Villagers Reveal New LP ‘Darling Arithmetic’

Villagers Reveal New LP 'Darling Arithmetic,' share video for the first single "Courage."

Darling Arithmetic is the third album from Villagers, set for release on April 14th in the United States. The follow-up to Conor O’Brien’s debut, Becoming a Jackal, and its successor, Awayland.

Darling Arithmetic was written, recorded, produced and mixed by O’Brien at home – the loft of a converted farmhouse that he shares in the coastal town of Malahide to the north of Dublin – revealing a single-minded artist at the peak of his already considerable songwriting powers. It encompasses the various shades of feeling – desire, obsession, lust, loneliness and confusion, and deeper into philosophical and existential territory, across a cast of lovers, friends, family and even strangers. Backing up his supple and emoting vocal and guitar is the subtlest palate of instrumentation – piano, Mellotron (which accounts for the album’s occasional horn and cello tones) and brushes.
