The new album "Darling Arithmetic" will be released on the 13th of April. It will be available on CD, LP and as a digital download.

Darling Arithmetic was written, recorded, produced and mixed by O’Brien at home - the loft of a converted farmhouse that he shares in the coastal town of Malahide to the north of Dublin - revealing a single-minded artist at the peak of his already considerable songwriting powers. It encompasses the various shades of feeling – desire, obsession, lust, loneliness and confusion, and deeper into philosophical and existential territory, across a cast of lovers, friends, family and even strangers. Backing up his supple and emoting vocal and guitar is the subtlest palate of instrumentation – piano, Mellotron (which accounts for the album’s occasional horn and cello tones) and brushes. O’Brien plays every instrument on these exquisite, melodic songs in a sparse, spacious, acoustic-leaning fashion.

Conor O’Brien’s Villagers project has announced a third album. Darling Arithmetic will be released on April 13 on Domino. O’Brien recorded the album in his home town of Malahide, Ireland, and he’s released a video for the album opener “Courage” for the occasion.

“Courage” and its video are fragile, ethereal and exquisite. The feather-light touch inherent to Villagers’ songwriting finds a home in O’Brien’s voice, and the video, in turn, never leaves the chair in which he sits. The Irish songwriter has an acoustic guitar, a new beard, and a far-off look in his eye, deep in thought amidst a growing swell of synths and bass.

The video was directed by Niall Cullinane Sean Leonard.
