Acclaimed singer-songwriter Glen Hansard performed "Lowly Deserter" last Friday night on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert." The song is taken from Hansard's latest album "Didn't He Ramble", out now via Anti- Records. Watch the appearance below and check out the official video for "Lowly Deserter" here.

Hansard will support the new album on tour throughout North American this fall. The tour kicks off tonight at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and include stops at the Chicago Theatre in Chicago, the new Kings Theatre in Brooklyn and the Beacon Theater in New York City. See details below.

Didn't He Ramble was produced by Thomas Bartlett (The National, Sufjan Stevens), a frequent collaborator of Hansard's, and Grammy winner and former Frames band-mate David Odlum (Paloma Faith, Tinariwen). The album was recorded in New York, Dublin, Chicago and France and features guest appearances by John Sheahan (Dubliners), Sam Beam (Iron and Wine) and Sam Amidon.

Hansard is the celebrated principal songwriter and vocalist/guitarist for the influential Irish group The Frames. Whether busking the streets of Dublin, where he got his start, or headlining a gig, Hansard has garnered a reputation as an unparalleled frontman. Hansard is also one half of the acclaimed duo The Swell Season. In 2007, he and Czech songstress Markéta Irglová took home the Academy Award for Best Original Song for "Falling Slowly" off the Once soundtrack. In 2013, the Broadway adaptation, Once, The Musical, won eight TONY AWARDS including the top musical prize itself. His debut solo album Rhythm & Repose was released in 2012.
