This time last year, Adrian Crowley released his fourth album, “Lost Distance Swimmer”. The album received rave reviews, got shortlisted for the Choice Music Prize and gave him a mighty push. Sure, we even pressganged him into penning a few on-the-road diaries for this blog.

To mark the album’s anniversary, Adrian is giving “Long Distance Swimmer” away for free for one week via On The Record – you can download the album here.

At present, Adrian is finishing work on album number five which will be released on April 24 next on Tin Angel. To coincide with the giveaway, we also have a brand new song, “The Wishing Seat”, from that as yet untitled album – the video is below. Enjoy!

If you want to see Adrian live, he will be supporting Cathy Davey this month at Dolan’s, Limerick (17); Electric Avenue, Waterford (18); Cyprus Avenue, Cork (21); Tripod, Dublin (22) and Roisin Dubh, Galway (27). In January, he will be supporting James Yorkston at dates in Crawdaddy, Dublin (22), Speakeasy, Belfast (23); Roisin Dubh, Galway (24) and Cyprus Avenue, Cork (25).

And finally, here’s the video for new song “The Wishing Seat
