Watch Glen Hansard’s new video for “High Hope” from the new album ‘Rhythm and Repose,’ which we reviewed back in July:
Rhythm and Repose is an album of quality and substance. It has a general feeling of serenity which bleeds through the heartfelt story telling. It could be said that it offers few surprises for those familiar with his weighty arsenal of work, but perhaps this serves as the album Glen Hansard envisaged when he first busked on the streets of Dublin some twenty years ago – stripped-back, thoughtful and honest. Newcomers to his work will undoubtedly be inspired to delve into that back-catalogue to discover where this talent was formed.
