Irish superstar DERMOT KENNEDY announces his long-awaited second album, titled ‘SONDER’, out September 23rd via Island Records / Interscope - pre-order now. Alongside the announcement of ‘Sonder’ comes the brand new track and accompanying video for ‘DREAMER'.
The announcement of ‘Sonder’ has been highly anticipated by fans and critics alike since the global success of his million-selling, number 1 debut album ‘Without Fear’. The title ‘Sonder’, the encapsulating phrase for “the realisation that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own”, instantly resonated with Dermot and transformed into the perfect way to tie up a feeling in a record.
Speaking on the thinking behind the title, Dermot explained “The meaning behind ‘Sonder’ has resonated with me so much for years. I exist in an industry where we’re encouraged to constantly only think about ourselves and I find that exhausting and uninspiring. I want to learn about you. Let us share all of our triumphs, all of our troubles. Let this music belong to all of us, to find our own stories and our own solace within it.”
