Villagers make there way to BELFAST, Mandela Hall – TONIGHT (very ltd tkts available) for what is certain to be a tremendous show. Everything I Am Is Yours will be the next single released from Villagers’ acclaimed new album Darling Arithmetic, with an impact date of 29th June. The accompanying video was directed by Jamie Thraves (Radiohead, Sam Smith, Blur), watch it BELOW.
Echoing the song’s tender depth, the Everything I Am Is Yours video sees Conor O’Brien as the soundtracking leader of a lovelorn protagonist in search of solace with O’Brien himself becoming emotionally and physically connected to his every move.
Darling Arithmetic is the follow-up to Conor O’Brien’s debut, Becoming a Jackal, and its successor, Awayland – both hugely acclaimed and each nominated for The Mercury Music Prize. It’s a breathtakingly beautiful, intimate album entirely about love and relationships. For more information on Darling Arithmetic visit the album’s microsite HERE.
