The Dublin native is back with a black-and-white video to prep you for the show.
Irish singer-songwriter A. Smyth has announced his return to live music with a gig at The Grand Social, Dublin on November 24 of this year.
Celebrating the new show, he's released a new single and music video for the song 'Tempt', off his debut album released in February of this year, Last Animals.
The track comes with a visual directed by Rioghnach Ní Ghrioghair, featuring a young couple's struggles moving in together for the first time.
Rioghnach says that they "wanted to create something humble yet intimate for such a delicate song."
"We were so grateful to work with powerhouse talents Aaron Monaghan and Clare Monnelly in its creation."
Smyth, who names influences including Neil Young, Big Thief and Bruce Springsteen, explains that the song is about "how robust the human spirit is".
"No matter how dark it might get, we have a fail-safe switch that always believes there'll come a crack of light."
The follow-up track to his last single, 'When It Calls', was recorded all in one take with the entire record produced by Darragh Nolan at his Wexford studio.
Smyth has previously played on Other Voices in April of last year, appearing alongside Junior Brother and Thumper.
Tickets for A. Smyth at The Grand Social are available now from ticketmaster.ie.
