Promenade is The Divine Comedy's third album. It was released in 1994 on Setanta to much critical acclaim but little commercial success. It is a concept album about two lovers who spend a day at the seaside. The album's style is even more than its predecessor, Liberation. The string arrangements are reminiscent of the works of Michael Nyman, with whom The Divine Comedy would later collaborate

The Divine Comedy's second LP Promenade is a masterclass of bookish chamber pop. Using the classical composer Michael Nyman as his primary musical influence, Neil Hannon crafted a beautiful set of songs full of lush strings, twinkling piano and graceful harpsicord. The resulting record sounds not unlike something you'd expect to hear soundtracking a tour of the palace of Versailles. But for sake of sanity, let's not do that. A Seafood Song' is the jauntiest and funniest song on the album. Over a stomping, operatic backing, Hannon tells you how much he loves eating fish and offers his thanks to the ever toiling fisherman ("Let's sing for those in peril on the sea, Who labour tirelessly, In their tiny boats off John-O'Groats, Their socks soaked for me").

The Divine Comedy’s sophomore album Promenade, released in 1994, highlighted a development of Hannon’s songwriting and musical compositon, heavily influenced by Michael Nyman's classical style. This trend seemed to be withering out with the release of the Divine Comedy’s third studio album Casanova released in early 1996
