Aoife O’Donovan Shares New Single, Title Track to New Album ‘Age of Apathy’


New Album Age of Apathy Out January 21

Today, Aoife O’Donovan shares “Age Of Apathy,” the haunting title track from her first studio album in six years, out January 21. As her hypnotizing vocals wander across sparse but beautiful instrumentation, her lyrics recount memories of a distant New England summer when a relationship was transformed.

“Hold me like you held me on the day the towers fell,” she sings, searching for a greater lesson to pull from a small gesture in the shadow of tragedy. “When we stumbled over to the Christian Science Center pool / was it the end or the beginning?”

Produced by fellow GRAMMY® winner Joe HenryAge of Apathy finds Aoife O’Donovan in rare form. With melodies distinct and beautiful, delicate yet heart-wrenching, she carves out a joyful existence amid apocalyptic forecasts of the future. Age of Apathy was recorded through a unique residency with Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL, where Aoife worked onsite with GRAMMY® nominated engineer Darren Schneider. The result: a singular work that synthesizes Aoife’s peerless melodic construction and literary ambition into a statement on self-determination and the need to create your own purpose.
