“Glen Hansard is a gifted, emotive frontman who sings as if he must, with a heart on his sleeve that is constantly throbbing.”—The New York Times

Drive All Night, the latest recording from acclaimed singer-songwriter Glen Hansard, will be released December 3 on Anti- Records. The title track premiered today at Rolling Stone: http://rol.st/1hI1bgf. Following the release of his first ever 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” featuring Hansard’s friends and fellow musicians Eddie Vedder, Jake Clemons and Joe Henry.The album is available for pre-order here: http://amzn.to/1hA60Z3

While the bones of the release date back to sessions for Rhythm and Repose, the recording of “Drive All Night” was largely inspired by Hansard’s relationship with Jake Clemons, nephew of Clarence Clemons aka “The Big Man,” who was a prominent member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band playing the tenor saxophone.

All profits from the digital single 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

Hansard is celebrated as the principal songwriter and vocalist/guitarist for the group The Frames, one of the most influential bands in Ireland. Known for his dedicated following and grounded, real-life songs, Hansard garnered a reputation as an unparalleled front man. In 2007, he and Czech songstress Markéta Irglová took home the Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Falling Slowly” from the Once soundtrack. Hansard and Irglová continued the success of Once with the 2009 release Strict Joy under the namesake of The Swell Season.
