Glen Hansard, Irish songwriter and one half of The Swell Season, is set to release a new Ep Drive All Night. The four-track Ep will feature three new songs from Hansard as well as the Springsteen cover/title track. For “Drive All Night,” Hansard enlisted the help of Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, Joe Henry and Jake Clemons (of the E Street Band). »
Oscar-winning Irish folk musician Glen Hansard on Monday evening returned to Chicago's Millennium Park -- where he last played a show in support of Low two years ago.
Amid the foggy evening at the park's Jay Pritzker Pavilion stage, Hansard -- who leads The Frames and is one half of The Swell Season -- played songs off both last year's debut solo record "Rhythm and Repose" and was also joined on stage by Lisa Hannigan, a former member of fellow Irishman Damien Rice's band.
Hansard is a regular performer in Chicago, most recently at the Hideout Block Party last fall, and previously told HuffPost he sees the Windy City as "a city where people are quietly getting on with their work. I have always found it hugely inspiring."

Owls of the Swamp, the musical moniker of Australian multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Pete Uhlenbruch, continues to reach the ever-growing expectation for earnest vocals, adept guitar-picking and vivid storytelling with latest single “The Hypnotist.” The song, which features background vocals from The Swell Season’s Marketa Irglova, illustrates the tale of a hypnotist and his relationship with a long-lost lover. The single marks Uhlenbruch’s first since 2011’s Go With River, and fans will hope it is a sign of more content to come. Check out “The Hypnotist” in the player below.
