Love Won’t Keep Time is a high-energy pop anthem about indecision in the face of opportunity. It is the first track on The Artful Roger, the artist’s debut studio album.
A fan favourite, The Artful Roger performed the Love Won’t Keep Time at numerous venues around Dublin prior to release. He recorded the track with Gary Duncan at Red Lake Sound Studios in Portlaoise and a music video for the song, produced by Daniel Buckley, will be released on the same day. An acoustic version of the song will be released 11 June.
The Artful Roger features 10 singles due for release over the next 12 months. A thematic collection of songs about resilience, each track will be accompanied by an acoustic arrangement to provide an alternate listening experience. The Artful Roger is working with several established players on the album, including Fiachra Kinder (Hozier), Jake Curran (Niall Horan, Dermot Kennedy), Gary Duncan (Shane McGowan, Big Generator), Brew (Bluesun), Jonathan Hayes (Kyro Jones), and members of the Newman Vocare.
Roger has played notable venues around Dublin such as The Grand Social, Workman’s Club, and The Underground. He has shared the stage with notable performers such as Kevin Casey, Luke Clerkin, Nobody’s Heroes, and Seán McComish. His debut single, Every Time, was a YouTube success in 2016, gaining over 175,000 hits on the music video. The release was supported with airplay on Spirit Radio, Dublin City FM, and KCLR and a headline show in Tivoli Backstage (now Drop Dead Twice).
