180g black vinyl-Contains download

To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of its original release we are pleased to announce today the vinyl reissue of 100 Acres Of Sycamore, the acclaimed third album from Fionn Regan, out 26th November. The album, which for the first time will be available on 180g vinyl, is now available to pre-order.

Amongst the album's many highlights the LP is perhaps best known for the track Dogwood Blossom which featured on the soundtrack to the hit television adaption of Sally Rooney's “Normal People.” The track also featured memorably during the closing sequence of the final episode of Shane Meadows' “This Is England 88”.

Regan began writing 100 Acres of Sycamore whilst living on the island of Majorca. Regarding the albums composition Regan stated: “I think if you could bottle a bit of the atmosphere and put it into the record, its there. In saying that, I think its spliced with walking in the woods in Ireland.”

The album was recorded to tape using analogue methods, with Regan noting, “I just love the sound of it, I love the process. I love the idea that theres a master tape. Its a very potent thing.” Regan and co-producer Sean Read recorded using the same console that The White Stripes used to record their fourth studio album, “Elephant”.

Regarding the stylistic differences between 100 Acres of Sycamore and his previous album, The Shadow Of An Empire, Regan noted, “The last album was kind of like a chrysalis and this is the butterfly. I think sometimes that everyone has to remember that you dont get this without that. This album wouldnt have happened without the last record. The second one wouldnt have happened without the first one. I think sometimes after the first record there might have been a feeling that, because I was on to a good thing, to just repeat it but I wasnt interested in that. Its very important for me to do what feels right at the time.” Regan also noted, "My previous record, The Shadow Of An Empire was me looking out of a window at the world. With this one, it's a clear look in.”

Fionn Regan is a unique poetic voice in music and has been consistently critically acclaimed. Over the course of six sublime albums Regan has been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize as well as the Choice, Meteor and Shortlist awards. His song “Abacus” was sampled by Bon Iver on his GRAMMY® Nominated album, 22, A million. Regan was recently made an ‘Honorary Member' of the Trinity College Dublin Literary Society, its chairman saying, “In his music, Mr. Regan has done more than many artists to erode the boundaries between music and literature, with his lyrics always possessing the most beautiful poetry." regan also appeared beside celebrated actor Cillian Murphy in the music video for his song “The Meetings of the Waters” which has now had over 50 million streams worldwide.
