Not content with having Glen Hansard on the cover of the new Hot Press, we’re delighted to bring you a stream of his debut solo album, Rhythm And Repose, which we think you’ll agree is an absolute pearler. Listen and fall in love!
While not a concept album per se, Rhythm And Repose does carry a message for not just us Irish, but everybody whose lives have become a bit too digital.
“Things like Twitter and Facebook have made us so docile,” Glen explains. “Our imaginations are being crushed. We need to leave our iPhones at home and just take in what’s around us. That’s what the title Rhythm And Repose means – stop living your life virtually and get out there.”
We also thought you might like to peruse this video session he recorded recently in the US of A.
Rhythm And Repose is out here on Friday and will also be getting a live airing at the Electric Picnic. There’s also talk of solo shows, so stay tuned to hotpress.com for updates!
