Album release date and preorder link!
Ronan's new album - untitled as of yet - will be released on Feb 12, 2016... and you can preorder the CD already! You have the choice between a signed or an unsigned copy (yeah we know... easy choice!). We're loving the new press photos as well!
Here's what Ronan saiys about the album.... "I've spent the majority of my life and career pleasing everyone else, doing what people expected of me and in a sense I lost the confidence just to simply be me. Over the last few years I have been on an incredible journey and it's the best thing that could have happened to me, as now I'm finally comfortable in my own skin and truly happy.
This album is a true reflection of who I am and the music I want to make. It's taken a year to write but in that time I have given the most honest piece of me."

New merchandise in the Universal Music Store
Universal have added a beautiful new mug to their official web store featuring one of the images from the new 2016 wall calendar. Check out a larger photo of them item in the online store - and treat yourself (keep in mind Christmas is just over a month away as well)! We think it's the best Ronan mug ever and if this photo doesn't wake you up over your breakfast then nothing will.
Universal are now selling the 2016 calendar too, but depending on where you live, it's probably worth comparing the price and shipping cost with Danilo and other websites selling it because that might be cheaper.

Goodbye, Once the Musical...
After an absolutely amazing four months of performing in the West End, we reached the end of this wonderful journey on March 21. We can honestly say it was the best thing Ronan's ever done (although we prefer his own songs!), involving the most talented people he's ever worked with - and he's finally started getting some of the credit he deserves. We hope that many of you were able to go and watch the show.
Here's an extra song that was performed after the final show (not filmed by us). By then, everyone was in tears, including the actors. So hard to say goodbye to this amazing cast.
