Robert O’Connor Releases New Single «Mysterious Times»

Robert O’Connor, the talented Dublin artist, has recently released a new single titled «Mysterious Times». Originally recorded in 1999 by German producer/DJ Sash! with guest vocals by Tina Cousins, Robert’s re-imagining of the song takes a stark approach, shining a spotlight on the lyrics that feel more fitting than ever in today’s world.

A Personal Connection to the Song

When asked about his decision to record «Mysterious Times», Robert shared, «When I recorded my last EP, Sash! was a reference I found myself mentioning frequently, and this song has always been a favorite of mine. When I heard it out of the blue on the radio one day, I took it as a sign».

Upcoming Projects and Album

Robert is currently working on the follow-up to his 2022 EP, «Severance», which garnered over 150,000 Spotify streams and produced five LGBTQ Music Chart top 3 hits. The EP received acclaim from publications like Retro Pop, who praised Robert’s superb songwriting and noted that it showcased his unique sound.

Expected to be released later in 2024, Robert’s upcoming album promises to be a «pop pic’n’mix», as he brings a multitude of musical references to the table. Describing the creative process, Robert explains, «I brought so many references to the table that my producer’s head nearly exploded! One day it was ’80s German electropop, and the next, it was ’00s Ibiza chillout».

While Robert has released 18 singles and three EPs to date, the as-yet-untitled album will only be his second full-length record, following his debut album «Distance» in 2008. Fans eagerly awaited the release of «Mysterious Times» as a tantalising tease for Robert’s return to the long-play format.
