There’s nearly 4,000 children homeless in Ireland. Focus Ireland help over 15,500 people a year who are homeless or at risk.
With all proceeds going to Focus Ireland, globally feted singer extraordinaire. Camille O'Sullivan and internationally acclaimed actor (The Wire/Game of Thrones/Peaky Blinders) Aidan Gillen have recorded a duet of Roy Orbison's classic In Dreams, the track immortalised in David Lynch's 1986 movie, Blue Velvet.
Camille and Aidan's take on Orbison's old chestnut was recorded in Dublin's Windmill Lane Studios and then produced and mixed at New Aer Studios in London by John Reynolds, who has worked with everyone from Damien Dempsey to U2 to Brian Eno and Sinead O’Connor. It was arranged by Camille O’Sullivan and Feargal Murray.
Camille and Aidan's version of In Dreams is an edgy three minutes of atmospheric genius that will go on to become a alt.classic of its time. (There is no one quite like Camille O’Sullivan in popular music right now,” wrote Neil McCormick in the Telegraph in 2012, and seven years on that still holds true.
The ambient mix of In Dreams is produced by John Reynolds & Chris Pemberton (John Grant).
Barry Egan, for the Sunday Independent, was executive producer on the project. All proceeds of In Dreams going to Focus Ireland.
