Exclusive: Sacré Cœur
New song and video
About this video
I began writing this song at the beginning of the tour in Paris. I was staying in a tiny apartment adjacent to Père Lachaise Cemetery. I felt inspired by the city and the people of Paris. In the aftermath of the November attacks I wanted to concentrate on people going about their everyday in our changed world.I sang it a little differently each night of the tour. When I was in Gent, Belgium, my friend Daithi Rua, invited me to record with him at the Rua room. It seemed like a good opportunity to capture this song in its early stages. This is one take recorded live in his studio. I’m looking forward to hearing this song grow and see what other songs come up around it.
Recored, mixed and filmed by Daithi Rua, at The Rua Room on February 10, 2016.Written and performed by Niall Connolly ( IMRO).
