Richard Hawley is back at the end of the summer with his fourth solo album and an extensive UK tour.

The singer and guitarist takes time off from his duties in Jarvis Cocker’s band to release “Lady’s Bridge” on the Mute label on August 20. It follows his feted 2005 effort, “Cole’s Corner”, much loved by Uncut.

The album is named after a bridge across the River Don in Hawley’s hometown of Sheffield. “I used to walk across it nearly every day,” says Hawley. “It was a gateway from the poor bit of town to the rich bit.”

Soon after the album’s release, Hawley embarks on a lengthy UK tour. He calls in at:
