We talk to author and journalist George Monbiot and Scottish guitarist and balladeer Ewan McLennan about their album Breaking the Spell of Loneliness. “To this day song can and does continue to speak about the world around us, to document the undocumented, and to rail against the injustices of our time.”

The eloquence of both George Monbiot and Ewan McLennan in raising these issues says far more than any music critic can. Breaking the Spell of Loneliness doesn’t merely tackle the issues raised, it offers solutions, it offers hope. It’s a moving, thought-provoking work that has relevance for all of us.
Ewan McLennan & George Monbiot have shared a new video in which they preview and explain how their new album ‘Breaking the Spell of Loneliness’ came about and how that relationship works in turning words into ballads and anthems.
We have a special video session from Ewan McLennan which commemorates the 80th anniversary of the start of the Spanish Civil War today. We also have news of his new album with Guardian journalist and bestselling author George Monbiot.
