One of the most successful Irish albums of all time, A Woman's Heart sold more than 750,000 copies in Ireland alone after its release in 1992. The album also featured iconic Irish artists Mary Black, Dolores Keane, Sharon Shannon and Frances Black.
A cover version of its title track 'Only A Woman's Heart' was released by Irish Women in Harmony in July this year. Only A Woman' is the collective's original spin on the iconic Irish song, originally sung by both Mary Black and McEvoy.
The new track features a haunting vocal introduction by McEvoy herself, with electrifying spoken-word verses, written and performed by Nigerian-Irish poet, performer, and playwright, Felicia Olusanya, AKA FeliSpeaks. The verses are punctuated with choruses from Aimee, Erica Cody, and RuthAnne Cunningham who provide soaring vocal performances that only add to power of the song.
The cover stemmed from the public reaction to ‘Dreams’, when people said the Irish Women In Harmony collective reminded them of A Woman’s Heart, according to RuthAnne, who also produced the track.
