Details Of Andrea Begley’s Debut Album

September 5, 2013

I’ll be buying this.

The Voice winner Andrea Begley has announced details of her debut album.


Titled The Message, the album contains cover versions of Andrea’s favourite songs including Bruce Springteen’s Dancing in the Dark as well as original tracks.


A reworking of Jake Bugg’s Lightning Bolt also appears on the album.


Begley, 27, from Northern Ireland beat finalists Leah McFall, Mike Ward and Matt Henry to win the BBC singing contest in June.



Since winning the competition Andrea has focussed on completing her debut record as well as working on a book about her experiences on The Voice.


The singer’s coach from the show, Danny O’Donoghue, joined her in the recording studio to give his support and produce the album’s title track, The Message, which is a track written by Begley.


Andrea says: “Danny has been a fantastic source of support to me both throughout the show and beyond it.


“He has always believed in me and in my songs and it was a total honour and privilege for him to produce one of my own songs for the album.


“I couldn’t stop smiling while I stood in the studio with him working on the track. I count myself a very lucky person.”


Andrea says The Message: “Offers the listener a first taste of the direction I intend to go as an artist beyond this point.”


The Message will be released on 21 October.


Andrea has also announced her first headline shows following the release of her debut album.


She’ll be performing at the Ulster Hall in Belfast on 3 November, and the Union Chapel in Islington on 4 November.


The track listing for The Message is as follows:


1. Ho Hey


2. Dancing In The Dark


3. Secret Smile


4. Breakfast At Tiffany’s


5. The Message


6. Lightning Bolt


7. Angel
