John Spillane – We Come In The Wind

Sail away with me.

Cork’s finest, John Spillane (top), is back with a fine new single from his new album 100 Snow White Horses, due on April 2.

The atmospheric ballad features ethereal backing vocals from Pauline Scanlon and was produced by John Reynolds.

The press blurb says:

“We Come In The Wind’ is based on the 3 Imramma or Wonder Voyages of Irish literature: The Voyage of Bran; The Voyage of Maeldun; and The Voyage of St. Brendan. It’s a fairytale dream journey inspired by some of John’s favourite old Irish stories.”

Nick says: A mighty wind.

    Nice one Nick.

    It’s fair to say that John Spillane has been one of the most beautiful balladeers and modern folk heroes in Ireland since the start of the century.
    Harmonies from Pauline Scanlin are always spellbinding.

    The album will defiantly give solace when it’s released in April.
    Just in time for the dance of the cherry tree.

    There must be something about the Cork air -John Spillane and Jimmy McCarthy are two of the greatest wordsmiths of songs.

    Good call, looking forward to the new album, I have been to more John Spillane gigs than any other artist, very talented and a gentleman to boot. When this Covid poop show is over I look forward to hearing him live again.
