Description

Brona McVittie - The Green Man

The Green Man/Eileen Aroon is the new single from Irish singer-songwriter Brona McVittie, a hint of what’s to come from her forthcoming sophomore album which follows her January 2018 debut We are the Wildlife.

Comes in a lovely gatefold card case complete with vinyl-style CD in cardboard sleeve. Artwork by Gladys Mulligan. Photography by Beki Corrigan.

The new single features Brona’s own songwriting (The Green Man) alongside a novel interpretation of traditional Irish ballad Eileen Aroon, showcasing a new collaboration with electronic duo Isan. Brona explains “both of these songs are inspired by the landscape. The Green Man literally grew out of the trees visible from my living room window. I could see his head of sycamore and his arms, branches of an ash tree. Eileen Aroon — composed by Carroll O’Daly around 1380 — espouses his love for Eleanor Kavanagh, daughter of the Leinster chieftain comparing her to a ‘flower of the hazel glade’”.

The Green Man: written, recorded and produced by Brona McVittie at Corkbot Castle Studios in Rostrevor. Featuring Richard Curran (cellos), Anne Garner (flute), Myles Cochran (steel guitar) and Brona (vocals, harp, electronics). Co-produced and mastered by Myles Cochran in Mineur Studios, France.

Eileen Aroon/Eibhlín a Rúin (Darling Eileen): co-arranged by Brona McVittie and Isan (Robin Saville & Antony Ryan). Brona (harp, vocals), Isan (electronics), Myles Cochran (steel guitar). Co-produced and mastered by Myles Cochran in Mineur Studios, France.
