Damien Rice live at the Tempodrom in Berlin in March 2023
Earlier this month, he was finally back again: Irish songwriter, singer, guitarist and million-seller Damien Rice released his song "Astronaut" for the first time. Fittingly, not as a glossy release with an advertising campaign and TikTok challenge, but as the lead single for a charity sampler. The Busk Record" features unique recordings by artists such as Bono, Glen Hansard, Lisa O'Neill and Damien Rice. All proceeds go to the Irish homeless charity. Rice needs on "Astronaut" as always hardly more than his voice, his guitar and a discreet instrumentation. Tender and poignant, he sings, "I can be your brother / Help you to hide / I can blow your cover / Pull the thorns from your side."
Damien Rice's music has always had something comforting about it, even as he plumbs the depths of togetherness and heartbreak many times. Songs like "The Blower's Daughter," "9 Crimes," "Cannonball" and "I Don't Want To Change You" are high songwriting art that hits straight to the heart with seemingly simple means. The magic of his songs has always unfolded most vividly when Damien Rice is on stage alone or with a band. His shows are almost always sold out and his fans come back again and again. Also or just because he takes the time he needs to compose new music.
Therefore we are very happy that Damien Rice will go on a European tour in March and will also play a show in Germany. Whether there will be more new songs or even a new album, only the time will tell. Either way, in March 2023, old and new fans will stagger blissfully out of the Tempodrom.
