Interview: Esquire (11 Nov 2014)

AMIEN RICE ON HIS TRIUMPHANT RETURN
After nearly a decade away, the musician talks about letting go of old negativity—and why we may see a lot more from him.

By Sarah Rowland on November 11, 2014

After eight years of silence, Damien Rice is more heartfelt and raw than ever on his new release, My Favorite Faded Fantasy, out this week. The past few years have undoubtedly been a growing period for the 40-year-old Irish musician, who now seems more relaxed and comfortable in his own skin. In conversation, he’s poetic and self-assured. His piercing blue eyes stare a moment too long, and he’s unafraid of thoughtful, silent pauses. Rice attributes his creative regeneration to letting go of outside expectations and old, lingering feelings that had infected his music. When we met up after he performed a show to launch the new album in London, Lisa Hannigan—Damien’s old partner in music and love—ironically started playing in the background. “That’s Lisa’s song on the radio,” he said. Then, with a quick smile, he was on to telling his next story.

Interview: Irish Times (31 Oct 2014)

Damien Rice: Fading back into view

On the eve of the release of My Favourite Faded Fantasy, Reykjavik resident Rice talks to us

“You’re doing something, you’re doing something, boom, you crash, burn, you fail. You beat yourself up, and then you find your way out of it.”

Damien Rice is talking about how everything just . . . stopped. He’s sitting in a room high up in a building called Idno in Reykjavik, an old restaurant-theatre- venue that looks out on to the water. When Rice talks about the “big crash and burn” that began an eight-year hiatus from releasing records, he speaks about the disintegration of relationships in his band. They had started from a place of innocence, he says, then touring was exciting, then everything got bigger, then money came in, then the whole thing fell apart.

Interview: Irish Independent (30 Oct 2014)

Damien Rice: ‘I opened every can of worms I could…’

We are deep in the barren Icelandic countryside, miles from Reykjavik, and Damien Rice is playing one of the most intimate shows of his life.

There’s a small crowd of friends and musicians and a handful of journalists present in this former swimming pool-turned-recording studio. It is in this very space that Sigur Ros made some of their finest albums.

But this Monday evening in early September is all about the songsmith from Celbridge, Co Kildare, beginning promotional rounds for the release his first album of new material in eight years.
