the 4th & final single from Hawley’s remarkable 7th album, 'Standing At The Sky’s Edge' - One of the more reflective tracks from the album, 'Don’t Stare At The Sun' is a keynote performance suffused with a sense of cosmic serenity.

It covers a huge distance: a meditation that took inspiration from – on one hand – a woozy morning shared by young son & sleep-deprived father flying a kite in the park & – on the other – the fate that met Isaac Newton when he decided to stare into the sun. “He burnt the retinas in his eyes,” explains Hawley, “so that, from that moment on, everything he saw was gold.”
