Glen Hansard A Season On The Line EP on LP + Download
A Season on the Line, is the new four-track EP from Glen Hansard, the celebrated principal songwriter and vocalist/guitarist for the influential Irish group The Frames and one-half of the folk duo The Swell Season. The EP follows Hansard's Grammy-nominated (Best Folk Album) second solo outing Didn't He Ramble (2015).
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 A Season On The Line.
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.
