A SEASON ON THE LINE, the new EP from Glen Hansard, will be available February 19 via Anti Records. The EP follows Hansard’s Grammy-nominated (Best Folk Album) second solo outing DIDN’T HE RAMBLE, which was released last year.
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 for DIDN’T HE RAMBLE.
