Elephant’ means a lot to me, Flynn says of new single

Mullingar singer, songwriter Flynn – who is to have his debut headline show at The Workman’s Cellar in Dublin on June 8 – has released a new single, ‘Elephant’.

“This song has taken me around every bend and taught me the real meaning of patience,” he says.

Twenty-nine-year-old Darren, originally from Pettitswood, and a past pupil of Coláiste Mhuire, who studied his craft in Bristol, is set to release his second EP later this year, and Elephant is one of the tracks from that.

Elephant is Flynn’s first release in over a year.

“So it’s safe to say I’ve got the major spooks, but I’m just happy to be sharing music again!” he told fans in advance of the midnight April 28 release of Elephant.

The performer impressed fans on Saturday when he performed on Saturday at the Lakeland Sessions, part of the Westmeath Bachelor festival.

“‘Elephant’ means a lot to me,” Flynn has said of the new single.

“It takes a lot for me to talk about my mental health in a song. It’s always like a huge weight off my shoulders when I eventually get to open up. Music is honestly the best form of therapy for me.”
