Villagers are pleased to share a brand new single ‘Summer’s Song’.
Featuring a chorus of six flugelhorns, ‘Summer’s Song’ was written and produced by Conor O’Brien and mixed by the legendary Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, Flaming Lips, MGMT).
In Conor’s words: “’Summer’s’ Song’ is the closest I’ll ever get to writing a pure pop song. I just had to roll with it and I’m glad I did

Conor continues, “It was really just an excuse to make the horns sound like sunbeams. Boy it’s fun to play live. I can’t quite believe we managed to get the magical touch of Dave Fridmann in on the mix”.
The video – animated by Joe May and illustrated by Patricio Bauzá – is equally drenched with memories of summers past and anticipation of those to come.
Fresh from supporting Mumford & Sons on their recent UK arena tour, Villagers will be playing shows throughout the summer including a sold-out gig at Dublin’s glorious Iveagh Gardens (his biggest ever headline – 4000 cap).
A European tour including Paradiso, Amsterdam and the Rolling Stone Weekenders in Germany have also been announced for November.
