Oscar winning singer/song-writer Glen Hansard delivers an over-mellow solo debut that doesn’t seem to know what it wants to be when it grows up.
Technically, this EP entitled The Wanted is the group’s third release. Their two previous albums, The Wanted and Battleground were received well across Europe, but failed to get the boys noticed in America. Now, all that has changed with the release of mega-singles like “Glad You Came” and “Chasing The Sun.”
