Villagers “You Lucky One” – Steph’s DJ Pick of the Week 

Villagers "You Lucky One" - Steph's DJ Pick of the Week

Steph’s DJ Pick of the Week is “You Lucky One” by Villagers! 

“You Lucky One” is the newest track from singer-songwriter Conor O’Brien. Creating under the name Villagers, O’Brien is back with the announcement of his sixth studio album, That Golden Time. “You Lucky One” stands as the second single drop from the new album; it follows the release of the title track, “That Golden Time.” 

The Dublin native has cemented himself as a force in the industry. Featuring his melodic instumentals, “You Lucky One” is a perfect addition to his already vast and diverse discography. This track, in particular, features Irish legend Dónal Lunny on bouzouki. It allows for the track to feel oddly nostalgic and cozy. He has a talent for writing songs about his hopes, dreams, and fears in an absolutely captivating way. It allows for listeners to connect to him and his message. 

The accompanying music video marks the music-video directorial for O’Brien. With a straight-to-camera shot, the true meaning of the song is able to shine through. It’s a look into people’s hidden faces and the twisted narrative behind it all. 

Releasing on May 10, That Golden Time features the poetic lyrics and sonic intricacy Villagers is know for. “You Lucky One” is just a small taste into the world of Villagers. With tour dates throughout May and June abroad, the full length album is bound to be electric.
