GLEN HANSARD’S FIRST SOLO ALBUM RHYTHM AND REPOSE SET FOR JUNE 19 RELEASE

Over 20 years in the making, Anti- Records will release Glen Hansard’s first ever solo album, Rhythm and Repose on June 19. Best known for his work with The Frames, The Swell Season and in the movie Once, Rhythm and Repose is Hansard’s first album of new material since his 2009 release Strict Joy with The Swell Season. The album is available for presale at http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?id=517429344 and currently streaming on NPR.org: [link]. Hansard will perform on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” tonight and will continue to support the new record with a U.S. tour this fall. See reverse for details.
The highly lauded play Once, The Musical won eight Tony Awards including best direction of a musical, best lead actor in a musical and the top musical prize itself. Once, The Musical is based on the feature film Once, with original songs written by Hansard including “Falling Slowly” for which he won an Academy Award. The play successfully opened on Broadway on March 18 to rave reviews including the New York Times who explains, “what was always wonderful about ‘Once,’ its songs and its staging, has been magnified.”
Hansard is celebrated as the principal songwriter and vocalist/guitarist for the Irish group The Frames, who have established themselves as one of the most influential bands in Ireland. Hansard garnered a reputation as not only an unparalleled front man, but also for his dedicated following and his grounded, real-life songs. 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. Hansard and Irglová continued the success of Once with the 2009 release Strict Joy under the namesake of The Swell Season.
