Irish singer/songwriter Davie Furey has been enjoying rapturous acclaim for his new album, Haunted Streets, which was released earlier this year back home in Ireland and will be available in the United States starting on July 9. The U.S. release will include two exclusive bonus tracks.

In anticipation of the record, Rock Cellar is premiering Furey’s music video for “Who Am I?,” one of the album’s tracks — and one Furey cites as a “lynchpin” to the entire album.

Where dreams roll and futures break
I could never give the heart you take
No substitute for the real thing
I can’t receive what it is you bring

On a darkened street where shadows fall
Stumble on my feet as I watch you crawl
Wanna lay you down
Where angels lie
Who Am I?
Who Am I?

Take it all in below:

Haunted Streets is Furey’s second full-length, and the follow-up to his 2015 debut Easy Come, Easy Go. For more on Furey, visit his official website.

Musically, Davie Furey cites John Prine, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan as influences. Accompanying him on Haunted Streets is a backing band of notable Irish musicians, including Steve Wickham (The Waterboys), guitarist Francie Conway, keyboardist Darren Holden (The High Kings), banjoist Robbie Campion (Drops of Green), vocalists ELLYD and Susan O’Neill, and drummer Andrew Quinn.

Some background regarding Furey’s career:

Born in Navan, the largest town in County Meath, Furey now lives in County Laois, in the midlands of Ireland. Music was a big part of childhood. He started playing with his cousins Robbie and Lee Campion, who both are professional musicians in Ireland. Early in his career, Furey found his initial success playing mainly cover tunes in clubs and bars.
