Video of the Moment #1909: Richard Hawley

To celebrate the release of his latest album ‘Hollow Meadows’ this week on Parlophone Records, Sheffield guitar troubadour Richard Hawley has a new video out for ‘Nothing Like a Friend’, a track from the new album. (Read my full review of the LP’s loveliness here.)

Just like on the album’s cover, the video takes the theme of a broken window and literally, as you watch the countryside through this cracked glass. Hawley has said that the songs of ‘Hollow Meadows’ have been coloured by him looking at the world with different eyes and a different point of view, after being forced to rest and recuperate after recent leg and back injuries made him bedridden, so it’s interesting to watch this promo as what you’re seeing isn’t entirely what you expect or as they seem. What an original concept. Watch the video below.

‘Hollow Meadows’ is out today on Parlophone. Past coverage of Richard Hawley on TGTF is this way.
