Hansard sang the song "Take the Heartland" on the soundtrack for the 2012 film The Hunger Games.

Another song he wrote, "Come Away to the Water", is also featured on the soundtrack, but is covered by Maroon 5 and Rozzi Crane.

He has often stated that he regretted taking the role, because he felt it distracted him from his music career.

Hansard and The Frames toured as the support act for Bob Dylan in Australia and New Zealand in August 2007 and Hansard often performs Van Morrison's songs in concert.

He formed his own band The Frames in 1990, and the group have been gigging regularly in Ireland since.

Hansard came to international attention as guitar player Outspan Foster in the 1991 Alan Parker film The Commitments, after attending the New York Film Academy School of Acting.

The film had its American premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in 2007 and received the Festival's World Cinema Audience Award.

During the promotional tour, he and Irglová began dating.

Songs that he has recorded include Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me a River" on Even Better than the Real Thing Vol. A new album of original songs recorded as The Swell Season with Markéta Irglová and entitled Strict Joy was released on 27 October 2009 on the ANTI- record label.
