Eleanor McEvoy dropped into Boards.ie HQ to talk about her new album "I'd Rather Go Blonde", released September 17 in Ireland and featuring 11 tracks written by her.
Here she talks about the album and performs "Deliver Me (From What You Do)"
Never one to shy away from the big issues, this album sees McEvoy tackling themes such as alienation, hypocrisy, recent Irish history and romance. Her music has evolved and developed over her career and this album is a confident statement.
Her continuing absorption and influence by other forms of music continues to delight and confound any listener who may attempt to pigeon-hole her simply with reference to the winsome 'Only A Woman's Heart' which appeared on the massively popular album "A Woman's Heart" back in 1992. That was then, this is now! "I'd Rather Go Blonde" has been mixed by Ruadhri Cushnan' who did the breakthrough Mumford & Sons record of this year and has a wilfully contemporary relevance.
She will also undertake a headline tour of her own in October/November where she will be playing tracks from throughout her career but also of course from "I'd Rather Go Blonde".

1. Look Like Me
2. Just for the Tourists
3. I'd Rather Go Blonde
