New Release: Villagers & Nico Muhly – Fortunate Child

Today, Villagers’ Conor O’Brien has shared his collaboration with acclaimed composer Nico Muhly

The beautiful, haunting track Fortunate Child was recorded in New York earlier this year for the show This Ain’t No Disco and the video features footage shot by Donal Dineen whilst they were in New York

Watch the video for Fortunate Child below…

Conor said about working with Muhly… Creating ‘Fortunate Child’ with Nico was a very intuitive process. The chord structure and frequencies of Nico’s initial soundscape really spoke to me and allowed me to go with the first draft of those string-of-consciousness lyrics. It’s gradually unpacking itself and I hope you enjoy

Additionally, O’Brien recently covered the Elvis classic The Wonder of You for the HBO series ‘Big Little Lies’. This track and his Nothing Arrived Spotify Session are both featured on the show’s soundtrack. Listen here

O’Brien is currently working on his fourth album, whilst Muhly is involved in the new Planetarium release, alongside Sufjan Stevens, Bryce Dessner and James McAlister
