Imelda May will play an extra date at Bord Gais Energy Theatre on 31st May. Tickets for this additional date are on sale now!
Taking the biggest band line up she has ever toured, the shows promise to delight both old and new fans of Imelda’s music. Featuring members of her longtime band with some additional incredible musicians, the new line up brings the wonderful new material and old favourites to full colour whilst also showcasing Imelda’s unique ability to evoke the purest of emotion using her voice as her sole instrument.
At the end of last year Imelda released ‘Call Me’, the first single, and opening track, from her forthcoming album. Today Imelda released her next single ‘Black Tears’ from that album, ‘Life Love Flesh Blood’ produced by the legendary T Bone Burnett which is due for release on Friday 7th April. Imelda’s show stopping performance of ‘Black Tears’ on the Jools Holland Hootenany was the most-watched performance of the evening online.
While writing her new album, Imelda May had one rule. Above all else, she had to be honest. She describes it as her diary; her confessional.
The result is a record that is absolutely and distinctively her. But, this is not a rockabilly record. It defies easy categorization. If anything, it's a soul record. A beautiful, heartbreaking, uplifting, captivating record on which Imelda May bares her soul.
Imelda doesn't just sound different. She actually looks physically different. Somehow darker, stronger, more sensuously feminine and adult. “I always loved the Fifties rockabilly style but there was a point where I felt I was almost dressing up as Imelda May. It was as if I was getting into character for a gig. And I didn’t want to do that anymore. This is me.”
So meet the new Imelda May and prepare to be amazed…
"I’ve never met anyone quite like Imelda May. She is full of life. When I first happened onto her music, she was a punky Irish rocakbilly singer with a great band. I was intrigued by her deep feeling for and understanding of that American art form, much of which, of course, had originated in Ireland. When I ran across her several years later, she had gone through a change of lives and was writing about it with a wild intensity and singing about it in the most open hearted way.
I was inspired by her honesty and her generosity, and I continue to be intrigued." - T Bone Burnett
“I love the girl she used to be but I think I love even more the woman she’s become. Still mischievous and playful, still a siren but there’s an ache in her voice now that has me with a glass at my ear to the wall of her world where trouble has entered the room. There’s an erotic power here that’s not just feminine power. She makes truth telling an invitation to intimacy.” - Bono
