Markéta & Glen will be performing their first shows together in over a decade in March 2022 to coincide with the 15th anniversary of the film ONCE. These select dates will highlight songs from The Swell Season and Once as well as their individual careers.
Marketa Irglova has released Among the Living, an epic and powerful song she carefully regards as a compassionate elegy for 2020, available via all major streaming platforms.
I want to use this opportunity to share with you a video made back in 2012 in Argentina by my friend Alejandro Rojas to a song of mine called We Are Good.
When touring around the world was my main occupation, I had the fortune and privilege of being in a position to meet many wonderful people. This is how I found my way to Iceland and met Sturla Mio Thorisson.
The Leading Bird video is nominated in the Nordic Music Video Awards, in the audience’s favorite category: The Gaffa Audience Award. What an honor! Thank you and congratulations to all other nominees.
Hey guys – I am just back in Iceland for a few days before we head out to Czech Republic for a show in Plzeň (March 29th), or Pilsen as it would be more known. I was asked to sing the Czech version of the title track of a beautiful Irish animated movie called Song of the Sea, originally sung by Lisa Hannigan. This was a very fun project for me and I wanted to share with you the trailer made for Czech cinemas where Song of the Sea premiered this month. Czech it out 🙂
We are pleased to announce that Marketa will be joining Damien Rice for four of his US tourdates in April! Mar will be performing solo on these dates. She and Damien have shared the stage together before so this will be a special night of music. You can hear Mar on Damien’s new record, My Favourite Faded Fantasy on the song “Long Long Way”.
Please enjoy Marketa’s official video for This Right Here from MUNA.
Ok. It’s been a couple of weeks now since I came home from touring with my new record MUNA around the States and Europe, and although two weeks isn’t a long time, it is perhaps long enough for me to have integrated at least some if not all the experiences of this adventure. I returned home with an immense sense of accomplishment, along with a mixture of joy, gratitude, pride, sadness and relief. [Read More]

Check out this behind the scenes look at the making of MUNA. We’re excited to share some of the creative energy that went into the recording process.
We’re so pleased to share this new video for The Leading Bird from the upcoming record MUNA. It features dancer Maria Alejandra Jara De Marco and was made in Iceland by our friends at Refur Creative, Hörður Sveinsson, Helgi Jóhannsson and Atli Viðar. It premiered at Spin.com earlier today.
I met Mary many years ago, when I was still living in Ireland. I came over to Glen’s place for a cuppa tea one day and there she was in his garden, helping him to plant some onions. I fell in love with Mary straight away.
Back in 2010, when I had just made a transition from living in Ireland to renting an apartment in Manhattan, I attended a concert held at a cafe/art gallery called Zora space in Park Slope, Brooklyn. At the door, I was greeted by a most lovely presence…
We’re elated to announce that Marketa’s second solo record, MUNA, will be available on 23rd September 2014 worldwide on ANTI Records and she will be touring North America and Europe this Fall.
It is wonderful that you have found your way here, giving me an opportunity to introduce you to my new record MUNA, which is coming out this fall. It has been ready and waiting for some time now for its moment to be heard and it brings me much joy and excitement that the time has come, for I have been excited to share it with you.
