Conor O’Brien has returned with details of his new Villagers album Fever Dreams.

“I wanted the warmth of the record reflected in its title,” he’s said of lead single That Golden Time.

The song also touches on a theme that keeps cropping up, of romanticism versus realism. How can you have aspirational ideas about yourself and the world around you, whilst being confronted with a harsh, cold reality? The friction interested me.

With the album due out on May 10th, an appearance at London’s Royal Festival Hall the following month has been added to the previously announced date at Dublin’s Trinity College which is set to be O’Brien’s biggest headline show to-date.

Fever Dreams tracklist:

Truly Alone
