it looms like a moon over my activity watching, counting me down to zero. Dripping with self sabotage and the feeling of being chased; it pulls and pushes against the verses which talk of ’Multitudes’; the things that faithfully come back – the images, the words, creativity. It is creativity itself. That’s what I’m talking about.”
Time Bend and Break The Bower is set to arrive on June 10 via Chess Club Records.
