The track holds a certain significance for the Galway man. "I wrote this as an affirmation to myself, to not lose sight of a long held artistic ambition," he says.

"In the process it also became an exploration into what motivated me to follow the path of the artist in life. But it took a few other twists and turns I wasn’t expecting too."

Speaking about the video, he says, "It was great to work with Toby Mortimer, who created a beautiful animated film to accompany the song, encompassing some elements common to both of our journeys."

Arrivals arrives this February

Arrivals, which is out this February, is O’Rourke’s first new material in two years and was produced by Weller at Black Barn Studio. Weller, a fan of Declan’s song-writing for some years and who has said that O’Rourke’s track Galileo is the song he wished he’d written, also adds his multi-instrumental abilities to the recordings, including a beautiful piano accompaniment to the closing track.

O’Rourke’s last album Chronicles of The Great Irish Famine, documented rare first-hand accounts from that devastating period of Irish history and won numerous awards.
