Fontaines D.C. 'Skinty Fia Deluxe Version' (Partisan)

Deluxe double LP on 45rpm 180gm black vinyl, housed in a gatefold jacket with printed inner sleeves, alternate cover artwork and 20-page lyric book.

 

2020’s A Hero’s Death saw Fontaines D.C. land a number 2 album in the UK, receive nominations at the Grammy's, Brit's and Ivor Novello Awards, and sell out London’s iconic Alexandra Palace. Now the band return with their third record in as many years: Skinty Fia. Used colloquially as an expletive, the title roughly translates from the Irish language into English as “the damnation of the deer”; the spelling crassly anglicized, and its meaning diluted through generations. Part bittersweet romance, part darkly political triumph - the songs ultimately form a long-distance love letter, one that laments an increasingly privatized culture in danger of going the way of the extinct Irish giant deer.
