Windmill Lane Recording Studios is located in Ringsend

Speaking about the vinyl CEO of Windmill Lane Studios, Naomi Moore said: "When we took over Windmill Lane Recording Studios in 2009, we not only acquired a business, but we also inherited the most iconic facility of music creation in Ireland.

"We were determined to nurture and celebrate its history, its outstanding creative output, and its influence on the world stage.

"As we continue to work with leading and developing acts, we aim to celebrate and commit to vinyl, the talent that enters our famous green doors for another 40 years.

"Put simply, this album will bring you back, pick you up and reaffirm your love for great tunes. We are so proud, delighted, and privileged to share it with you."

Nick Younger of Universal Music Ireland said: "When Naomi and Aidan approached us with this idea, we jumped at the chance to partner with them.

The album is out on October 29, priced €33.00

Windmill Lane in a previous life

Windmill Lane was originally opened in 1978 by recording engineer Brian Masterson on Dublin's quays, before relocating to its current location on Ringsend Road.

The studios have been most associated with U2 and was formerly a place of pilgrimage for the band's fans, who created the famous U2 graffiti wall outside the original building.

It has also played host to Kate Bush, Depeche Mode, Glen Hansard, Hozier, Lady Gaga, Norah Jones, Metallica, New Order, Sinead O’Connor, Ed Sheeran, Snow Patrol, The Spice Girls, The Rolling Stones, and Rod Stewart.
