A dynamic and powerful live performer, Dermot Kennedy has become one of the biggest and fastest selling live artists ever following his historic run of Irish shows in 2022 - with eight huge concerts across Ireland. He also headlined Electric Picnic to over 70,000 people in September. His debut album “Without Fear” is also the biggest selling album of the millennium by an Irish artist.
Nominated for the “Best International Male” BRIT Award in 2020, Dermot has now amassed nearly 4 billion streams across platforms and has the best-selling debut album in Ireland of this millennium, making him a platinum-selling artist in over 12 countries. His unique ability to unify and heal through his music has been apparent since the inception of his organic and meteoric rise. His poetic, compelling music has resonated with music lovers across the globe, with notables including Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa and Shawn Mendes all calling themselves fans.
“Kiss Me” is the latest track to be unveiled ahead of Dermot’s anticipated forthcoming new album, Sonder, out November 4th. The new single and video, “Kiss Me” is out now on Island Records/Interscope.
The forthcoming new album is an exciting new chapter for the global star. Sonder is summarized as “the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own,” a term that has resonated deeply with Kennedy. Highlights from the album include the lead single "Something to Someone" which has topped over 20 million streams.
“Kiss Me” is Dermot at his pop-finest. A master storyteller, he marries poignant lyrics about love’s intensity with an infectious, hook-laden melody that immediately draws the listener in. The duality of the song’s more serious narrative alongside the upbeat track makes for a surprising and deeply satisfying listen and displays his penchant to craft an unforgettable pop song. Co-written by Dermot, Dan Smith (Bastille), KOZ (Kendrick Lamar, Dua Lipa) and Steve Mac (Pink, Ed Sheeran), “Kiss Me” was also co-produced by Mac and KOZ.
