About this deal

The track is not only an announcement of the secrets she is going to unfold on the rest of the record, but also a proper introduction of the Irish folk music that is incorporated with her pop sound. This deals with a first kiss that turns into a deeply sour affair; due the boy involved giving a rather nasty depiction of events to everyone at her school, and the isolation and shame that came with that. There is a melting pot of folk, pop and traditional Irish music shaping the album’s sonic blueprint with Irish scene legends such as Davy Spillane, Eoin Dillan, Brian Fleming and Peter Browne featuring alongside production from Jonathan Quarmby (Lewis Capaldi, Tom Walker). To mark the occasion, we spoke with the man behind the masters of Matthew Herbert, Eliza Rose and Crass about his most memorable .

Janet brought the project to Abbey Road mastering engineer Christian Wright, who has worked on a vast majority of her catalogue: “My new album has been a labour of love! Kicking off with the excellent ‘Confessional’ and ending with ‘Better Now’, there’s a sense of a narrative with a beginning, middle and end, covering the darkest days, the learning, and – ultimately – emergence from it all. After receiving a Masters in Music Technology from the CIT Cork School of Music, she went on to operate as a producer under the name Blakkheart.This song she wrote about learning how to live with an experience with sexual assault is equally heartbreaking and empowering, as she ends the song saying she is ‘ready to speak’. Devlin fully lets the power of music do its thing with a song that could inspire and help people who went through a similar thing.

The chorus is infectious and should become a big singalong moment when Devlin can finally go out and tour with this record.It disappeared the moment I sang ‘Your Song'” particularly cleverly references her X Factor audition (in which she song thát song by Elton John). Janet Devlin Opens up on Her Upcoming Album, "Confessional": "I Just Wanted to Finally Disclose the Real Version of Myself to Everyone" ". Big Wide World’ is perhaps her most upbeat earworm track to date, but yet it still works amongst all the more contemplative offerings. In The Irish Times Tony Clayton-Lea said that sometimes the music did not match the lyrical themes of independence and survival, with "the assertiveness of one undermined by the ineffectiveness of the other", but that overall "Devlin delivers a stinging riposte to the music business as an entity and to some people in particular".
