Aoife O’Donovan Releases New Single “Over The Finish Line” featuring Anaïs Mitchell; New Album ‘All My Friends’ Out March 22


Aoife O’Donovan and Anaïs Mitchell Offer An Impassioned Reminder to Vote In Crucial Election Year on New Single “Over The Finish Line”

O’Donovan’s Forthcoming Solo Album ‘All My Friends’ due out March 22nd 

Special Album Release Events Announced in Los Angeles (March 12), New York City (March 25), and Nashville (March 29)

March 7, 2024: “Once in a lifetime the power is ours, but we’d rather stare at our phones,” Grammy-Award winner Aoife O’Donovan sings on the first verse of her new single “Over The Finish Line.” Written by O’Donovan shortly after the murder of George Floyd, “Over The Finish Line” reflects on the state of the country and reminds listeners of our civic duty to vote and fight for positive change. The poignant, wistful track features Luke Reynolds on pedal steel and Tony and Grammy-Award winning musician Anaïs Mitchell, marking one of Mitchell’s first releases since the well-received opening of Hadestown in London’s West End. 

Listen to “Over The Finish Line (featuring Anaïs Mitchell)” here: 

Aoife O’Donovan’s new solo album All My Friends is inspired by the evolving landscape of women’s rights in America over the past century. O’Donovan infuses the experiences of the Suffragettes, who fought for the passage of the 19th Amendment and paved the way for their daughters, with her own experiences as a modern woman who wants to build a future for her own daughter. The project – O’Donovan’s first self-produced album – features a number of special guests including Anaïs Mitchell, Sierra Hull, Noam Pikelny, Alan Hampton, Griffin Goldsmith and more. Most of the songs on the album grew out of two commissions O’Donovan took on – from the Orlando Philharmonic where she now lives, and the FreshGrass Festival in her native Massachusetts. Following performances with both institutions, O’Donovan continued to explore the themes that would become All My Friends in full. Listen to the title track “All My Friends” HERE

About Aoife O’Donovan

Deemed “a vocalist of unerring instinct” by the New York Times, GRAMMY Award-winning artist Aoife O’Donovan operates in a thrilling musical world beyond genre. She has released three critically-acclaimed and boundary-blurring solo albums including her most recent record, 2022’s boldly orchestrated and literarily crafted Age Of Apathy,  which earned three GRAMMY nominations and was named “a moving self-portrait” by NPR. Folk Alliance International named the song “B61” their 2022 Song Of The Year. In addition to appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, CBS Saturday Morning, Kelly Clarkson and PBS Newshour, Pitchfork said O’Donovan “taps into the propulsion of prime Joni Mitchell.” Following the release of Age of Apathy, O’Donovan also recorded and toured behind a full album reinterpretation of Bruce Springsteen’s landmark Nebraska album, with performances at Newport Folk Festival, Tønder Festival, and more.

A savvy and generous collaborator, Aoife is one third of the group I’m With Her with bandmates Sara Watkins and Sarah Jarosz. The trio’s debut album See You Around was hailed as “willfully open-hearted” by NPR Music. I’m With Her earned an Americana Music Association Award in 2019 for Duo/Group of the Year, and a Grammy-award in 2020 for Best American Roots Song.

O’Donovan spent the preceding decade as co-founder and front woman of the string band, Crooked Still and is the featured vocalist on The Goat Rodeo Sessions — the group with Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer, and Chris Thile. She has appeared as a featured vocalist with over a dozen symphonies including the National Symphony Orchestra, written for Alison Krauss and spent a decade as a regular contributor to the radio variety shows “Live From Here” and “A Prairie Home Companion.”
