Listen: The Beautiful New Single From The Late David Turpin

The new single from queer Irish singer-songwriter, The Late David Turpin is out, and just in time for the Pope’s visit, it’s an achingly beautiful love song from God to Lucifer, the devil himself.

The Late David Turpin's 'Lucifer'

“I always felt that, deep down, God and Lucifer were just two flamboyant queens who couldn’t get it together.”

Sung by erstwhile Sack and Elevens front-man Martin McCann, ‘Lucifer’ love song from the Lord to Lucifer. It’s the first release from The Late David Turpin’s forthcoming album Romances, a new song cycle made in collaboration with eleven lead vocalists and over sixty musicians, producers and artists.

“I thought it would be appropriate listening for the Papal visit,” says Turpin. “Perhaps it’s just ten years of Catholic boys’ school talking, but I always felt that, deep down, God and Lucifer were just two flamboyant queens who couldn’t get it together.”

We think ‘Lucifer’ is Turpin’s best single yet, while McCann’s voice has never been better. It also promises great things for the forthcoming album.

‘Lucifer’ is offered for streaming or free download from today, as respectful counter-programming to Pope Francis’ visit to Ireland.

Listen to ‘Lucifer’ on Spotify or download it free from Soundcloud now. Watch the lyric video below.
