The songs that got away
Villagers have unveiled their new EP, The Sunday Walker, today. The new release consists of four songs that were recorded around the time of The Art Of Pretending To Swim sessions.
While the EP is already available to stream on Spotify and other platforms, the vinyl release of The Sunday Walker is due on November 22.
Frontman Conor O'Brien says about the new EP, "The tracks that fell through the cracks; it turns out they had their own story to tell. The Sunday Walker EP is a collection of lost songs as much as it is an emotional arc. Songs of loss and songs of realisation. Songs of empathy and isolation."
Villagers head out on a European tour later this week including the renowned Rolling Stone Festival in Germany before returning to Ireland for a run of sold out shows in Dublin and Cork in December. Check out the full list of Irish tour dates below:
- Tues 10th Dec – Cyprus Avenue, Cork
- Wed 11th Dec – Cyprus Avenue, Cork
- Fri 13th Dec – Vicar Street, Dublin
- Sat 14th Dec – Vicar Street, Dublin
The Sunday Walker EP is the first release from the folk band since their surprise single 'Summer's Song' which came out back in July.
