I was determined to make something positive for myself. I didn’t want to be sat in a studio recording dirges, as they suck the life out of me at the moment. I know it sounds cheesy, but if you’ve got a light in your heart, it’s easy to be positive

Richard Hawley has turned 50 since his previous album, and he celebrates his 20th anniversary as a solo artist this year. Hawley may not be fussed by milestones, but his brilliant new album Further feels like a fresh start. He tells John Earls how dog walking, shunning social media and the brevity of the 7" have contributed to his sharpest work yet
Hawley wanted to challenge himself to keep things up-tempo on the new album by limiting the songs to close to the three-minute mark

When Richard Hawley co-produced Duane Eddy’s 2011 album Road Trip, he also played guitar on the rock ’n’ roll great’s tour. Backstage at the 100 Club, Eddy told Hawley of how he and Willie Nelson had recently been talking about old times. “Getting old is really crappy, isn’t it?” Nelson opined. To which Eddy replied: “Don’t worry, Willie. It won’t last long.” Hawley explodes into a delighted, high laugh after the punchline. “Now, that is dark as fuck,” he admits. “But it’s so beautifully wise.”

Sat in a high-end London oice at Hawley’s new record label BMG, overlooking a canal, the singer looks in excellent nick. We’re in A&R director Jamie Nelson’s oice because it has a balcony, and Hawley needs a cigarette outside to start the interview in order to calm down: he’s 75 minutes late, thanks to bad traic. he resultant stress means he also nurses a pint, as he wryly admits: “Getting someone to fetch me a beer is the one time I’ll act the pop star. But I’ve been up since 5am, and it’s another couple of hours before I can drive back up to the beautiful north.”
