ollowing the critical success of ‘Stones’, Dublin singer-songwriter Luke Clerkin released his new single on 5th June. ‘Nocturnal’ will be the second release from Luke’s upcoming project ‘What Little Time We Have’, with this release seeing him tread into a more full-band sound.
The songs on ‘What Little Time We Have’ were produced by previous collaborator Gavin Doyle, as well as Jack Keenan, at Cabin Space Studios in Dublin. They were mastered by the internationally renowned, Pete Maher (Jack White, Damien Rice, U2), in London.
Talking about the release, Luke said, ‘’Like most of the songs from ‘What Little Time We Have’, ‘Nocturnal’ is quite a personal song. It’s about me reflecting on a past relationship, from the first night of meeting the person – the nerves and anxiety that can occur – to it becoming something that turned into an ‘almost love’.
“Then it moves on to looking back on the relationship a few months after it ending, and wondering if it should have finished when it did. The lyric ‘Is it my blame, things always end the same’, is me questioning this, and also looking back on other relationships in comparison.”
Luke Clerkin has been playing and releasing music for the last five years, gaining international airplay and support, whilst also topping the Irish Singer Songwriter Charts on multiple occasions.
He is also known for playing over 250 gigs in 2015 as a way of honing his craft. Since then he has headlined famous Dublin venues such as Whelan’s, The Workman’s Club, and The Button Factory. His music has brought him all over the world, with multiple tours of Germany, as well as festival slots in America, The UK, and Ireland.
