Sorcha Richardson – ‘Map Of Manhattan’


The Irish artist releases a new single following her 2022 album Smiling Like An Idiot.

Singer-songwriter Sorcha Richardson has released a once-off single ‘Map Of Manhattan’ today on Faction Records.

“‘Map Of Manhattan’ began as a quick demo recorded in New York on a day off on tour in March. It came together over a few days in Belfast this summer and it was one of those songs that sort of appeared almost fully formed from the start. It’s about second guessing yourself, or someone else, in a relationship, and how the intensities and fears of that relationship play out over a single night. It’s sort of about bracing for heartbreak, not because you think it’s coming, but because it’s the thing you fear the most.”


It is released ahead of a headline show at the National Concert Hall on November 29th, Irish dates in Galway, Cork, Limerick and a US tour.
