Former Longpig and noted solo songwriter Richard Hawley has announced that he will release his eighth studio album this September
hree years on from the release of his UK Top 3 album Standing At The Sky’s Edge, Richard Hawley has announced that he will release his eighth studio album this September.
Entitled Hollow Meadows and to be released via Parlophone Records, the record includes some highly regarded contributors, with Nancy Kerr playing the fiddle and viola on three songs and Martin Simpson adding slide guitar and banjo on one. Elsewhere, Jarvis Cocker pops up on the bass and Slow Club’s Rebecca Taylor adds her vocal talents to one of the album’s tracks.

The track listing for Hollow Meadows is as follows:
I Still Want You
The World Looks Down
Serenade Of Blue
Long Time Down
Nothing Like A Friend
Sometimes I Feel
Welcome The Sun
Heart Of Oak
What Love Means
For those of you who just can’t wait until September to hear what Hollow Meadows will sound like, fear not. Hawley has released the video for Which Way, which you can catch below.
