DIDN’T HE RAMBLE NOMINATED FOR BEST FOLK ALBUM AT 2016 GRAMMY AWARDS

Glen Hansard A Season on the Line

A Season on the Line, the new EP from Glen Hansard, will be availableFebruary 19. The album follows Hansard’s Grammy-nominated (Best Folk Album) 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. This is all part of Hansard’s creative process—honing songs in a live setting. Due to popular demand, Hansard included the two songs on the new 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 forDidn’t He Ramble.

Listen to “Didn’t He Ramble”:

Hansard will continue to tour worldwide in support of the new music, including European dates next month. See below for details.
