Portarlington-based The Hearty Boys have just released a track from their forthcoming album.
The song Just You, recorded at the Golden Egg studio is sung by Ronan O’Gorman with backing vocal by Charlotte Kelly.
The album, as yet untitled, is one of 11 love songs with various local artists recorded over the last number of years and is due out in mid August.
As Fran explains, “We were initially going with a four-track EP and when working on that we came upon lots of unrecorded songs and albums that were put down in different studios over the years.
“So we just pulled all the love songs together and ended up with 11 love songs that are all really different musically and at the moment we’re on the last track, a song called The Light which is sort of cosmic or surreal – it was really funning working on it.”
