The Donegal singer-songwriter returns with the stunning lead single from his upcoming debut album.
Following his stellar sets at Output Belfast and Other Voices in Ballina earlier this year, Joel Harkin returns with 'No Recycling' – the moving lead single from his highly anticipated debut album, Never Happy.
The track finds the Belfast-based singer-songwriter ruminating on family life and inequality, while he brings his lo-fi alternative folk sound to emotional new heights.
"'No Recycling' is about going to visit my da in Spain and thinking about wealth inequality and how the two extremes of it seemed to be present in this small Spanish town," Harkin reveals in a statement about the release.
In the accompanying music video, meanwhile, videographer Charly Sproule explores how, in Harkin's own words, landlords "are pretty much all cowboys."
Harkin's debut album, Never Happy, is out on May 19.
Take a look at the video for 'No Recycling' below:
