Robert will release his new EP ‘Transcendence’ on November 20, we are pleased to announce.
The seven-track record, a collaboration with EDM producer Skynem GT, will include the critically acclaimed singles “Over (Before It’s Begun)”, “Older ’20” and “Real Good Fight”, all remastered for an enhanced listening experience.
The EP will also include new single “Destination Anywhere”, co-produced by Robert together with Skynem GT, and set for release on November 13. Listen to a teaser of the track above via YouTube.
Speaking about the project, Robert said: “I didn’t want to leave these songs floating around the streaming stratosphere as singles – it felt right to bring them together, re-polish them, and add some context in the form of an intro, interlude and outro. Skynem GT and I are delighted with the finished product, and we hope you’ll love it too!”
Check out the artwork for both releases, which was shot by Darius, near to where Robert grew up in Dublin 3.
"I find it hugely inspiring when people don't listen to any of the naysayers or gatekeepers and have a sort of tunnel vision that leads towards their goals".
Robert spoke to FV Music Blog this week about the people who inspire him most, songwriting in the shower, and his opinions on gatekeepers in the music industry. Read the interview in full at their website.
"Over (Before It's Begun)" also featured on FV Music Blog as one of the 'Hot Picks' this weekend!

Discussing his decision to work again with the Peruvian producer, Robert said: “During the global pandemic, I took the opportunity to look back through my catalogue and release a bunch of reissues and remasters. When I listened to “Over”, I felt it was a song that had never reached its full potential – the lyric and melody is one of my favourites I’ve written, but the production fell short”.
He added: “Since we were in lockdown, and I was experiencing monumental growth in my streams – up by 743% on Spotify – I felt that it was important to release something, but quality control is important to me, so I decided to take something I thought already had the makings of a great song and allow Skynem GT to work his magic”.
Robert also revealed the track is lyrically a prequel to "Older '20", explaining: "It's about the same relationship, the one you build-up in your head as being "it", and then you get stuck in the friend zone!"

It’s the ultimate #FlashbackFriday!
Bandcamp are kindly waiving their revenue share on artist’s sales until 12am tonight, to help independent artists out with financial losses as a result of COVID 19.
Robert has raided his archives, and released expanded versions of his debut album 'Distance', his EP 'Resistance', as well as every single, to include remixes, instrumentals, unplugged versions, demos and even a previously unreleased track.
His full discography can be purchased now with a 25% discount for €24.75, or you can pick and choose which tracks to buy. Simply head over to Robert's Bandcamp store to start shopping!
Speaking about the release, Robert told his mailing list members:
"In all honesty, I did this more for the sense of completion than for financial gain, because when I think about the artists I follow - Pet Shop Boys spring to mind as an act who reign supreme at this - I really appreciate the option to purchase all of these little extras that otherwise would never see the light of day for one reason or another".
Robert will release his new single "Older '20", a collaboration with EDM artist Skynem GT, on February 21.

Speaking about the collaboration, Robert said: "We connected creatively in a way that we knew there was more to explore beyond one remix. Skynem GT’s EDM sonic palette and my country storytelling lyric and vocal are an unlikely fit, but we’re lucky as artists that right now we live in an era of genre-bending".
Robert has released a new music video for "River", dedicated to "the less fortunate at Christmas".

He added: "This single was always about an experimental moment for me, deviating from my recent country output, and now seems like the perfect time to fully embrace that by collaborating with new names in the EDM community".
