Album artwork for Time Stopped by The Coronas

Ireland's popular band The Coronas, whose trajectory took a curious detour due to sharing a name with the virus that shut down the world in 2020, return with a strong, new album aptly titled Time Stopped. The LP addresses the pandemic head on via 12 original songs bearing an underlying theme of hope. The band's seventh record builds on the momentum gained from their last release, True Love Waits, which topped the Irish charts in July 2020.

Recorded largely at Eastcote Studios in London, where the band has recorded previously, with producer George Murphy (The Specials, Ellie Goulding, Mumford and Sons) and mixing with Grammy-winning mixer Peter Katis, making Time Stopped was a very positive experience for the band. "We'd worked with George before so it was just really comfortable," Danny explains. "After the two years of the pandemic, it felt so good to be back in the studio, locked away from the world, and just being a band again."

Overall, Time Stopped is an album about hopefulness. Danny explains that the album's through line addresses with how we all sought to be connected in the time of global panic. "When everything is suddenly upside down," he says, "relationships and our place in the world are given a new perspective. Even though it came together in an uncertain time, Time Stopped is a positive album about togetherness and support."
