On June 8th 2010, Richard Hawley releases a new EP False Lights From The Land on Mute. Comprised of four songs inspired by the ocean (a familiar theme in Hawley's songwriting), the EP will be available as a digital download.

Inspired by Richard Hawley's recent BBC Radio 2 series The Ocean (wherein he explored how the sea, seafaring culture and sea travel has shaped the music, art and literature of The British Isles), False Lights From The Land features two original Hawley compositions: the lead song, Remorse Code (taken from his critically acclaimed album Truelove's Gutter) and a previously unreleased song, The Storm.

Additionally, the EP offers two cover tunes: a haunting rendition of The Ellan Vannin Tragedy (written by Hughie Jones of English folk legends The Spinners), which tells the tale of a ship that sank in stormy weather off Liverpool Bay in 1909 killing all 36 aboard; and an a cappella performance of Shallow Brown, a pumping shanty of West Indian origin. Both covers feature guest vocal accompaniment by Smoke Fairies.

Truelove's Gutter, "adored by an ever growing number of people", as acknowledged in the NME, continues to find new admirers in the United States as well in Europe, where Hawley has recently completed a sold out tour.

Richard will be appearing at the UK's Latitude Festival (www.latitudefestival.co.uk) on July 16th 2010.
