You can now hear and buy the first song from MEAT. Stream it here and/or check it out on iTunes. Here’s what Hawksley says about the track:

“We’ll Make Time (Even When There Ain’t No Time)” started as a song written for a charity affiliated with Cartier out of France. I went to Guitar Centre on Sunset (as I often do when I land in LA) and bought the cheapest Spanish guitar they had…it also happened to be a very sexy, shiny black Spanish guitar. When I delivered the tune to Cartier, they said they didn’t think it was appropriate. I was so glad, because I got it back for my own record. It was written in my friend Clif Norrell’s garage studio in Malibu. We recorded the drums in his living room which has the most splendid view of the Pacific. It was a real eye opener watching the steady flow of container ships coming in full of stuff from China and South East Asia. I’m finding that my dedicated absorption of rap music is starting to find its way into my writing, you can hear it in the staccato melody here…this is an honest little song about relationships being a venue for pain and growth.

For Him And The Girls

On November 17, Isadora Records will release Hawksley Workman’s debut album For Him And The Girls in the US for the very first time. Originally released in 1999, the album was written, produced and performed by Hawksley himself, and bursts with beauty and energy.

Two New Albums & National Canadian Tour

Hawksley Workman Announces Two New Albums & National Canadian Tour

2010 is going to be an exciting year for Hawksley Workman, as he adds fresh material from not one but two new albums to his live repertoire for his biggest national Canadian tour to date. From the compelling opening yodel found on his debut album, For Him and the Girls, to this very day, Hawksley Workman has refused to mark just one territory on Canada’s musical landscape. Hawksley roams like a rogue force: unpredictable, dramatic, exuberant, and focused on the pursuit of a sound that is never static, but always highly identifiable. Two new albums, numbering eleven and twelve in the Hawksley Workman catalogue, mark new terrain for this moving musical target. Entitled Meat and Milk respectively, the music traverses in great leaps and bounds the stylistic differences between tracks, while always keeping one foot firmly planted in Hawksley Workman territory. The albums take you from bright, dance pop extravaganzas to dark, warring times where the battle is long over only the repeated and brutal refrain of heartbreak and defeat remains. Hawksley writes songs that have staying power, and now 12 albums into a career that has taken him from indie to major and back again, he is ready for another round. Meat hits the streets on January 19, 2010, while the songs from Milk will be released via a non-traditional digital strategy which will unleash singles from the album over a five-month period.

Hawksley will be touring across the country in support of the release, going to theatres never visited before as well as coming back to now-favourite venues such as Toronto’s Massey Hall.
