Sinead O’Brien has released new single ‘There Are Good Times Coming’, the third from her upcoming debut album Time Bend and Break The Bower.

The Irish singer-songwriter’s debut album is set for release on 10 June, and ‘There Are Good Times Coming’ comes after ‘Holy Country’ and lead single ‘GIRLKIND’. The music video for the single is directed by frequent collaborator Chloé le Drezen, and is another visually impressive watch. 

Speaking about ‘There Are Good Times Coming’, O’Brien said, “It’s a hyper real, close-up look at the surroundings of this place, and a glance to the horizon. Mundane observations weave in and around concepts of RITUALS, MANIFESTATIONS, INTENTIONS.

‘There Are Good Times Coming’ is not a dream, it’s a restless night.”

Sinead O’Brien is playing at various UK and European festivals over the summer before a European tour in the autumn, including UK and Ireland dates, and is set to support Belle and Sebastian in November. Don’t miss out on tickets:
