Buy Ronan's Christmas e-card for Cancer Research UK
Ronan has joined a bunch of other artists in creating a Christmas e-card for you to enjoy! All you need to do is make a donation of £2 or more to Ronan's chosen charity Cancer Research UK via the BT website, and you will receive a link to your e-card.
Ronan says, "Christmas is about being with those we love, and spreading a bit of festive cheer. I've been an ambassador for Cancer Research UK for many years, and jumped at the chance to be part of the BT MyDonate Christmas card campaign – it's a great way to make a donation and get a card which you can share with all of your friends and family."
Go on - we think this piece of art is worth £2 ;)
Daniel Healy talks about Ronan's album
You may remember Dan from Once, where he played Eamon? Him and Ronan have spent a lot of time writing songs together and recording for Ronan's new album. Dan recently shared his thoughts on the album via his Facebook page and this makes us feel so, so proud!
"Wow. Not being biased. But it is going to really shock a lot of people. It's real, raw but sticks to true who he is and what he has now become. It's a wonderful record and I'm proud to be a part of something so transformational and inspiring."
Have you preordered the CD yet?
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 via his official website! There is a signed as well as an unsigned copy (yeah we know... easy choice!). Alternatively, you can preorder both the signed and unsigned version on Amazon UK.
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.
