The Irish artist's third album is out next month.
Following the release of his acclaimed project Year Of The Bird in 2015, Oliver Cole has announced his highly anticipated third album, Father Brother Son – set to arrive on October 30. To coincide with the announcement, the Irish songwriter and musician has shared 'You Were The Right Turn', the first single from the upcoming album.
Oliver Cole initially came to prominence as the singer, songwriter and main guitarist with three-piece Turn, who were signed to Infectious Records in London – home to Muse, Ash and Garbage, among others. Included among the highlights of his career with Turn were sold-out gigs at Vicar Street, a standout performance at the Oxegen in 2005, three Irish Top 10 albums, and a Choice Music Prize nomination.
Oliver left the band in 2006, and began work on his first solo album, We Albatri, which was recorded in Germany. Upon its release, Hot Press described the project as "heartfelt, honest, tuneful and true."
'You Were the Right Turn' finds Oliver exploring themes of recovery and redemption, and the healing that begins after the acceptance of the loss. It features appearances from Graham Hopkins (Glen Hansard, The Frames, The Cranberries), Robbie Malone (David Gray) and Colm Querney (Lir).
