Glen Hansard, the Swell Season/Frames/Once singer/songwriter, has announced a tribute EP on which he’ll perform songs written by his late friend Jason Molina. It Was Triumph We Once Proposed…Songs of Jason Molina is out March 17 on Overcoat Recordings. All profits will be donated to charity in Molina’s honor. Listen to Hansard’s version of Songs: Ohia’s “Being in Love” above. “Jason Molina was a hero and a friend,” wrote Hansard in a statement. “I wrote him my first fan letter, I always loved his music and singing these songs is the only way to make sense of losing him.” In 2000, Songs: Ohia and Hansard released a split 7″. The EP features Jeff Panall, Jennie Benford, Dan Sullivan, and Rob Sullivan, who played on Songs: Ohia records (including Didn’t It Rain and Magnolia Electric Co.). Hansard has also announced a series of North American tour dates…

jmAn Afterword: Remembering the late Midwestern singer/songwriter and leader of Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co., who passed away March 2013 at age 39… Molina leaves behind a sprawling and unruly catalog that spans nearly 20 years. During that time, he recorded under both the Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co. aliases as well as under his own name. He collaborated frequently and adventurously, releasing joint efforts with Scout Niblett, Oneida, and Glen Hansard, among many others. http://pitchfork.com/features/afterword/9087-jason-molina/
