Ajimal is a collaborative project led by Newcastle’s Fran O’Hanlon. The past 12 months has seen him share the stage with the likes of Lucy Rose, James Vincent McMorrow & Little Comets. The debut single, ‘This Human Joy’ will be released on March 25th, followed closely by a concept mini album ‘Childhood’ due early Summer, on which he has collaborated with over 50 musicians exploring the ideas of youth, potential and play.
‘This Human Joy’ is a hopeful song about finding peace in the beauty of small and simple things, when often it’s easy to slip into feeling frustrated or irritated by the world, routine and to stop taking chances and risks. It’s about accepting the fact that we can’t always know where we’re going or what will happen to us and embracing those mysteries.
