The addition of Ella Henderson’s rich vocals brings an extra depth to the raw track, accentuating the emotion of the Cork singer-songwriter's single.
Cork singer-songwriter/producer Cian Ducrot has released a re-imagined version of his latest single, ‘All For You’, with chart topping singer Ella Henderson via Polydor UK.
The heartfelt track explores themes of love, lust and heartbreak in a powerful, melodic way - typical of Cork native Ducrot. The original version of the tender ballad was previewed on this year’s series of ITV show Love Island and was greeted with phenomenal success on TikTok, with more than 150,000 views in twenty minutes.
Ducrot recently entered the Top 10 Irish Singles Chart for the first time with 'All For You' climbing to a new high of number 9. The Tik-Tok star also announced his debut headline UK and Ireland tour, with shows in Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol, Birmingham, Dublin, Limerick and Cork, in addition to his previously announced Lafayette, London show on September 20th (which sold out in less than 24 hours).
After a blossoming friendship that came about after Ella asked Cian to support her on her upcoming UK tour that kicks off in October, the collaboration formed organically.
Falling in love with the single, Ella was enlisted to add a new verse to the track, which the pair wrote together and recorded at Tileyard Studios, London.
Speaking on the collaboration Cian says: “Working with Ella is a dream! She’s not only an incredible artist and performer with the most beautiful voice but she is one of the kindest people I have ever met and worked with. To be going on tour and also having a collaboration together is really special to me and I am so grateful to Ella!
"Working on this new version was very surreal to me as I used to sing some of Ella’s songs back in Ireland when I would busk and gig on the weekends so I am still very much in a pinch me moment!" Cian continued. "We put a lot of love into this version to make it as authentic and real as possible and to maintain the original essence of the song! I’m so excited for everyone to hear it!”
Ella Henderson praised the rising star, who went to LA to pursue his dream of becoming a musician.
“For me Cian is the real deal. He is such a talented musician & authentic artist which is why I chose him to join me on my UK tour later this year in October! It's been a lot of fun getting in the studio & rewriting our new version of ‘All For You’ together. My favourite thing about working with Cian is he is a storyteller which is so important to me when I write a song. We definitely connected the dots on this record to find a way of making the duet feel truthful, raw & honest. I love this song so much & I can’t wait for our fans to hear it!”
