Glen Hansard Announces New Album
Marking his third solo album, singer-songwriter Glen Hansard will release Between Two Shores on January 19, 2018 via Anti-. Following up 2015’s GRAMMY nominated Didn’t He Ramble, and his 2012 solo debut Rhythm and Repose, the ten-track collection was produced by Hansard himself for the first time. A culmination of more than six years of writing and recording, Between Two Shores came together in only a matter of weeks.
The Irish Singer-songwriter is a firm favourite of #DrunkOnMusic. Upon introduction to 2007 film ONCE, I fell immediately in love with this quaint folky original OST, written by Hansard and pianist Marketa Irglova.
The song “Falling Slowly” from the film was awarded the Academy Award for Best Original song. In 2013 the film was adapted for Broadway as ‘Once, The Musical’, winning eight Tony Awards including the top musical prize itself and an Olivier award in London for outstanding achievement in music.
We could run out of superlatives when describing Hansard, and the announcement of a new album and tour is delightful news. The debut single from ‘Between Two Shores’ is ‘Time Will Be The Healer’
Glen Hansard is also a founding member of The Frames who celebrated 25 years together in 2015.
