WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

After finding success as a member of Britpop band Longpigs in the 1990s, he later joined the band Pulp, led by his friend Jarvis Cocker before going on to release a series of albums as a solo artist.

Recorded at Sheffield's Yellow Arch Studio in spring 2015, Hollow Meadow sees Hawley return to the classic, sophisticated songwriting and subtle arrangements that made him so widely loved and revered in the first place. Meditating on such themes as ageing, fallibility and relationships, much of the album shares a brooding, yet wistful and romantic atmosphere in keeping with early albums Late Night Final and Lowedges, as well as touches of 2009's Truelove's Gutter and Standing At The Sky's Edge.
