Andrea Corr releases her brand new album 'Lifelines' on Monday May 30th 2011, with the first single from it, 'Tinseltown In The Rain' released on the same day.
Andrea's first release in over four years, 'Lifelines' is a real singers album - a deeply personal, warm and intimate exploration of her inspirations as an artist - and features a diverse, and sometimes surprising, collection of songs all built around Andrea's sublime and evocative voice.
Produced by John Reynolds and featuring co-production on several tracks by Brian Eno, 'Lifelines' is a personally curated collection of songs that have resonated throughout Andrea's life and includes stunning versions of songs by a range of artists from Velvet Underground, Kirsty McColl and Harry Nilsson to Ron Sexsmith, Nick Drake and The Blue Nile.
Expansive yet intimate, grown-up yet powerfully vulnerable, the primary instrument on the album is the voice and 'Lifelines' see's Andrea at her most diverse, pushing the vocals and extending her range far beyond her previous recordings.
Over the last couple of years Andrea has been working as a theatre actress with critically acclaimed performances as Jane Eyre at The Gate in Dublin and in The Old Vic's production of Brian Friel's Dancing at Lughnasa. Yet, from the age of 15, Andrea's first and greatest artistic love has been music. For a decade and a half, she was part of the biggest family folk rock band in the world, The Corrs, reaching multi platinum status in several countries and selling over 60 million records worldwide.
