Everything is falling into place for Cian Ducrot ahead of the August 4th release of his debut album ‘Victory’. The rising Irish singer-songwriter has already exceeded half a billion streams to date, led by the UK Top 20 hits ‘All For You’ (certified Gold) and ‘I’ll Be Waiting’ (Silver), while his ability to connect with fans with special in-person moments that makes for memorable content has attracted 4.5 million followers at TikTok. His status is similarly taking off in the live arena, with phenomenal sales ahead of this autumn’s UK and Ireland headline tour, his biggest London show to date at the Eventim Apollo, plus North American live highlights which include a sold-out Irving Plaza in New York and an upscaled venue in Toronto.

Now Cian’s next step comes as he shares the brand new single ‘Everyone Who Falls In Love (Has Someone Else They’re Thinking Of)’. The melancholy piano that introduces the song indicates that the song is heading in one direction, but those expectations are spun around as Cian sings the ear-catching lyric, “She still thinks of him when she touches my skin.” Like many of Cian’s songs to date, ‘Everyone Who Falls In Love’ shows that for all the joys that come with it, romance can be messy, contradictory and confusing. That mood is emphasised by the production, which reflects the turmoil of the lyrics with dashes of corrosive beats and darker synth textures. Listen  HERE.

Cian says, “‘Everyone Who Falls In Love’ is based on the idea that as you get older and enter relationships, both parties usually have a lot of baggage from past relationships that still affects them and that they still think about on a daily basis. Whether it be love or pain or trauma or just simple memories, the truth is it takes time to escape those things that affected us so deeply and only time will help them pass. Everyone who falls in love has someone else they’re thinking of.”

‘Victory’ compiles this new song with all of the biggest and best moments of Cian’s career to date (‘I’ll Be Waiting’, ‘Heaven’, ‘All For You’ and ‘Part Of Me’) as well as another seven future fan favourites. The album is available to pre-order / pre-save HERE. A range of formats, bundles and merch designs includes a spatter-coloured vinyl as well as two CDs with a bonus disc: one featuring string arrangements of select songs, the other featuring performances from Cian’s choir.

Having just played three huge outdoor shows with Dermot Kennedy, Cian Ducrot’s international touring in support of ‘Victory’ will take him North America, Europe, the UK and back home to Ireland. He will also play some intimate album launch shows and will be hosting signing sessions at select hmv stores. His UK and Ireland shows are below, please see HERE for a list of all international dates and ticket information.
