Ahead of his upcoming third album, Irish singer-songwriter Ciaran Lavery unveils his first single “To Chicago,” premiering on Billboard today (Jan. 25).
The song is a beautifully wholesome homage to love in its purest and fullest form, with Lavery’s voice hitting its familiar endearingly androgynous sound throughout. Its acoustics are simple, making it a sweet and simple easy listening song, which seems to be part of Lavery’s intentions.
“In its purest form, this is a romantic song,” the singer-songwriter tells Billboard. “I wanted to write something unapologetically good, a message of love without conditions. I haven’t heard any recent songs about love that didn’t come without a trap door and I miss that the sentiment cannot exist just as it is.”
