Global phenomenon DERMOT KENNEDY today releases his brand new single ‘BETTER DAYS’, his first new solo music since smash hit single ‘Giants’. The single and video are out now on Island Records via all DSPs – https://DermotKennedy.lnk.to/BetterDays

‘Better Days’ takes a sentiment we’ve all hoped for so much over the past 18 months, with Dermot vocalising the thoughts of people the world over. The track comes with the kind of optimism and hope Dermot has always been so forthcoming with throughout his career, providing support and solace to so many. Produced by Dan Nigro (Olivia Rodrigo ‘Driver’s Licence’), ‘Better Days’ also features a Gaelic backing choir, who whilst chanting the words “courage and calm” in their native tongue build into a chorus that’s guaranteed to be a live favourite on Dermot’s upcoming UK and US tours.

On describing the track, Dermot explained “This is a song about patience. It’s about believing in something brighter, and never losing sight of better days, no matter how hard things might get. In a time where so many people feel worried and exhausted, I would love for this song to remind even one person that things will improve. As an artist, I feel somewhat responsible to try to make people feel a little better, whether that’s making them think of someone they love, or just taking their mind off their problems for the length of a song. So this is my contribution to hopefully providing some people with a moment’s solace. Better days will come.”

Over the past 18 months, alongside writing the follow up to ‘Without Fear’, Dermot performed live with Meduza on The Ellen Show, performed a fantastic live show at Natural History Museum in London and recorded a fantastic pre-show performance for U2’s The Virtual Road series on St. Patrick’s Day. He was also awarded Man of the Match at Unicef’s annual Soccer Aid event.
