Little more than a year since his last album – the sublime 100 Acres of Sycamore‘ – Fionn Regan is back with new record The Bunkhouse Vol. I: Anchor Black Tattoo.

It’s Regan’s fourth studio album and was recorded in his Bunkhouse studio with a 4-track and a single microphone.

“I did quite a bit of touring on my own earlier this year supporting Feist,” he explains, “and although the rooms were big, I felt very much at home on the stage and after that I had a strong instinct to get right down to the brass tacks, back to the essense of what is it that I do as a songwriter, so that’s what I’ve done.

Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be bringing you some exclusive footage of Fionn talking about his art and music, ahead of the release of the new record, which dropped over in Ireland back in September. Check out the first video, at the top of the page.
