Cian Ducrot pulls on all our heartstrings this week with the release of his latest single “I’ll Be Waiting” – an emotive, plain-speaking power ballad that details the singers frustrations at dealing with a loved one who continuously lets him down.
Serving as the follow up to “All For You” – Ducrot’s duet with Ella Henderson, which has since become his highest charting single to date – the song is available to download / stream via Polydor on all major platforms now.
In a press release announcing the single, Cian says of the highly anticipated track: “It’s a story of waiting for someone you love to show up, but they tend to not show up when you need them. I didn’t want to have a relationship with my dad as a child, he was a horrible person, but also when you’re a kid you still want your dad to care.”
“I know people have been waiting for this song for a while now, I know the teaser clip got over 5 million views or something which is crazy! Highly awaited, the single teaser alone has generated over 5 million views already across social platforms. “Everything I post at the moment is like ‘that’s cool, great your tour is sold-out, but when is ‘I’ll Be Waiting’ released?’ So it’s finally here, and I hope people like it.”

Early next year, Cian will embark on an already sold-out tour across the UK, with stops in Glasgow, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Birmingham, Swansea, Bristol, Oxford, London, Dublin, Belfast, Killarney, Galway, Limerick, Kilkenny, before ending with two dates in his hometown, Cork.
Those lucky enough to have secured tickets for the shows will see the Irish singer-songwriter perform some of his biggest – including ‘Crocodiles’, ‘Not Usually Like This’ and ‘Hello Gorgeous’ – as well as a selection of new tracks set to feature on his upcoming studio album.
