Aoife Nessa Frances says that her song should be listened to outside in nature, "where you can experience wind and sun on your skin."
Aoife Nessa Frances' latest album Protector, which has been nominated for the Choice Music Prize for 'Album Of The Year', was released last October via Partisan Records to critical acclaim. The singer-songwriter has now shared a new single, 'Automatic Love', as a follow-up to her latest LP.
To celebrate her new album and perform the songs live, the singer announced that she will attend the Body & Soul Festival at Ballinlough Castle in West Meath on June 16-18.
'Automatic Love' gazes into a new realm of immense beauty surrounded by the chaos of love. It was produced by Brendan Jenkinson and features performances from Brendan Doherty, Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh and Méabh McKenna.
The Irish singer will perform at the RTÉ Choice Music Prize ceremony on March 9th, where Protector has been nominated for Irish Album of the Year. Frances' new single will be part of her three-song set for RTÉ Concert Orchestra Presents: New Irish Recordings, which will air on RTE 1 at 2pm on March 17th.
Frances' new single 'Automatic Love' is about „handing yourself over to the unknown, giving in to the unpredictability of nature.“
"I spent time alone writing, learning to love myself so that I could experience deeper love for those close to me. It is about a divine connection to something greater than yourself. It is a form of prayer for the chaos of love. I was spending so much time outside, wandering and watching Autumn's decay, subconsciously planting seeds for Spring.“ the singer said.
