Cheers Darlin’

Mr. Damien Rice, the Irish acoustic folk extraordinaire, is finally about to deliver the new material we’ve been waiting so long to hear. 9 Crimes is the first single from his upcoming album 9. The single is officially out on 20th November, and the album is out beforehand on 6th November. This is the much anticipated follow up to his 2003 album O – the track listing looks like this…

1. 9 Crimes
2. The Animals Were Gone
3. Elephant
4. Rootless Tree
5. Dogs
6. Coconut Skins
7. Me, My Yoke And I
8. Grey Room
9. Accidental Babies
10. Sleep Don’t Weep

9 Crimes is a beautiful piano ballad, crammed with all the powerfully emotive goodness we’ve come to expect from Damien Rice, check it for yourself…

His 2003 album O was truly immense and I really cannot wait to hear 9. I’ve been calling James Blunt the “poor man’s Damien Rice” for a long time now, and I think Damien Rice is about to prove that once more. This talented gentleman has gone from European busker to acoustic folk superstar, and if by chance you’ve never heard of him or his music… you need your head checked. O was easily one of the albums of 2003, so if you don’t own it already, get it bought. Similarly the 2004 album B-Sides was also very good, and I’ll share a track from it now…

    the problem is with filelodge, they really aren’t meant for webhosting, they often time-out. there are plenty of free hosting options out there, many you can hotlink to:

    try http://pics.ww.com/v/rickdog/, a free gallery2 site, they’re “officially” a photo site, but I never have problems with hotlinking other files. can’t vouch for server feed though, i never streamed from there.

    I love the new Damien Rice song. Thanks for posting. I have been waiting what seems like forever for a new CD from him. I am so excited.

    I like James Blunt, but he’s no comparison to Damien Rice. “O” is such a masterpiece, and I know his new CD will be worth the wait.

    Re: Rickdog saying the File Lodge isn’t “meant for webhosting”. It says on their homepage:

    “What is a file host? A file host is a website that allows you to upload files to its servers, you are then provided with links for you to post on your favourite forums / webpages / blogs / auctions / in emails, anywhere you wish!

    Perfect for sharing photos/images, music, and video with friends and family.”

    I’m sure the file timed out because the server was inundated with requests for Damien’s new single.
