GLEN HANSARD’S DIDN’T HE RAMBLE OUT TODAY

PERFORMING ON “CBS THIS MORNING—SATURDAY”

BEHIND THE SCENES VIDEO PREMIERES AT THE A.V. CLUB

U.S. TOUR KICKS OFF IN NOVEMBER

Didn’t He Ramble, the second solo outing from acclaimed Irish singer-songwriter Glen Hansard, is out today via Anti- Records. To celebrate the release, Hansard will perform on “CBS This Morning—Saturday” tomorrow, September 19.

In addition, a behind the scenes video featuring the song “Her Mercy” is premiering at The A.V. Club. Much of the clip was filmed in Chicago at Wilco’s Studio The Loft, where the first recording session of Didn’t He Ramble was held. Director Myles O’Reilly was on hand to capture the energy in the room. Watch/share the video here: [AV Club].

Didn’t He Ramble continues to receive critical acclaim:

“The central ingredient remains Hansard’s worn but wonderfully flexible voice, which sounds as kind and expressive as ever, with warmth to match the songs he sings.”—NPR Music

“Didn’t He Ramble evokes a feeling similar to one of Van Morrison’s Celtic-soul fever dreams, burnishing the prevailing sense of romantic fatalism with some low-key bravado on the standout track ‘Winning Streak’ (a kissing cousin to Bob Dylan’s early-Seventies’ chestnut ‘Forever Young’).”—Rolling Stone

“Every note and syllable on Didn’t He Ramble is inked with Hansard’s unique musical identity, evidence that the more musical references he accesses, the more he emerges sounding exactly like the folk-and-beyond genius he has presented for the past two and a half decades.”—Magnet

“No matter how you know him, Hansard sings to you like you’re worth knowing.”—American Songwriter

In addition, the video for “Lowly Deserter” recently premiered at the Wall Street Journal and can be streamed/shared here: https://youtu.be/mPliDNX5Zmg. The video for lead single “Winning Streak” can also be streamed/shared here: https://youtu.be/iu0s3qwFPc0.

Hansard will embark on a North American tour this fall including stops at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Chicago Theatre in Chicago, the new Kings Theatre in Brooklyn and the Beacon Theater in New York City.

Didn’t He Ramble was produced by Thomas Bartlett (The National, Sufjan Stevens), a frequent collaborator of Hansard’s, and Grammy winner and former Frames band-mate David Odlum (Paloma Faith, Tinariwen). The album, which was recorded in New York, Dublin, Chicago and France, is Hansard’s most intimate and elegant record since his work in Once and features guest appearances by John Sheahan (Dubliners), Sam Beam (Iron and Wine) and Sam Amidon.

Glen 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.
