Fionn Regan's fourth album on the way

It will be a stripped-back affair...

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 17 Aug 2012

Fionn Regan has confirmed the September 7 release of The Bunkhouse Vol 1: Anchor Black Tattoo, his fourth studio album self-recorded in his own studio with a four-track and a single microphone.

“I did quite a bit of touring on my own earlier this year supporting Feist and although the rooms were big, I felt very much at home on the stage and after that I had a strong instinct to get right down to the brass tacks, back to the essence of what is it that I do as a songwriter, so that’s what I’ve done,” he reflects.

“You can call it folk but I feel in a lot of ways it’s like an Irish punk album, in that it’s pure, it’s stripped down, it goes against the status quo and it was made with just what I have at my disposal. Recording in this way also allowed me to work very quickly, I was documenting as I was writing, so these songs feel very fresh to me, straight out of the ground, which is a really great feeling.”

Themes range from “conversations with the Irish Sea” (‘Mizen To Malin’) to “the hallucinatory” (‘St. Anthony’s Fire’).
