Irish singer-songwriter and producer Cian Ducrot has today released a re-imagined version of his latest single, ‘All For You’, with chart topping singer Ella Henderson via Polydor UK. The haunting track with heartfelt lyrics explores themes of love, lust and heartbreak in a powerful and melodic way. The addition of Ella’s delicately rich vocals brings an extra depth to the track, accentuating the raw emotion of the single. The original version of the tender ballad was previewed on this year’s Love Island and has been greeted with phenomenal success on TikTok, with more than 150K views in just twenty minutes.

After a blossoming friendship that came about after Ella asked Cian to support her on her upcoming UK tour that kicks off in October, the collaboration formed organically. Falling in love with the single, Ella was enlisted to add a new verse to the track, which the pair wrote together and recorded at Tileyard Studios, London. Speaking on the collaboration Cian says “Working with Ella is a dream! She’s not only an incredible artist and performer with the most beautiful voice but she is one of the kindest people I have ever met and worked with. To be going on tour and also having a collaboration together is really special to me and I am so grateful to Ella! Working on this new version was very surreal to me as I used to sing some of Ella’s songs back in Ireland when I would busk and gig on the weekends so I am still very much in a pinch me moment! We put a lot of love into this version to make it as authentic and real as possible and to maintain the original essence of the song! I’m so excited for everyone to hear it!”
Featuring artist Ella also adds, “For me Cian is the real deal. He is such a talented musician & authentic artist which is why I chose him to join me on my UK tour later this year in October! It’s been a lot of fun getting in the studio & rewriting our new version of ‘All For You’ together. My favourite thing about working with Cian is he is a storyteller which is so important to me when I write a song. We definitely connected the dots on this record to find a way of making the duet feel truthful, raw & honest. I love this song so much & I can’t wait for our fans to hear it!”
Fresh from landing her second Top 10 album (‘ ‘Everything I Didn’t Say’ ), as well as her sixth and seventh Top 10 singles consecutively (‘Crazy What Love Can Do’ and ’21 Reasons’), multi-platinum singer and songwriter Ella Henderson is hitting the road for her first headline tour in seven years this October. Spanning seven dates across autumn 2022, the tour will begin in Newcastle on Saturday, October 15, followed by shows in Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Oxford and Cardiff, and will conclude at London’s prestigious O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Tuesday, October 25. Cian will be supporting Ella – who boasts hits such as ‘Ghost’, ‘This Is Real’ and ‘Let’s Go Home Together’ – on all the UK dates. Tickets are available here.
Written and produced solely by Cian, All For You climbed into the Irish Singles Chart Top 10. The track combines a sombre, melodious piano with Cian’s soulful voice. In total simplicity as always, Cian says about the meaning behind the lyrics ‘To be honest I’ve never liked quoting for my songs, I think the best thing I can say is to listen to the song and decide what it means to you’.
