Mick Flannery @ The Hawk's Well
Mick Flannery is back on the road performing new material from his new album
I Own You which features some of Mick’s finest work to date and on Friday the 24th of March, he visits the Hawk’s Well Theatre. Following the release of his number one album
By The Rule in 2014, Mick took a short break and began writing
again in 2015. Basing himself between the counties of Cork and Clare, he
was moved and motivated by current events around the world,
specifically one tragic event in April 2015 that inspired
the title track.
Speaking very directly about the single, Mick states; "The song
I Own You is based on the idea of the ‘poor man’ breaking into
the ‘rich man's’ house. It was inspired by wealth inequality in
capitalist societies. It was also informed by the Baltimore riots, after
the killing of Freddie Gray by police. I hoped the
song would portray the anger felt by disenfranchised, powerless people.
The video is intended to send the message that the greed of the
super-rich must at some stage be reckoned with".
This album is a step away from previous releases,
something Mick differentiates between his own albums. ‘50% of this album
is more socially aware, containing social commentary stuff, and is
ultimately less self-involved than my previous
releases. It may also sound slightly different; I was listening to a
lot of Kendrick Lamar, and for a long time it was just Christian
[producer] and I in the studio – him on drums and me warbling – so the
beat became more important than any guitar or piano
parts, more hip-hop based, the reason it sounds a little bit more
modern’. I Own You was released in October 2016 on CD and vinyl.
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear the man himself in top form and live
