Listen to Glen Hansard's New Song, "Wreckless Heart"

In his new song “Wreckless Heart,” Irish folk singer-songwriter Glen Hansard resolves that the only way out is through, at least where a breakup is concerned. “Gonna ride that river / to the sea,” he sings earnestly above sweetly strummed guitar strings. The song as a whole creates the feeling of an ocean, the inner ebbs of heartache.

Hansard’s third solo album, Between Two Shores, arrives Jan. 18 via ANTI-Records. It’s the first we’ve seen from him since 2015’s Grammy-nominated Didn’t He Ramble, and it promises to be just as easy listening and rich with wisdom. The lead single “Time Will Be the Healer” came out in September—it’s soul folk with R&B sprinkled in. It’s a love song, but it’s also, as Consequence of Sound noted, “speak[ing] to the way forward in the current social climate.” Other advance tracks include “Setting Forth” and “Wheels on Fire.”
