Richard Hawley - Standing At The Sky's Edge
Ltd Coloured vinyl
Following the success of his award-winning, hugely acclaimed 2009 album Truelove's Gutter, Richard Hawley releases his sixth studio album, Standing at the Sky's Edge. This LP marks a seismic shift in direction for Hawley. The album is a euphoric, sonic assault on the senses, channeling 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 technicolour. In the tradition of Hawley's previous albums, the title is inspired by an area of Sheffield.
