Following the success of his award-winning, hugely acclaimed 2009 album ‘Truelove’s Gutter’, Richard Hawley released his seventh studio album, ‘Standing At The Sky’s Edge’ in May.
Recorded at Sheffield’s Yellow Arch Studio in 2011, ‘Standing At The Sky’s Edge’ marks a seismic shift in direction for Hawley. The album is a euphoric, sonic assault on the senses, channelling elements of psychedelia, space rock and ragas with heavy riffs and raw, visceral guitar solos – as well as more familiar, tender moments – which will surprise Hawley’s fans and peers alike.
Exploring lyrical themes of love, loss, redemption and darker areas of the human condition, it’s an album of ominous storytelling and cosmic exploration, sung in Hawley’s rich baritone and soundtracked by an epic musical journey in glorious, menacing Technicolor. In the tradition of Hawley’s previous albums, the title is inspired by an area of Sheffield.
Hawley says of the album, “I wanted to get away from the orchestration of my previous records and make a live album with two guitars, bass, drums and rocket noises!”
Meanwhile, Parlophone just launched the Richard Hawley Singles Club, beginning with a Record Store Day 10” release (April 21st) of his first single from the album, Leave Your Body Behind You, which features bonus track You Haunt Me, available via Independent record shops and from Hawley’s website.
The Singles Club will be a series of 10” singles, b/w exclusive bonus tracks, to be released throughout the next 12 months (more information available soon at:
