The Coro­nas released their new sin­gle Light Me Up on 17 July. It is the lat­est song to be revealed from their new album True Love Waits, released 31st July. The sin­gle fol­lows the crit­i­cal­ly acclaimed duet with Gabrielle Aplin called Lost In the Thick Of It

The band has also announced that all their con­certs in 2020 out­side of Ire­land are to be resched­uled to next year (new dates TBC).

The Coro­nas’ thir­teen-year jour­ney has def­i­nite­ly been unique. With a hand­ful of mul­ti-plat­inum sell­ing albums and a huge fan­base in their native Ire­land, the band were just about to embark on a 6‑month world tour when a cer­tain unfor­tu­nate­ly named virus tried to spoil the par­ty. Thank­ful­ly, the band are back with the new album.

“The first thing we did was tweet Corona beer”

“The first thing we did was tweet Coro­na the beer, ask­ing them what their plan was.” states Dan­ny O’Reilly, who has also tak­en time to speak to NME, The Guardian, and Metro how the band has tak­en it in their stride. “When we chat to our mates in bands who have post­poned gigs and tours I just remind them it could be worse, you could share a name with the virus!”

Lyri­cal­ly, ‘True Love Waits’ address­es every­thing from a new love in Danny’s life to look­ing back at past achieve­ments with pride to deal­ing with Dave’s depar­ture. It’s a career span­ning ret­ro­spec­tive with an opti­mistic look to the future as Dan­ny says, “We nev­er thought we’d make six albums, or be as excit­ed about music as we are now. It’s great that we’re not try­ing to com­pete with any­one else. We’d rather just out­do ourselves.”
