I fell in love with Fionn Regan’s debut album, The End of History, shortly after its release in 2006 and have been a fan of the Irish singer-songwriter ever since. His soft yet confident delivery and introspective lyrics are the sonic equivalent of a Robert Frost poem, and I was eager to get my hands on his latest full-length album, 100 Acres Of Sycamore, when it was released digitally yesterday.

I could tell you my initial thoughts, but who better to give listeners an idea of what to expect from the new album than Regan himself? “My previous record, The Shadow Of An Empire, was me looking out of a window at the world,” he says. “With this one, it’s a clear look in. There’s a central, epic love story, that spans time – it’s the story of a couple dancing between the gutter and the chandelier.” For a more literal idea of what to expect, you can download the title track for free here.
