The Black Brother's new album Glackanacker will be officially released on 15 March 2020 during the concert at the Freight and Salvage. However, it will also be for sale at the concerts leading up to the release date. You can also pre-order the album via the shop on this site.

A online-only bonus track for this album called "Roller Bowler" can be heard and downloaded from the Glackanacker album page.

Brilliantly produced by John Doyle, this new album features a wonderful variety of songs—traditional & original, comical & beautiful. Brothers Shay and Michael, with talented band members Eamonn Flynn and Félim Egan, are joined here by other stellar musicians, including Colm O'Riain (fiddle, viola), Mick McCauley (accordion), Mike McGoldrick (pipes and whistles), John McCusker (fiddle), Duncan Wickel (cello), and Rick Epping (harmonica).

On backing vocals we are joined by Mary and Frances Black, Martin Black, Roisin O, Aoife and Eoghan Scott, Shosi Black, and Ciara Black.
