Twice: Swell Season Returns With 'Joy'

Swell Season, the Oscar-winning duo of Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, have picked September 29 to release their follow-up to the hit soundtrack from the film Once. Producer Peter Katis (The National, Interpol) worked with the band on the new set, entitled Strict Joy. Over at Billboard, you can get more details on the anticipated new album.
