“A churning, glowering, tumultuous noise…

Hawley makes a masterpiece…5/5” – The Guardian

“…a beautiful storm of brimstone. 8/10” – NME

                      “Hawley’s most compelling work. 4/5” -The Fly

Following the success of his award-winning, critically acclaimed 2009 album Truelove’s Gutter, Richard Hawley will release his seventh studio album, Standing At The Sky’s Edge digitally in the US on June 12th, 2012 with physical release to follow on August 28th.

Recorded in his beloved Sheffield at Yellow Arch Studio in 2011, Standing At The Sky’s Edge marks a seismic shift in direction for Richard. Mirroring the blasted industrial sunsets of Sheffield, Hawley partners his distinctive fluid snarl with blazing electric guitar, spray-painting his audiences senses with a new sound, embracing the ever-changing landscape around him. The overall effect is hypnotic and psychedelic, casting a euphoric stage for Hawley to unleash some of his most tender moments to date.

Exploring lyrical themes of love, loss, redemption and darker areas of the human condition, it is an album of ominous storytelling and cosmic exploration.

Standing At The Sky’s Edge sets the stage to establish Hawley as one of the greatest contemporary guitarists to hail from the UK. Recently he appeared on Jools Holland performing a few tracks including Leave Your Body Behind You.” Mourning the passing of friends and contemplating his place in the universe, Hawley urges us to accept how tiny we are and embrace the time we are given. Hawley says of the song, “If we could just allow ourselves to be liberated by the fact that this is our only time here, we could just get on with what really matters.” Watch the performance here.

Recorded in Sheffield, with inspired involvement from Alan Moulder, Standing At The Sky’s Edge is simultaneously an embrace and a release. Holding you closer than he ever has before, Hawley is bare and unburdened, sharing what is deepest in his heart while electrifying you with a record that conquers the cosmos and takes you on a lavish and exotic ride.

Hawley says of the album, 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!
