Endless Affair is due 17th March 2023. To celebrate, Ailbhe has announced two shows at Whelans, Dublin on 5th + 6th May, tickets are on sale now.
2022 has already seen Ailbhe Reddy make her debut at The Great Escape, Visions Festival and Latitude Festival, winning great swathes of new fans along the way. Today, new single ‘Shitshow’ – a humbling account of a party’s aftermath set to fuzzed-up, down-trodden guitars - officially heralds the announcement of her new album.
Ailbhe Reddy comments on the single: “Shitshow came from a lyric I played with for a few months which was "my god, look at the state of me, this is so embarrassing, won't you take me home?" It's kind of addressing another person and kind of addressing myself from the perspective of the morning after. I had those lyrics for a while and while working with Tommy McLaughlin on the record he jokingly said we should call the album Shitshow and I vowed to work that word into a lyric so it perfectly fit into this song. It's about looking back on a night out with regret while also addressing and apologising to an ex-partner about my antics. The first verse is to myself and the second verse is to someone else. It's kind of a tongue in cheek examination of a bad hangover.”
