Hermitage Green Launches New Single ‘Younger Days’
Limerick indie band Hermitage Green, based in Ireland and the UK who have been selling out tours across Australia, Canada, The United States, The Middle East, Ireland and Europe, released their new single “Younger Days” off their upcoming album featuring Gregory David Roberts and Cillian King on Friday November 3rd.
Hermitage Green have made a large impact in a short period of time. After having released their first full length album Save Your Soul and watching it climb the charts, they followed it up with a powerhouse EP, Gold & Rust produced by Grammy Award winning producer Matt Lawrence (Amy Winehouse, Adele, Mumford & Sons). That was followed by their last release Hi Generation produced by Irelands own Phil Magee.
With their latest single “Younger Days” just released on Friday, November 3rd, Hermitage Green lead singer Daniel Murphy has described the inspiration and story behind the single as a song reflecting on times gone by, with consideration for some of the things we have lost in modern society. The song also includes a spoken word piece from Australian author, Gregory David Roberts best known for his critically acclaimed novel Shantaram.
Daniel Murphy explained that “today we are being faced with a burgeoning mental health crisis, at a time when we are supposedly ‘more connected’ than ever before. ‘Younger Days’ tackles some subject matter that we have never discussed as a band before, and something we all feel strongly about. We invited Gregory David Roberts to write a spoken word piece for the song. Greg is a gifted writer and artist, who has experienced as wide a spectrum of highs and lows in this life as anyone. It was a great honour to have him collaborate with us, and to articulate the spirit of the song which such meaning.”
Gregory David Roberts is an Australian artist, composer, songwriter, and author with an extraordinarily fascinating life story and with whom Hermitage Green have been privileged to work with on this track. Roberts’ whose life affirming messages have resonated with people across the world said “My spiritual Teacher once said that the happy human being is one who is surrounded by Holy Souls. Dan Murphy is one of those Holy Souls, and it has been a happy honour to collaborate with him and Hermitage Green, to provide my little moment on their beautiful song, Younger Days. I feel a precious, wistful hope when I listen to Dan’s voice on this song, and it fills me with the determination to go on, no matter what, and never give up on love and life. In gratitude, and with Blessings to the Band and all the Holy Souls who hear their deeply empathetic music art.”
