Fionn Regan will release his first album in five years this April 14th. The Meetings of the Waters arrives after Regan’s song was recently sampled on Bon Iver’s 22 A Million album, which resulted in the pair playing together at Berlin’s Michelberger Hotel live rehearsal shows that Vernon was involved with.

‘The Meetings of the Waters’, the meditative title and opening track has also been revealed today through a video directed by Dubliner Yousef Eldin and starring actor Cillian Murphy. The clip concerns a somewhat paranoid solitary car journey.

To precede its release, Fionn will headline London’s Union Chapel on the 7th April. Tickets go on sale from 10:00am Friday 3rd April via his site

The album co-produced by Fionn, Philip Tennant, and Dave Granshaw at Chale Abbey Studios on the Isle of Wight. It was mixed by Tom Elmhirst at Electric Lady Studios in New York, and by Tchad Blake at Mongrel Studios in Wales It features eleven tracks. It’ll be released on Fionn’s own label imprint – 常に愛 TSUNENI AI / ABBEY RECORDS, which translates to ‘Always Love’ in Japanese.

The Irish Museum Of Modern Art’s Summer Party on Saturday July 16 is back this year and it looks to be a big one.

Curated by actor Cillian Murphy, it will feature:

German pianist/ composer Hauschka.
The Gloaming composer and fiddler Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh
David Kitt’s electronic project New Jackson (DJ Set)
experimental madzers Meltybrains?

The music will take place in the Great Hall, the Baroque chapel and the outdoor lawn of IMMA.

More activity including “live interventions” by performance and film curator Anna Gritz of the Schinkel Pavillon Berlin are planned.

If you’re wondering why Cillian Murphy is curating, he has form in music, through his directing work for Money, he has featured on Orbital Paul Hartnoll’s music, starred in a music video for Feist and he was formerly in a band. More background for ya.

Tickets go on sale on Friday 20th May at 10am, priced €18 and are available through IMMA.
