Glen Hansard has announced he will be releasing his second solo album ‘Didn’t He Ramble’ on Anti- Records on the 18th of September, so tonight we have for you a teaser from the Irishman’s forthcoming release. Premiering yesterday as an NPR First Watch, ‘Winning Streak’ is described by director Braden King:

Glen and I talked a lot about the way in which every life is a fight, a struggle. No matter who you are. No matter what you do. They’re all different and they all never end. For me, the song is about that struggle we all face in our own ways and about who has your back along the way. There is no end to it. We may get momentary rests along the way but they are fleeting. We all have to get up again and get back into the ring. And you know, sometimes, those who are the hardest on us are the ones who get us through. The way this turned out, the song kind of became the spirit of this place, the blood running through all these boxers veins. And I love the way in which Glen haunts and inspires it all.

Glen Hansard’s one announced tour date for the autumn is for the 21st of October at London Shepherds Bush Empire, which is currently the end of his European tour that kicks off the 29th of September at Paris La Cigale. Watch the video for ‘Winning Streak’ below.
