To support Dublin’s bid to become the European Capital of Culture in 2020, Lethal Dialect was asked to draw inspiration from the tradition and the history of Dublin and bring in the vibrancy and power of modern music and Dublin culture. The song was inspired by ‘The Dublin Saunter (Dublin Can Be Heaven)’ composed by Leo Maguire and originally recorded by Noel Purcell in the 1940s.
