Janet Devlin Releases 'House Of Cards' Single In The UK On 26th May 2014

Flame-haired Northern Irish singer-songwriter Janet Devlin is back, stronger than ever, and set to release her second single 'House of Cards' on 26th May 2014. This infectious track is taken from her debut album 'Running With Scissors'. Due for release on 9th June 2014, this 10-track record is full of folk-driven pop songs and heart touching ballads, showcasing Janet's unique and enchanting vocals that first caught the public's attention on Series 8 of The X factor in 2011.

'House of Cards' is a slice of toe-tapping folk-pop, featuring epic crescendos, lush breathy vocals, acoustic guitars and rolling percussion. There is a real autonomy to everything that Janet does, as she has a hand in her songwriting, styling and even came up with the concept and creative for the 'House of Cards' music video, which is directed by Henry Steedman (Kate Winslet's brother-in-law).

In her own words the single is: "A more recent song I've written but lyrically it was written after a bad breakup I had 2 years ago. The song gets more and more impersonal as it goes on - starting at 'dear love' and ending on 'hey boy'.  The idea behind the King of Hearts symbolism was to reiterate the idea of the boy being heartless as his heart was 'never found'."

Growing up on a diet of Kerrang! TV in County Tyrone, Janet's love for music was initially fuelled by bands such as Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chili Peppers, who inspired her to pick up an instrument and write her own songs. At just 19 years old, Janet has recently been co-writing with some of her musical heroes Newton Faulkner and Jack Savoretti and her quirky and exposed yet shy nature has won her a huge online following of over 350,000 fans that call themselves The Devlinators.

Janet is due to tour the UK later in the year and you can catch her live at the Jazz Café, London on 11th June. Tickets are priced at 10 GBP and are available via Janet's website.
