New Richard Hawley Video – “For Your Lover, Give Some Time”

Richard Hawley’s a suave performer and the performance video for “For Your Lover, Give Some Time” wisely goes that route: It’s shot in shadowy black and white, Hawley smoking the cigarettes he’s willing to give up, strumming a guitar, looking at his prized Chuck Berry photo, and saying he’ll get your name tattooed in a rose across his chest. The song comes from Hawley’s sixth, especially downcast album Truelove’s Gutter. As far as giving your lover time, the collection features the amazing 10-minute “Remorse Code” and an even more extended closer, “Don’t You Cry.” True to his word.

Truelove’s Gutter is out 9/22 via Mute.
