‘Memoir’ is the first new track we have heard from Conor since the release of Becoming A Jackal, and it proves that 18 months on the road has not dimmed his songwriting ability. It is just as strong a track as anything that appeared on the album, and whets the appetite for the shows he is playing around Ireland next month.

The first recording is taken from the Carson Daly show, Villagers first appearance on prime time American tv. The audio cuts out a few seconds early though, so make sure to watch the two great live videos of the track as well, which contain the ending.
