Glen Hansard & M. Irglova – Christmas Version


Hansard sings on “In These Arms,” “Maybe I was born to hold you in these arms,” and there’s every part of him that believes in that – in the idyllic version of love conquering over all. But then there is a time during the beautiful folk of “Star Star,” a special version of which here has Irglova inserting a stunning piece of “Oh, Holy Night” when Hansard sings that “time is the enemy” and “time is the guise,” at once suggesting that time could both ruin and it could be exactly what retains the bonds of a love. Divine nights and divine days, can turn and oftentimes do. It’s where the Swell Season’s most pointed worries are rooted, but even so, love is attempted and love is sought, as slippery as it may be.
