Declan O’Rourke ‘In Full Colour’
Brand New Album & New Tour dates for 2017
Features some of Declan’s most treasured songs re-imagined
‘In Full Colour’ is the new full length record from Declan O’Rourke. Accompanied by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, the album features re-worked and reimagined material from over a decade’s worth of music across Declan’s career, along with some brand new tracks including the acclaimed ‘Children Of 16’.

Since 2012 O’Rourke has played five sold out concert hall sized venues around Ireland with these works, accompanied by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra. The audience reaction was so overwhelmingly positive it was decided to take the material, and the Orchestra into the studio so everyone could enjoy new versions of fan favourites ‘Galileo’ and ‘Lightning Bird Wind and River Man’ (full tracklisting below). Declan O'Rourke ‘In Full Colour’, is the result.

‘Children Of ‘16’ - the first single to be taken from the album was written for the 40 children who lost their lives during the Easter rising of 1916, and who were buried in an unmarked grave at Glasnevin cemetery.

Written for a ceremony to remember them, Children Of 16 is at once a moving tribute to those innocents, and a proud reflection on 1916 for all who call themselves Irish today. As the song points out, we ourselves, are in essence the Children of 16.

Declan O’Rourke is a critically acclaimed singer/ songwriter from Dublin, Ireland. Jon Pareles of The New York Times said his calling was as a balladeer who "proffered solace in the face of inevitable sorrow." Paul Weller has said of O’Rourke’s song ‘Galileo’ that it’s possibly the greatest song written in the last thirty years.

Declan plays to sold-out crowds here in Ireland and regularly tours in Europe, America and Australia. A consummate and versatile performer, his songs mesmerize, whether performed solo, with a band, a string quartet, or full concert orchestra.
