The long-awaited sophomore album from Roisin O, Courageous, will be released Friday
29th April 2022. A musical autobiography charting the last few years of the singersongwriter's life - dealing with loss, heartache, breakups, letting go, and ultimately
finding hope - this is an album that chronicles never before heard chapters from the life
of one of Ireland's most distinctive and talented female voices.
Having previously immersed herself in other successful collaborations; as the lead
singer of the band Thanks Brother; and as part of Irish Women in Harmony (who
achieved an Irish number 1 with Dreams in 2020); this album sees Roisin's triumphant
return as a powerful and influential solo artist. Her recent signing to US Record Label
Blix Street is an indication of how, yet again, she seems destined to make a mark as a
performer in her own right.
Combining Roisin's incredible vocals with her innate skill for composing indelible
lyrics, this is an album that will allow the listener to accompany her on a journey of
heartbreak and healing but, in true Roisin style, there are plenty of tracks that will also
make you want to turn up the volume and dance!
Following the success of her 2021 singles Heart + Bones, Still Gold, and her top 20 hit
2023, her most recent single Stolen soared straight to No.1 on iTunes, having been
co-written with international hitmaker singer-songwriter Gavin James.
The album also includes the new single Better Now and the title track Courageous,
which were produced by Danny O'Reilly of The Coronas and Cormac Butler (James
Vincent McMorrow/ Gavin James). According to Róisín, the title relates to the
circumstances of the album's creation as a whole. Deciding to return to my solo career
was a huge step for me and took courage I didn't know I had.
Speaking about Courageous Róisín writes: This record has been about eight years
in the making. Since my debut album I've made a lot of different career moves but in
2021 I finally decided to come back to my solo career as Róisín O. After writing the first
single Heart + Bones in 2020, the songs just poured out of me and the time finally
felt right to release my second album. Releasing a second album has always been a
daunting thought, something I kept putting at arm's length. The pandemic affected so
many people in different ways and for me, it really gave me the time to take stock and
reassess why I was doing this in the first place. I love performing, I love writing songs
and I love seeing people connect with them or move them in some way.

Courageous is the last song I wrote for the record. When it came to picking a title for
the album as a whole this track stood out instantly; every song on it has an underlying
theme of bravery and it has taken a lot of courage to finally get to this point in my
career. I took the long road but I'm so proud to be releasing my sophomore album
