National Album Day, held on Saturday 14 October, will celebrate the 90s this year, as well as 75 years of the album format.
Originally from Dundalk, The Corrs started their career gigging in local pubs around Ireland in 1990, the renowned band has gone on to release seven albums, including their platinum selling album Talk on Corners. After performing all over the world, the band is now sharing their pop rock and folk tunes with thousands as they tour Australia and New Zealand later this year.
“We're delighted to be ambassadors for this year's National Album Day to celebrate the art of the album! said the band. “Forgiven, Not Forgotten was our debut album originally released 28 years ago back in 1995. Its release came at such a special moment in time for us and it's been a real pleasure revisiting the memories as we've put together this special limited edition recycled colour vinyl.”
