After re-locating to the west coast of Ireland, the English singer-songwriter wanted to showcase the wild beauty of her new landscape while performing fan favorites and premiering a new song for NPR.
Anna B Savage has filmed a Tiny Desk concert with NPR near her home in Mullaghmore, west Ireland.
Accompanied only by her acoustic guitar, Savage performed three songs for NPR Music's Tiny Desk (home) concert: 'Corncrakes,' 'Since We Broke Up,' and 'One.' While both 'Corncrakes' and 'One' are featured on her debut album A Common Turn, 'Since We Broke Up' is brand new track that premiered for the first time during this performance.
The last song of Savage's set, 'One,' was originally a track on her 2015 EP. Since then, she has released a number of singles, including 'Dead Pursuits' and 'A Common Tern' that later were included on her debut album.
The English singer-songwriter recently moved to Ireland, and she told NPR that she chose to film in Donegal because she wanted to "showcase some of [her] new, completely wild and amazing landscape."
"I am now living on the west coast of Ireland, so I wanted to show the west coast of Ireland. It's that, all of it," said Savage, pointing behind her at the mossy rocks and beach after performing the first song in her set, 'Corncrakes.'
