GLEN HANSARD’S A SEASON ON THE LINE EP OUT TODAY


VINYL RELEASE SET FOR APRIL 15 IN ANTICIPATION OF RECORD STORE DAY
EUROPEAN TOUR BEGINS TODAY AND MORE DATES
TO BE ADDED SOON
A Season on the Line, the new EP from Glen Hansard, is out today via Anti- Records. The EP follows Hansard’s Grammy-nominated second solo outing Didn’t He Ramble, which was released last fall. During his worldwide tour in support of Didn't He Ramble, two songs continued to appear in his set—“Didn’t He Ramble” and “Way Back in the Way Back When”—though neither were included on the recent album or on any official release. Due to popular demand, Hansard included the two songs on the EP.

Recorded at Chicago’s Electrical Audio Studios on a day off between shows and featuring his touring band, “Didn’t He Ramble” and “Way Back in the Way Back When” bristle with all the energy that made them staples of the live show. A Season on the Line is rounded out by the tracks “Let Me In” and “Return,” both of which are from the intimate recording sessions for Didn’t He Ramble. Listen to the song “Didn’t He Ramble” here.

A Season on the Line will be released on vinyl April 15 in anticipation of Record Store Day. The vinyl will feature all four songs that are on the digital release.

Hansard will continue to tour worldwide in support of the new music with a European tour that kicks off today in Barcelona, Spain. See below for details. In addition, he recently performed on “The Late Late Show with James Corden.”

Hansard is the celebrated principal songwriter and vocalist/guitarist for the influential Irish group The Frames. Whether busking the streets of Dublin, where he got his start, or headlining a gig, Hansard has garnered a reputation as an unparalleled frontman. Hansard is also one half of the acclaimed duo The Swell Season. In 2007, he and Czech songstress Markéta Irglová took home the Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Falling Slowly” off the Once soundtrack. In 2013, the Broadway adaptation, Once, The Musical, won eight Tony Awards including the top musical prize itself. His debut solo album Rhythm & Repose was released in 2012.
