For the Last Time
Now featuring 3-bonus tracks “I Want It All Now”, “Is Anybody Out There” and “It’s Okay”, the album, originally released in 2012, was Mary’s debut album, co-written with songwriter, composer and producer Michael J. McEvoy.
“Beautiful sublte vocal harmonies, like Everything But The Girl, only not as depressing, and with better tunes.” – Steven Poole, The Guardian
“For The Last Time is a collection of songs written about a period in my life that now feels very far away, yet upon just one listen these songs bring it all back in an instant. Songs about leaving behind lonelier times, about breaking free from a safe yet claustrophobic world and about discovering more of who I really was and what I needed to do in order to be happier in my skin. It will forever remain a very precious piece of work with some very fond memories that came from the writing and making of the album with the truly talented Michael McEvoy.
Mike was a mentor to me throughout that period of my life, and with honesty, patience, kindness and creativity helped me to fly that little bit higher than I ever could have alone. The album has become, sort of, a piece of artwork that perhaps started to fade for a while. It’s exciting re-release through Air-Edel Records has allowed me to dust it down and hang on the wall somewhere, so I can remember with fondness and allow the next chapter of its journey to unfold.”
– Mary Leay
The album is available to download and stream across all digital platforms including Amazon, Spotify and iTunes.
