Declan O’Donovan Announces Release Of New Album “Broken Sky” + Premieres New Video

Yukon-based singer/songwriter Declan O’Donovan is excited to announce the June 2nd release of his new album Broken Sky.

O’Donovan is touring in support of the album, starting with a string of dates overseas that kicked off with a show in Berlin, and has Western Canadian dates coming up in June. See below for full tour details


Broken Sky is the follow-up to Declan O’Donovan’s self-titled debut album, released in 2012. The sophomore release was recorded with Juno Award-winning producer Jean Massicotte (Patrick Watson, Adam Cohen, Lhasa) at Studio Masterkut in Montreal and features members of Patrick Watson including: Robbie Kuster, Mishka Stein, and Joe Grass; and Brad Barr from The Barr BrothersAll music was written while Declan was living between Whitehorse, Toronto, and Montreal from 2014 to 2016.

“Jean gave my songs a landscape to live in and explore,” says O’Donovan. “He brought with him a sound and an approach that gave every note warmth and direction, and he gracefully coaxed out incredible performances from everyone involved, making the songs simultaneously grounded and unrestrained.”

With a European and UK tour dates underway and Canadian dates coming up right after, it’s safe to say that O’Donovan will be spending much of 2017 on the road. Following the dates in Western Canada, the next stop will be Japan in late July which will include a performance at the Fuji Rock Festival with more Canadian dates coming up in the fall. It’s a busy year of touring and that suits O’Donovan just fine: “I don’t really have a home, and with the exception of a piano, most of my belongings fit into a suitcase. I’m quite happy to just live on the road for a while.”

Declan O’Donovan’s Broken Sky will be available on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, and other digital retailers and streaming services on Friday, June 2nd. For more information and the most up to date tour schedule, please visit:
