Dana Releases New Album!


Rosemary Scallon aka Dana who is best known for winning the Eurovision Song Contest back in 1970, has made a comeback to music this week. On 1 November, the ‘All Kinds of Everything’ singer released her first non-religious album in many years. The album is called ‘My Time’ and the first single release is called ‘Falling’.

Dana returns to music following several failed attempts to pursue a political career. In 1997 and 2011 she ran in the Irish Presidential elections but received 14% and 3% in the respective campaigns. In terms of music, throughout the 1980s and 1990s the singer released over 20 albums that are inspired by her Catholic faith. Most notably she wrote the widely popular hymn ‘Lady of Knock’.

Dana is not the only one in the family pursuing new music. Her niece and nephew have formed a band called Rua and rumour has it they have designs to follow in their aunt’s footsteps and represent Ireland at Eurovision. Only time will tell if the rumours ring true.

In the meantime, check out Dana’s recent interview with Lorraine Kelly:
