About Mick Flannery

Mick Flannery announces the release of his highly anticipated fifth album ‘I Own You’, released on Universal Music Ireland on October 14th. Available to pre-order now

The album ‘I Own You’ features some of Mick’s finest material to date and is preceded by the first single, the title track ‘I Own You’, which is out now.

Following the release of his #1 album ‘By The Rule’ in 2014, Mick took a short break and began writing again in 2015.  Basing himself between the counties of Cork & Clare, Mick was moved & motivated by current events around the world, specifically one tragic event in April 2015 that inspired the title track.

Speaking very directly about the single, Mick states; ‘I Own You is about class inequality, more specifically the Baltimore riots.  I was writing around the same time, this kid Freddie Gray – they just broke his back, and the feelings and emotions around that just sort of bled into the song. I suppose the main bulk of song was to do with that. It’s probably always been this way but that Capitalism has exasperated the problem, that 1% own the vast majority of the wealth in the world, and that’s what the track is about – and the video echoes that’

This album is a step away from previous releases, something Mick differentiates between his own albums. ‘50% of this album is more socially aware, containing social commentary stuff, and is ultimately less self-involved than my previous releases. It may also sound slightly different; I was listening to a lot of Kendrick Lamar, and for a long time it was just Christian [producer] and I in the studio – him on drums and me warbling – so the beat became more important than any guitar or piano parts, more hip-hop based, the reason it sounds a little bit more modern’
