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 2012.
Recorded at Sheffield’s Yellow Arch Studio in 2011, ‘Standing At The Sky’s Edge’ marks a seismic shift in direction for Richard Hawley. This Richard Hawley 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 surprised Richard 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 Richard Hawley’s rich baritone and soundtracked by an epic musical journey in glorious, menacing Technicolor. In the tradition of Richard Hawley’s previous studio albums, the title is inspired by an area of Sheffield.
Speaking about the new album, Richard Hawley stated: “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!”
