Last week saw Hawley perform an intimate live set at The Grapes in Sheffield to celebrate the release of ‘Now Then…’. The pub is also the same place where the Arctic Monkeys played their first-ever gig as a band.

Back in February, Hawley spoke to NME about his musical Standing At The Sky’s Edge, his upcoming new material and his experiences of working with the Monkeys, Pulp and Self Esteem.

The show “charts the hopes and dreams of three generations over the course of six tumultuous decades”, according to Hawley.

“The great test will be how well it travels,” he told NME. “Like Henderson’s Relish and local beer, it might not make it that far south! I hope it does, and it’s great that The National Theatre have given it the chance.

“There’s always been the drive for me to do it, and it isn’t money or success, but to make sure that those people’s voices are heard. The people that lived on Park Hill were basically forgotten. They were left to rot and then forced out.”

As for the progress on new music, Hawley said at the time that he was “itching” to get back into the studio to work on the follow-up to his 2019 album ‘Further’ this year.

“I’ve got melodies and chords,” he told NME. “I deliberately avoided writing lyrics during lockdown because I didn’t want to write a lockdown record.”

Over the summer, Hawley supported Pulp at their two homecoming arena concerts. He also joined the band on stage to perform collaborative renditions of ‘Common People’ and ‘Sunrise’.
