After a long eight year musical absence, Irish singer Damien Rice is finally back with a new album and a new single. The album is called My Favourite Faded Fantasy and is due out on November 10th. The single is ‘I Don’t Want to Change You‘.
The video for ‘I Don’t Want to Change You‘ was also released this week. Shot in Iceland, it shows Damien Rice standing at the end of a dock singing about trying to let go of love. And, yes, it’s beautiful.
My Favourite Faded Fantasy will be released on October 31st and critics are loving it so far, so it’s looking like another big hit for Damien. As he’s one of my favorite singer-songwriters of all time, all I can say is “Yay”.
Meanwhile, watch the video for ‘I Don’t Want to Change You’ below. It’s as heart-breaking as you’d expect coming from him.
