Moncrieff Releases Heartfelt New Single ‘Perfect’


Irish singer-songwriter Moncrieff has released his heartfelt new single Perfect. Moncrieff’s soulful vocals scar over warm piano chords and subtle strings in this arena-ready ballad which showcases the Irish-bom’s ability to write uplifting melodies that simultaneously pull at the heartstrings. Listen here.

Speaking about the single, Moncriett says: “Perfect is a very personal song for me about all those small moments in a relationship that make you realise that something isn’t as perfect as it once felt. It can be so hard to admit that something just isn’t right in a relationship and, despite your loyalty and care towards each other, sometimes good things come to an end.”

Moncrieff has already performed with Adele and impressed greats like Elton John and Avicii with his songwriting, yet he is only getting started. His debut single Warm’ released earlier this year was an instant hit at Irish and German radio and was performed live with The RTÉ Concert Orchestra & Dublin Gospel Choir on The Tommy Tieman Show.

A self-produced six-track EP also titled ‘Warm’ followed in September, that served as an introduction to Moncrieff’s poignant, vulnerable and deeply personal songwriting and clocked in 6 million streams in just two weeks. Moncrieff’s intimate compositions offer a stunning sonic portrait of an exceptional musician who isn’t afraid to address his demons in the studio. Having lost two siblings as a teenager, Moncrieff turned to songwriting as a way to heal and has been on a mission to connect with people through music ever since. After moving to London to pursue his music career, it wasn’t long before the music greats took notice. Sir Elton John noted him as ‘one to watch’ on his radio show The Rocket Hour and Adele recruited him to perform as a backing vocalist for a number of her live shows.

With his new single ‘Perfect, Moncrieff has stepped up his songwriting once again and continues to prove himself as one of the most remarkable new singer-songwriter talents to emerge from Ireland. The track has already had a huge reaction from both new and existing fans, having been teased on TikTok and had its live debut while on a 30 date European tour during winter 2023, prompting seas of lighters- in-the-air moments in venues all over Europe.

The release marks a new chapter and rounds off a hugely successful year for Moncrieff which has also seen him bring his incredible stage presence to festivals in Europe, sell out his first tour in Ireland (April 2022), perform sold-out headline shows in London and several German cities, open for The Script (European Tour), Leon (Scandinavian tour), Philip Poisel (German Arena tour) Stereophonics (Irish tour) and ending year performing to a sold-out Dublin Olympia Theatre earlier this month (2000 cap sold out in an hour) at the end of his European tour dates..

With more new music and live shows to come, watch this space to see Moncrieff climb new heights in 2023 and beyond.
