Talking about the new song, which is released on July 31, Furey said, "I wrote Blue Jewel in the Sky at the end of the 90's about the madness of man's inhumanity to man. When the opportunity arose to make a music video with the documentary filmmaker Dearbhla Glynn, I didn’t have to think twice.
"She is respected at her craft, working with an open heart, but not shying away from tough subjects. Dearbhla's footage from Palestine and Eastern Congo help to shine a light on the suffering we know is going on, so we can all think about making changes in our daily lives in order for change to happen."
Glynn, who specialises in making films about human rights and conflict, said, "I have a huge respect for Finbar Furey and his legacy. After listening to his song
Blue Jewel in the Sky I loved the lyrics, the sentiment behind the song and the idea of creating a music video together; one that would illustrate Finbar's concern for the environment, and the suffering in the world.
"It was great to film Finbar and Aine together down by the iconic Poolbeg lighthouse, and to try and capture a glimmer of their relationship and connection. They sing so beautifully together, and obviously have a wonderful friendship as well as being father and daughter."
