Richard Hawley has announced full details of his new album 'Standing At The Sky's Edge'.

The album, which is Hawley's first for his new label Parlophone, will come out on May 7. It contains a total of nine tracks and is the follow-up to his 2009 effort 'Truelove's Gutter'.

Speaking about the album, Hawley said he wanted to make a simpler record and move away from the grander sounds of his previous albums. He said of the album: "I wanted to get away from the orchestration of my previous records and make a live album with two guitars, bass, drums and rocket noises!"

Richard Hawley, who has indicated he will play a one-off London show to celebrate the album's release, will also headline the brand new No Direction Home Festival this June.

The event, which is the sister festival of End Of The Road Festival, will take place from June 8 – 10 at Welbeck Abbey in Nottinghamshire. Andrew Bird, The Low Anthem, Dirty Three, Gruff Rhys and Slow Club are among the other artists booked to perform at the festival.
