Fionn Regan Announces New Album For January

The Bunkhouse Vol. I: Anchor Black Tattoo’ was recorded in the singer’s own studio.

Fionn Regan has announced details of a brand new album.

The rather fiddly-titled ‘The Bunkhouse Vol. I: Anchor Black Tattoo’ will be released on 28th January. It was self-recorded by the singer-songwriter in his Bunkhouse studio on a 4-track with a single microphone.

The record is Regan’s fourth, and follows just over a year after previous effort ‘100 Acres of Sycamore’.

Of the album, Regan says: “I made the record here by myself with a 4-track and one microphone. I did quite a bit of touring on my own earlier this year supporting Feist and although the rooms were big, I felt very much at home on the stage and after that I had a strong instinct to get right down to the brass tacks, back to the essense of what is it that I do as a songwriter, so that’s what I’ve done. You can call it folk but I feel in a lot of ways it’s like an Irish punk album, in that it’s pure, it’s stripped down, and it was made with just what I have at my disposal. Recording in this way also allowed me to work very quickly, I was documenting as I was writing, so these songs feel very fresh to me, straight out of the ground, which is a really great feeling.”
