Through his website, Mark Lanegan recently announced the release of Gargoyle, the new album he recorded together with his fellow musicians of the Mark Lanegan Band. The 10-track LP will be out on 28th April 2017 and features guest appearances from long-time collaborators such as Josh Homme (ex-Kyuss and leader of the Queens of the Stone Age), Greg Dulli and Duke Garwood.
Gargoyle will be the tenth studion album of the prolific American musician, who started writing and singing music since the early 80’s with the Screaming Trees.
Lead track Nocturne is currently premiering on a few music service and can be heard also on Youtube. From a musical point of view, this song seems to show a minor deviation from the synthetic sounds of the previous work, Phantom Radio. Lanegan’s voice is always superb and in this case definitely reminiscent of Leonard Cohen.
