Dublin born singer, composer and author Kevin Nolan has announced the release of a new prequel album entitled Absent At The Moment When We Took Up The Most Space.
Nolan released his first album Frederick And The Golden Dawn back in 2014 to critical acclaim. While working on his second album Nolan took a moment to pause and look back on his old recordings that he had made before debut album from as far back as 2006.
This new album is a collection of 38 songs which Nolan had recorded between 1997 and 2005 selected from an archive of over 150 recordings which have never been released before.
Nolan is a self-taught musician who began writing and recording his songs from the age of 13 using his own unique recording techniques. The retrospective album will explore Nolan’s experimentation with acapella, folk, rock-pop and jazz throughout the years of him perfecting his craft.
Nolan is also set to appear at the screening of the documentary HUM, about Nolan himself and his works, at the University College Dublin cinema. RTÉ will also be screening the film directed by Nathan Fagan on June 8th as part of the ShortScreen programme.
Absent At The Moment When We Took Up The Most Space is set to be released next month on the 26th of July.
