Watch: Lisa O’Neill – Silver Seed

Lisa O’Neill, one of the most evocative songwriters in contemporary Irish music today, is sharing a new track with accompanying video, ‘Silver Seed’ from her upcoming album, the beautiful, resonant All of This Is Chance, out February 10th, 2023. ‘Silver Seed’ follows earlier album singles ‘Old Note’ and ‘Goodnight World’.

A raconteur in the truest sense of the word, O’Neill is a five time BBC Folk Award nominee and her previous album Heard a Long Gone Song was named The Guardian’s 2019 Folk Album of the Year. Her adaptation of Bob Dylan’s ‘All the TiredHorses’ soundtracked the final scene of epic TV drama Peaky Blinders. All of This Is Chance features orchestral masterpieces such as the ambitious and cinematic ‘OldNote’, and the title track which was inspired by the great Monaghan writer Patrick Kavanagh’s prescient meditation on The Great Hunger. Stirring meditations on nature, birds, berries, bees, and blood ring out over a clacking banjo throughout the album, dusting and devastating all those in its wake.
