Mark Lanegan shares new song ‘Deepest Shade’

MARK LANEGAN shares new song 'Deepest Shade', taken from his new album Imitations, out 16th September via Heavenly Recordings

With the release of his upcoming covers album Imitations drawing ever closer, MARK LANEGAN has unveiled a second song from the album, in the form of ‘Deepest Shade’, a cover of Greg Dulli’s the Twilight Singers. Listen above…

Lanegan is also coming over to the UK and Ireland in November for a special all-seated acoustic tour, along with DUKE GARWOOD, with whom Mark recorded the recent  collaboration Black Pudding. Dates are as follows:

“When I was a kid in the late sixties and early seventies, my parents and their friends would play the records of Andy Williams, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Perry Como, music with string arrangements and men singing songs that sounded sad whether they were or not. At home my folks were also listening to country music – Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, George Jones and Vern Gosdin were some of our favourites. For a long time I’ve wanted to make a record that gave me the same feeling those old records did, using some of the same tunes I loved as a kid and some that I’ve loved as I have gotten older. This record is it. Imitations.”

Imitations will be released 16th September via Heavenly Recordings.
