Richard Hawley Presents Truelove's Gutter

(Mute) Richard Hawley's sixth studio album, "Truelove's Gutter," will be released on Mute September 22, 2009. A digital multi-track single "For Your Lover Give Some Time" is out September 8, 2009 and features the exclusive B-side "Sorry I lost My Way" and an instrumental version of "Born Under A Bad Sign" (originally released on Hawley's 2005 album "Coles Corner").

"For Your Lover Give Some Time," a bittersweet vignette depicting internal tensions in a perennial love affair, has Richard singing a confessional lyric over a light-footed arrangement of cello and violin. It is easily the most humorous track on the album, with a hint of the biting Gallic sarcasm of a Brel or Gainsbourg.
Richard explains, "I think this is a fairly honest and slightly wry look at lovers, as time goes by, especially long term relationships. It's a warning not to take things for granted now and again you should buy a bunch of flowers randomly."

Arrangements on "Truelove's Gutter" occasionally feature some truly uncommon instrumentation, such as the megabass waterphone and crystal baschet. Eccentric instruments notwithstanding, the lush but minimal production provides a haunting backdrop to Hawley's unique voice and allows him plenty of space for some outstandingly beautiful guitar solos.

Thematically his darkest work to date, "Truelove's Gutter" explores the idea of people or things that are broken in some way, and the fractured and damaged times in which we live, to which Hawley's lyrics profoundly attest.
Recorded in Hawley's hometown of Sheffield at Yellow Arch Studios, "Truelove's Gutter" is a testament to his intoxicating songwriting talents with eight new classic compositions.
