Ahead of the release of his eagerly anticipated new album, All That Was East Is West Of Me Now, on October 20, Glen Hansard has offered another insight into the upcoming project, with new single 'There's No Mountain'.
A celebration of perseverance, resilience and hope, the track was released alongside a beautiful accompanying music video.
All That Was East Is West Of Me Now has been described as "equal parts noisy and meditative as well as sprawling and hypnotic" – and was produced by David Odlum, at his home studio on the outskirts of Dublin.
For the majority of the record, the Dublin singer-songwriter was joined in the studio by fellow Frames Joe Doyle, Graham Hopkins, Ruth O’Mahony Brady, Rob Bochnik and honorary Frame Earl Harvin. It also features strings from Gareth Quinn Redmond, Kate Ellis, Paula Hughes, Katie O’Connor and Una O’Kane.
“I’m in the latter third of a good life!” Hansard says of the meaning behind the album’s title. “And my golden prize is a life in song. I haven't gotten lost, I’ve stayed true to my first calling, and I’ve been blessed with life’s deepest riches. So, I might be facing west, or east. But I’m happy in the place I’m in.”
