Speaking on the upcoming project and single, Cian had this to share:
“‘Hello Gorgeous’ is a song I wrote for all the amazing women in my life who have sadly suffered at the hands of shitty men. It’s a song that I hope can help someone somewhere who is suffering or who has suffered and can help them get out of that place and show them they don’t need to stay and continue to be in pain.” — Cian Ducrot
Alongside the release of the song, the twenty-four year old artist also announced a brand new EP titled Make Believe which will be released on December 2nd. The exciting announcement also comes at the heels of two monumental shows performed by Cian earlier this week — his first sold out show at the Colours Hoxton as well as his first headlining date in his hometown of Dublin, Ireland. The EP will be Ducrot’s first on Darkroom/Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company.

About Cian Ducrot —
Raised in Cork and based in London but just as likely to be found recording in LA, Cian Ducrot takes a nomadic approach to pop music. Home for this 24-year-old singer, songwriter, producer and classically-trained multi-instrumentalist is wherever he happens to find his laptop and guitar — but no matter where he is. Growing up in a broken home, Cian sought relief in music, listening to his Mum playing everything from Bach to Chopin — often finding that music was a way to escape the trials of abuse, a turbulent family dynamic and more. It’s no surprise that he went on to focus on music in school, joining musicals, drama clubs, mastered different instruments and performing from a young age. Cian will eventually win a full scholarship to study classical flute at the Royal Academy of Music — one of the most prestigious performing arts schools in the world. Around the same time, Cian knew that to create original music he would have to teach himself how to produce. And so he did.
A couple of years into his schooling, Cian took a short trip to Los Angeles, CA — a trip that inspired him to pursue his dream of becoming a pop artist instead of a classical flautist. He decided to take a risk leaving his schooling (and the full ride scholarship that came with it) and moved back to Ireland to plan for his new dream. Cian was steadfast in his new writing journey, with money being tight he would often couch surf between London and L.A. The product of these experiences was his debut release; started in college (2020) — a mixtape that chronicles his unconventional road into the music industry. The risk ended up paying off when he was discovered by Darkroom/Interscope Records last Summer; promptly signed him to the label. Capitalizing on his natural talent and years of dedication, the Irish songwriter/producer and artist is at work on a new project and aims to showcase his diverse talents exploring revealing issues of love, loss, masculinity and frustration. Cian wishes to create music that listeners can relate to and find solace in – not unlike how a young Cian once did.
