"There were full moon parties, half moon and no-moon parties every night. Where the sun dog tribe would dance till the sun came up and cheers it as it rose at dawn. The single has a little of that inspiration for Irish beaches this summer," Jack L said about his forthcoming single 'Sundogs in the Moonshine'.
Irish performer Jack Lukeman has announced his new album Echo On, which is set for release on 19 September. The lead single 'Sundogs in the Moonshine' will be out this Friday, 5 August across all digital platforms.
Commonly known as Jack L, the Athy-born songwriter, musician, record producer, vocal artist and broadcaster has a career spanning 25 years and has been described as both enigmatic and magnificent. His forthcoming single is "the summer single we have all been waiting for - a homage to the sun hunters of the world and the ever-present full moon beach parties held in exotic places", according to the press release.
Jack L explained that 'Sundogs in the Moonshine' was inspired by his travel experiences. “During our recent times when travelling was restricted, I began to reminisce about some of the great travelling adventures I’ve had. ‘Sundogs in the Moonshine’ took me back to the beautiful islands of Thailand in the early noughties.
"There were full moon parties, half moon and no-moon parties every night. Where the sun dog tribe would dance till the sun came up and cheers it as it rose at dawn. The single has a little of that inspiration for Irish beaches this summer," he said.
The new track follows his 2020 live album Streamed - The Best of the Lockdown Sessions - Vol 1, featuring the single 'Somewhere In My Heart', a unique cover of the classic by Scottish pop/new wave band Aztec Camera.
Lukeman is also set to play a headline show at Dublin's 3Arena on 25 November, following his tour with Jools Holland and Sting throughout the summer. Fans can expect a spectacular live performance, featuring his greatest hits as well as live favourites.
