British singer-songwriter Richard Hawley shares new single ‘Off My Mind’, taken from his forthcoming eighth solo studio album.
2019 is set to be a landmark year for the former Longpigs and Pulp guitarist. Not only is he due to release Further on June 7, but a musical based on a collection of his songs opens in his hometown of Sheffield.
There’s also the small matter of the man celebrating his 20th anniversary as a solo artist.

Further marks a departure for Hawley who has, to date, named all his albums after Sheffield icons or landmarks. For his new album he wanted something that would capture the intention of moving forwards, but without jettisoning his past.
Optimism lies at the heart of Further, an album that was made largely in Sheffield with Hawley and his band, aided by co-producers Colin Elliot and Shez Sheridan.
