While in town for the Rolling Stone Weekender, Glen talked with Rockpalast and played a new tune that’s been on the live set list lately called “Lowly Deserter” with Curtis. Glen’s played in some unique places like elevators & a sauna, but we think this is the first time in a children’s indoor playground. Click through to watch: Song and Interview.
Glen sings & plays along with Mark Geary and some great Irish musicians on this new version of Mark’s popular holiday song Christmas Biscuits. Engineered by Frames alumnus Karl Odlum, proceeds from this single will be donated to The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, a charitable organization in Ireland with a mission to tackle poverty in all its forms through the provision of practical assistance to those in need.
The song will be available via iTunes on November 29th. UPDATE: You can now order the single via iTunes here or via Amazon here.
This month, Glen will release a 4 song EP featuring Bruce Springsteen’s Drive All Night with some help from Eddie Vedder & Jake Clemons & producer Joe Henry. Vinyl & CD versions will be available on November 25 via Amazon & ANTI- (& Plateau in Ireland) while a digital version of the EP will be available on December 3 via iTunes. You can hear the song now at RollingStone.com.
All profits from the digital single sales of Drive All Night will be donated to Little Kids Rock, the non-profit charity Clarence Clemons donated his energy towards. A portion of the proceeds from the vinyl and cd sales will be donated as well. Little Kids Rock provides music education classes to K-12 students in public schools that have been stripped of their music programs. Click for more…..
