13’ is the beautiful new offering from Ciaran Lavery lifted from his forthcoming album ‘Sweet decay’ that is set for release on the 13th April. Speaking about the new single, Ciaran said: “’13’ deals with my own fear, borne from an inability to handle long lasting love without contributing to its destruction. I cannot say it any plainer than that really. This song makes me feel uncomfortable. But I want to be as honest a songwriter as I can be; I don’t have any other choice but to face these things head on.”

The honesty shines through on ‘13’ and leaves you feeling the emotional tug Ciaran Lavery pours into his music. As a song writer some of your best work can be your most honest, but it can also be your most painful work too.

Ciaran explains…

“This is as honest as I can be as a songwriter without tearing my heart out of my chest and putting it on display. It’s basically about me being a terrible person; the whole thing. I can’t be any more frank about this…”
