Heralding the release of his highly-anticipated debut album, Nealo's latest single, 'Let Your Dreams Collect Dust Until You're Desperate' marks out some of the album’s themes: emigration, loss, and transformation. It's signature Nealo, piercing and honest.
“When I was 21, I worked in an insurance company," Nealo explains. "It was your average suit and tie cubicle job. I despised it. I had a dream of moving to Canada and exploring a new part of the world, but everyday I trudged down to the multi-story office beside the Blanchardstown Centre and clocked in.
“I used to stay up until 3am so that work seemed further away. One morning I got halfway to the office, looked down and realised that I was wearing one white runner and one black shoe with my suit. I had been up so late and gotten dressed in my sleep. I think I was in such a bad place at a time that I couldn’t even see the funny side of that.
“Eventually I applied for a visa to Canada and booked flights to Vancouver," he continues. "I handed in my notice and that was it. No more insurance company. The whole experience had a huge lasting effect on me. Now I can’t stand the thought of being caged up and I’ve worked my whole life to avoid that. Monday morning for me is walking dogs in the forest and hanging with my son. It’s music, and trees and animals.”
• All The Leaves Are Falling will be released on October 30.
