Announced: Lisa O’Neill – All Of This Is Chance + ‘Old Note’

Lisa O’Neill, one of the most evocative songwriters in contemporary Irish music today, returns with this new album, and her first for the Rough Trade label, the beautiful, resonant All Of This Is Chance, to be released on 10th February and available on exclusive silver vinyl at indie retail and the webstore. 

The album follows five BBC Folk Awards nominations and a Folk Album of the Year accolade in The Guardian in 2019 for her recent album Heard a Long Gone Song on Rough Trade’s River Lea imprint, The Wren EP in 2019 and an adaptation of Bob Dylan’s ‘All the Tired Horses’ for the final scene of epic TV drama Peaky Blinders.
A raconteur in the truest sense of the word, O’Neill starts this extraordinary collection here on earth, on Irish soil, hands in the land. The album features orchestral masterpieces such as the ambitious and cinematic ‘Old Note,’ the title track ‘All Of This Is Chance’, inspired by the great Monaghan writer Patrick Kavanagh’s prescient meditation on The Great Hunger as well as stirring meditations on nature, birds, berries, bees, and blood that ring out over a clacking banjo, dusting and devastating all those in its wake.
