Moncrieff's first release since signing to German label Energie Musik; 'Warm' was taken from the Waterford artist's 2022 EP.
Moncrieff has been announced as the winner of the RTÉ Choice Music Prize Song Of The Year for 'Warm'.
Described as Moncrieff’s "first-ever love song", 'Warm' is both deeply personal and infectiously catchy. The cinematic visuals for the new offering effortlessly reflects these elements with style. A track about acceptance and dealing with another person’s faults, it feels soothing, like a sonic safety net of sorts.
Speaking of the single Moncrieff (real name Chris Breheny) says: “Nobody’s perfect. This song is about being that person, and that rare moment in life when you find that person that truly sees you for you, your imperfections, flaws and scars as well as your good traits and loves you for them. It’s a really comforting and happy feeling to just know that all you have to do is be yourself.”
Catch him performing live at Trinity Ball this year. Voted for by the public, the Waterford man faced stiff competition in the 18th year of the Choice Prize.
Fontaines D.C, Dermot Kennedy, Cian Ducrot, CMAT, Biig Piig and five more talents were nominated for Irish Song of the Year 2022 for hits like 'I Love You', 'Something To Someone', 'All For You', 'Nashville' and 'Kerosene'.
Cian Ducrot, Lea Heart, Moncrieff, Ye Vagabonds, SELLÓ and Walshy also made the list for 'All For You', 'Happier', 'Warm', 'Blue is the Eye', 'NO LOVE' and 'All Day (feat Nonô)' respectively.
