Maybe when our hearts have realigned
Maybe when we’ve both had some time
I’m gonna see you there
Glen Hansard just might be the most passionate artist alive, and it’s simply a gift that he also happens to write magical songs. If you’ve seen Hansard perform, whether it be solo, with The Frames, or with The Swell Season, you probably are aware of his solo acoustic rendition of “Say It To Me Now,” which really brings a whole new meaning to the idea of “solo acoustic.” I challenge you to find anything like Glen Hansard performing it.
Hansard’s debut solo album, Rhythm and Repose, is set for release on June 19th. Additionally, he’ll performing at The Pageant in Saint Louis on September 25th (purchase tickets here). Listen to one of his new songs, “High Hope,” which is as wonderful as anything he’s ever done, below.
