Exclusive Premiere: Glen Hansard “You Will Become”
Check out Glen Hansard’s first ever solo album, "Rhythm and Repose," out now on Anti- Records.
Glen Hansard has done a lot of incredible things during his long and storied career as a musician. He’s made a name for himself with his work with the influential Irish band The Frames. He’s developed a devoted following with his duo The Swell Season. He even won an Academy Award for his song “Falling Slowly” from the movie “Once.” But the one thing Hansard hasn’t done is release a solo album. Until now.
After twenty years in the business, Hansard finally achieved that goal and released his first solo album, “Rhythm and Repose.” The album is filled with Hansard’s renowned emotive lyrics, there are songs about unrequited love, desperate longing, mistakes made again and again, and the pursuit of happiness. The songs are quiet, but powerful, with Hansard channeling his humble angst through a filter of maturity and well-earned wisdom. While fans of The Frames may find Hansard’s usual intensity muted on his solo work, the album is a solid slow burner.
