Today, Irish songwriter, producer and artist Cian Ducrot has released his newest effort, ‘Know Me Again‘. A poignant song about heart-wrenching breakups that are so devastating that you wish to be reintroduced to your love to start afresh. Listen HERE.
The song, written by Cian himself and frequent collaborator (and past roommate) Cate, is a feat in songwriting excellence. The pair’s voices flutter across the melody of ‘Know Me Again‘ slowly lulling in the listener to then crescendo into a massive peak as Cian’s booming vocals and production pairs up against Cate’s saccharine-like vocal work. ‘Know Me Again‘ is another clear indicator of Cian’s masterful handling of evoking raw emotion through music.
Speaking on the song’s making, Cian had this to share: “Cate and I wrote Know Me Again over FaceTime, and then we kind of forgot about it for a long time. It wasn’t until my nearly five year relationship had ended that we came back to this song to finish it, and we realised how special it was. This was one of the first songs Cate and I ever wrote together, and it was the start of a wonderful friendship and songwriting journey. This song means the world to us both 🤍.” Be on the lookout for more Cian Ducrot soon.
