Her hotly anticipated live album has another preview, out now.
Spanish folk singer Sarah McQuaid has released the final taster from her upcoming live album, The St Buryan Sessions, 'The Sun Goes on Rising'.
Due to be released on October 9, the album was recorded at St Buryan Church, Cornwall in England, near where Sarah and her family live now. She previously lived in Ireland for 13 years.
The new song was co-written with Irish singer-songwriter Gerry O'Beirne with Sarah describing it as a "bluesy, atmospheric song."
Having written the track over 10 years ago, she "kept coming back to it for glimmers of hope in dark times."
Take a look at the video below:
Sarah has previously collaborated with Gerry on the prior single, 'Time to Love'.
"Gerry is the kind of songwriter that I’ve always aspired to be,” she says in an introductory video for the latter track.
"Co-writing with him has generated some of the best songs I’ve ever written, even if it can be a little bit of a fraught process at times."
It is the seventh single she's released from the album, a follow-up to her 2015 record, Walking into White.
On the album, she pays tribute to Gerry who has produced records for her in the past and legendary English guitarist Michael Chapman. She covers the latter's 1970 track 'Rabbit Hills', in another fine performance from the sessions.
