Irish superstar Dermot Kennedy's long-awaited second album 'Sonder' has been highly anticipated by fans and critics alike since the global success of his debut album 'Without Fear'.
The title 'Sonder', the encapsulating phrase for “the realisation that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own”, instantly resonated with Dermot and transformed into the perfect way to tie up a feeling in a record.
Dermot explained the thinking behind the title: "The meaning behind 'Sonder' has resonated with me so much for years. I exist in an industry where we're encouraged to constantly only think about ourselves and I find that exhausting and uninspiring. I want to learn about you. Let us share all of our triumphs, all of our troubles. Let this music belong to all of us, to find our own stories and our own solace within it.”
Dermot, who was nominated for the 'Best International Male' BRIT Award in 2020, has now amassed nearly 4 billion streams across platforms and has the best-selling debut album in Ireland of this millennium. 'Without Fear', Dermot's dynamic debut album has sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide, making him a platinum-selling artist in over 12 countries. Notably, his singles, 'Outnumbered', 'Power Over Me' and his collaboration with Meduza on single 'Paradise' have all now been certified Platinum, with 'Paradise' alone streaming over 500 million times.
