Darling Arithmetic, the third album from Villagers, is now streaming in full via iTunes - listen HERE.


Alongside the album’s lead single Courage and new tracks Hot Scary Summer and The Soul Serene, Conor O’Brien recently discussed the release of the new album in a new interview with Irish comedian David ODoherty. Watch the hilarious outcome below.


Darling Arithmetic is the follow-up to Conor OBrien’s debut, Becoming a Jackal, and its successor, Awayland - both hugely acclaimed and each nominated for The Mercury Music Prize. 

It’s a breathtakingly beautiful, intimate album entirely about love and relationships. For more information on Darling Arithmetic visit the album’s microsite HERE.
