Tickets for Glen Hansard‘s just announced June 28 show at Le Poisson Rouge go on sale on Friday, June 15 (today) at noon. But that’s not the only show Glen will be playing on June 28, if you’re in the Union Square area, you can catch him for free at the Barnes & Noble flagship at 7PM. Of course, it’s not all just CD signings and club shows, Glen will also be playing for the masses at the Beacon Theatre on Friday, June 29, (I’m assuming tickets to that show are long sold out.) Last but not least, in case you forgot, Glen’s new solo record, Rhythm & Repose, will be released on June 19 on Anti Records. For those of you who can’t wait until then, you can stream it right now via NPR’s First Listen Series.

Watch a video for the new song “Philander” after the jump.

PS According to Billboard, The Frames, Hansard’s longtime band, will be accompanying him on his upcoming solo tour. The article doesn’t get into any details about a new Frames album, but Hansard is quoted as saying, “I’ve got to go back and make a record with those guys.”
