Richard Hawley Hollow Meadows

Richard Hawley released his eighth album, Hollow Meadows, today (9/11) via Parlophone in the UK. It’s his first album in three years (2012’s Standing at Sky’s Edge was his last) and he’s not messing with his sound one bit here: a little Duane Eddy twang, some ’50s glamour and “King of the Road” shabby chic, and a dab of Brylcreem. As always, at the center is Hawley’s warm, smoky voice. It’s good to hear it again. Pure class. You can stream the album via Rdio and watch the video for “Heart Of Oak” below.

Guests on the LP include his old Sheffield friend and Pulp bandmate Jarvis Cocker who plays Rheem Kee bass on “Nothing Like A Friend'” and Slow Club’s Rebecca Taylor.
