Heavenly Recordings have announced that MARK LANEGAN will be releasing his new covers album Imitations on 16th September 2013. Today fans can listen to a track from the album, Mark’s take on “I’m Not The Loving Kind”
Lanegan made the following comments on the new album:
“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.”
The twelve-track album was recorded earlier this year and follows his early 2012 release ‘Blues Funeral’ and ‘Black Pudding’, his recent collaboration with Duke Garwood.
