Richard Hawley has a new album released on September 21st titled Truelove’s Gutter.
It's recorded in Hawley’s hometown of Sheffield at Yellow Arch studios. Arrangements on Truelove’s Gutter occasionally feature some truly uncommon instrumentation, such as the megabass waterphone and crystal baschet. “I use a load of odd sounds on this album that are not heard on many other records,” says Richard. “The sounds in my head on a lot of the tracks - I didn’t even know what they were called!”
Thematically his darkest work to date, Truelove’s Gutter explores the idea of people or things that are broken in some way, and the fractured and damaged times in which we live, to which Hawley’s lyrics give profound attestation.
