Lisa Hannigan

At Swim' is Lisa's Hannigan's critically acclaimed third album, released through Play It Again Sam. Produced by Aaron Dessner, the album entered the UK charts at No. 24 giving

Lisa her highest charting album to date in the UK whilst in Ireland, Hannigan repeated the success of her second album 'Passenger', by scoring her second Irish No. 1, It's also been announced the 'At Swim' is shortlisted for the 2017 Irish Choice Music Prize - earning Hannigan her third nomination in a row.

After touring for two years in support of her previous album 'Passenger', Hannigan began writing songs from 'At Swim'. Although she struggled to write new material while being in London, away from home and from what she describes as her "usual anchors and points of reference", Hannigan had a breakthrough when she got an email out of the blue from Aaron Dessner - guitarist in The National and producer of Dark Was The Night and records by Sharon Van Etten, This Is The Kit and Frightened Rabbit, among others. Working with Dessner and rediscovering the collaborative spirit she'd missed in Dublin enabled Hannigan to see her life in London in a different light. 'At Swim' is in part about homesickness and isolation as well as about loveĀ
