Daniel O'Donnell is set to make an appearance in an upcoming short movie set at Halloween and he is also set to release a new studio album of original material for Christmas.

In a career first, the Donegal singer stars in Night of The Daniels, a YouTube video which will be unveiled on 28 October for Halloween and sees him save Dungloe when it comes under attack.

Daniel (60) once again teamed up with the makers of his viral Down At The Lah De Dah video Shaun Duggan and Ciaran McCann of Re-Act Productions for the new short movie.

Speaking to the Donegal News earlier this year, co-director McCann said that the video will be a "huge steppingstone" for Re-Act Productions and that working with the singer is a "massive opportunity".

Daniel will release his new album, I Wish You Well, on 4 November, a mix of up-tempo songs and ballads, which includes two 'Buble-esque’ tunes - Under A Spell of Loving You, written by Fergal Flaherty and Always There written for Daniel by Brendan Graham and Rolf Loevland who wrote You Raise Me Up.

Daniel is currently on an international tour, which see him perform dates in Canada and the USA this October, and November. He recently announced a Dublin Show for 27 August 2023 in Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.
