The Very Best Of’ compilation


Richard Hawley has announced plans for a collection of his greatest hits and deep cuts.

‘Now Then: The Very Best Of Richard Hawley’ is the Sheffield singer-songwriter’s first compilation featuring 36 songs from across his entire back catalogue along with a re-recording of ‘Not The Only Road’ (originally titled ‘The Only Road’ from his 2003 album ‘Lowedges’), which he recently re-recorded for The Full Monty TV series, which you can listen to below.

It also includes his 2019 cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Ballad Of A Thin Man’ which was recorded for the finale of season five of Peaky Blinders.

The collection will be released on October 20 as a 2CD set, a 2LP colour vinyl collection housed in a gatefold sleeve, digital download and on streaming platforms. You can pre-order/pre-save it here.

Curated by Hawley and long-term collaborator Colin Elliot, the collection spans cuts from 2001 mini-album ‘Richard Hawley’, his official debut ‘Late Night Final’ (2001), ‘Lowedges’ (2003), ‘Coles Corner’ (2005), ‘Lady’s Bridge’ (2007), ‘Truelove’s Gutter’ (2009), ‘Standing At The Sky’s Edge’ (2012), ‘Hollow Meadows’ (2015) and his 2019 album ‘Further’.
