Plus, a new musical is in the works...

Sheffield's own Richard Hawley is set to release new album 'Further' later this year.

The songwriter's eighth studio album is a break with the past, his first for BMG and his first not to be named after a Sheffield landmark.

Still largely constructed in the Steel City, Richard Hawley was aided by co-producers Colin Elliot and Shez Sheridan.

“I really wanted to challenge myself to try to keep things relatively up-tempo and keep the songs to about three minutes long,” Hawley says openly, “I was asking myself ‘Can you get your message across like a bullet? Can you still do that?’ It’s quite a tough question to ask.”

The songwriter is on crunching form with new single 'Off My Mind', a biting new offering that represents the first blast from his new album.

Tune in below.

Off My Mind
