Aoife O’Donovan’s “Red & White & Blue & Gold” was featured among President Barack Obama’s picks for his nighttime summer Spotify playlist. The track comes from her 2013 release Fossils.
Time Magazine interviewed Aoife following the playlist’s launch:
“It just seemed so strange and far-fetched,” says O’Donovan, who took a break from her beer at an Irish pub to talk to TIME. She thought it was a joke until opening up the playlist and seeing her song, “Red & White & Blue & Gold,” sandwiched between Al Green and Lauryn Hill.
