Drive All Night, the latest recording from Glen Hansard, will be released November 29 on Plateau (Anti- Records for the US). Following the release of his first solo album, Rhythm and Repose, the four-song EP includes three original tracks and a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s classic song Drive All Night.
The EP is available for pre-order here: https://itunes.apple.com/ie/album/drive-all-night-ep/id729159297?uo=4 // http://amzn.to/1hA60Z3
All profits from the digital sales of Drive All Night will be donated to Little Kids Rock, the non-profit charity Clarence Clemons donated his energy towards. Little Kids Rock provides music education classes to K-12 students in public schools that have been stripped of their music programs. Learn more at www.littlekidsrock.org.
While the bones of the release date back to sessions for Rhythm and Repose, the recording of Drive All Night was largely inspired by Glen’s relationship with Jake Clemons, nephew of Clarence Clemons aka “The Big Man,” a prominent member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. And of course, Glen joined Bruce for a rendition of the song in Kilkenny over the summer.
Glen is currently on tour in Europe, but returns home for two shows later this month >>
