Album Review
'It leaves you if you don't use it' – Glen Hansard is singing about the muse on Good Life of Song, the penultimate track on his fourth solo album This Wild Willing. At over seven minutes long, it's a tune you need to invest in, but the rewards are worth it. The lilting lullaby, which rises from a whisper to a scream, is indicative of the album it lives on – it's familiar, yet new. Put it this way, even if you own all of Hansard's records, you haven't heard this one before.
It's not a total departure, the Irishman remains too enthralled with the classicist singer-songwriter stylings of the likes of Van Morrison and Leonard Cohen to move completely away from the troubadour tracks, but he's certainly found a different road out of the country his music usually inhabits. There's electronic textures, lush orchestration from traditional Iranian musicians and the Irish ways and laws of fiddles and flutes we've come to expect on a Glen Hansard record.
