Legendary singer/song-writer, Christy Moorereturns with his new single, ‘Clock Winds Down’. The song is the first taster from his new studio album, Flying Into Mystery, which will be released worldwide on 19th November 2021.

Featuring powerful and timely lyrics by Jim Page, ‘Clock Winds Down’ tackles the effects of climate change and is arranged and performed in the inimitable style that only Christy Moore famously delivers:

‘..The ice caps melt, the Amazon burns, to the point of no return,
The grid goes down, screens go blank, we’ll be walking down the plank,
As the Clock Winds Down, see the children take to the streets, when they hear Greta Thunberg speak…’

Featuring twelve songs, Flying Into Mystery is a collection that Christy has brought to life through his distinctive writing and unique interpretation of other artists’ songs.

Speaking about his latest project, Christy said this. ‘It has been a very different album recording process this time around…. Since 1969 I have been involved in recording but never with a total absence of live performance.  Since March 2020 all my focus has been on this album.  Once more I’ve been privileged to receive some great songs which kept me well occupied.  I produced with Jim Higgins and David Meade engineered the project. There are songs from Ricky Lynch, Paul Doran, Mick Hanly, Wally Page, Tom Tuohy, Gary Moore, Jim Page and Bob Dylan.  These sit side by side with traditional songs and a couple of my own offerings …Thanks for listening….’  Christy Moore.

The album will be available on digital stores, CD & gatefold vinyl and is available to pre-order now.
