Christy Moore’s new studio album Lily will be released worldwide on 20 May 2016.

Featuring ten songs, the Declan Sinnott produced album is the first new music from Christy since ‘Where I Come From’ in 2013.  The title track tells us of Christy’s early memories of County Kildare, and the album takes us on a journey across the water and back home with songs from Christy, Peter Gabriel and local heroes; John Spillane and Declan O’Rourke.  Christy says, “This collection has been a joy to record. We worked at different locations over the past two years and now it’s time to let it off upon the air.”
