The Boot: Danny Burns, 'Great Big Sea' [Exclusive Premiere]

“Irish singer-songwriter Danny Burns is preparing for the release of a new album in mid-January, but he's giving The Boot's readers an advance first listen to one of the tracks. Press play above to hear "Great Big Sea," and see its accompanying music video.

"Great Big Sea" finds Burns teaming up with bluegrass great Tim O'Brien -- one of Burns' numerous special guests on his new record -- who provides harmony vocals and one heck of a mandolin solo. The song's story came to Burns while he was writing in his mother's kitchen in Donegal, Burns' hometown in the northwest part of Ireland.”
