Current Hot Press cover star Imelda May is back and bolder than ever with her star-studded sixth studio album.
Dublin singer-songwriter Imelda May is set to perform her brand new song 'Don't Let Me Stand on My Own' with Niall McNamee from upcoming LP 11 Past the Hour on this week's The Late Late Show.
May announced a string of Irish tour dates to support her new LP yesterday, with gigs set to take place in Limerick, Killarney, Belfast, Cork and three nights at Dublin's Vicar Street.
From her home in England, she reflects on feminism, love, the far-right, rejecting Catholicism, embracing paganism, and her creative camaraderie with Bono in the brand new Hot Press interview.
Tomorrow night will also see the debut television performance of 'Crybaby' - the new collaboration between Noel Hogan of The Cranberries and Commitments actress and singer Bronagh Gallagher.
President of Ireland Michael D. Higgins, actress Kathy Bates, Johnny Sexton complete the line-up.
President Michael D. Higgins turns 80 this Sunday, and Ryan sat down with him at Áras an Uachtaráin to discuss the President's hopes for Ireland's future.
Academy Award-winning actress and star of Misery, Titanic, and P.S. I Love You, Kathy Bates, will speak about her attempts to perfect a Ballyfermot accent for The Miracle Club, which she is due to film in Dublin with Maggie Smith and Laura Linney.
Ireland rugby captain Johnny Sexton will be chatting about his chances of making the Lions team, the return of Simon Zebo to Munster, and supporting DEBRA Ireland, which was set up in 1988 by families living with the painful, genetic skin condition epidermolysis bullosa (EB).
Claudia Scanlon, who has EB, will be joined by her mother Liz on the RTÉ show to discuss living with the condition and thriving against all odds.
The Late Late Show airs on RTÉ One this Friday, April 16th at 9:35pm.
Look who’s joining us on the #LateLate this week! 🤩
