GLEN HANSARD ON LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS TOMORROW (1/18) IN SUPPORT OF NEW ALBUM BETWEEN TWO SHORES AVAILABLE FRIDAY VIA ANTI-

Glen Hansard is set to perform on Late Night With Seth Meyers tomorrow (January 18) to celebrate his new release Between Two Shores, coming out this Friday (January 19) via Anti-. Today, Hansard revealed the official music video for the album’s opening track, “Roll On Slow” with NPR Music who noted, the “gorgeous animated video nicely captures the new song's buoyant swells and notes of alienated longing.”

Hansard described his inspiration to NPR revealing, “‘Roll On Slow’ was written while I was living in a former women’s refuge called the Florence Mission on Bleeker Street in NYC. My girlfriend was away in Europe and I was drinking too much. I was walking home from the Jonathan Swift bar at dawn, which was happening a few too many mornings in a row. The song is simply about missing your girl and being unable to take care of yourself.”

Directed by Piotr Kabat, “The video attempts to bridge the gap between animation and film. While it’s entirely hand-drawn, the organic and grainy look is inspired by classical movies shot on film.” Kabat added, “In terms of story we wanted to convey the vibe of a solo night out in New York. Getting kicked out of bars and hanging out in front of liquor stores ‘til sunrise just to escape from your own demons.”

While visiting New York City, Hansard will also make select appearances in support of his third solo studio album, including two sold-out shows at Town Hall and Brooklyn Steel on January 19th and 21st, respectively.

Town Hall, an intimate solo performance, sold out in less than 24 hours upon its announce, while Hansard will perform with an 11-piece band at Brooklyn Steel. His full US tour begins in March with two LA shows at Disney’s Concert Hall. See all upcoming tour dates here: http://glenhansardmusic.com/tour/
