The following is taken from a recent Irish Times article called First Encounters: Singer-Songwriter Damien Rice and Composer David Arnold

Damien Rice is an Irish singer-songwriter whose first album, ‘O’, released by himself in 2002, became a major success in Ireland, the UK and US. His third album, ‘My Favourite Faded Fantasy’, was released recently. Originally from Celbridge, Co Kildare, he says he currently lives out of a suitcase

My grandmother – my father’s mother, Mary Rice – showed me a paper clipping one day that had some news about some music David was composing for a film. She said, you know you have this second cousin in London, you should send him some of your songs. Before that I hadn’t known about him. I was a fan of the song Play Dead by Björk, but didn’t realise that he had worked closely with her on it.

We get on really well – it was a relief to find someone else in the family who’d gone down a similar road. We first met around 2000. I loved his sense of humour, especially about the music and entertainment industry. It was never serious; his light-heartedness kept things very buoyant.

Interview: Rolling Stone Magazine

Damien Rice on How Eight Years of Soul-Searching Led to Long-Awaited LP

The Irish singer-songwriter discusses the spiritual journey that led to his “scarred” new LP

With 9, Damien Rice scored his first Number One in his home country, topping the Irish album chart in the fall of 2006. The singer-songwriter followed with a world tour and a pair of live albums but put off returning to the studio in order to spend some time in self-reflection. “When I was a teenager, I thought I’d know more when I was a man,” he says. “But now that I’m a man, I’m working on unlearning most of the things I learned as a teenager.”

Two years ago, Rice and producer Rick Rubin began recording the tracks that would form My Favourite Faded Fantasy, a raw return that document the musician’s long period of soul-searching. Between European tour dates (he comes to North America next spring) Rice opened up about his spiritual journey and invigorating new LP.

Does writing come easily or is it more of a difficult process? What were you doing during those years in between records?
