Lisa Hannigan is set to tour Ireland this Autumn, with dates in Wexford, Clare, Limerick, Cork and Belfast.
At Swim, Hannigan’s critically acclaimed third album, was released last year. Produced by Aaron Dessner, Lisa repeated the success of her second album Passenger by scoring her second Irish No. 1, as well as getting her third Choice Prize-nomination in a row.
After touring for two years in support of her previous album Passenger, Hannigan began writing songs for At Swim. Although she struggled to write new material while being in London, away from home and from what she describes as her “usual anchors and points of reference,” Hannigan had a breakthrough when she got an email out of the blue from Aaron Dessner - guitarist in The National and producer of Dark Was the Night and records by Sharon Van Etten, This Is The Kit and Frightened Rabbit, among others. Working with Dessner and rediscovering the collaborative spirit she’d missed in Dublin enabled Hannigan to see her life in London in a different light. At Swim is in part about homesickness and isolation as well as about love.
