Mark Lanegan

The Mark Lanegan Band will return this February with their first album since 2004's Bubblegum. The new album, Blues Funeral, comes out in North America on February 7 via 4AD and a day earlier in the UK. The album was recorded with Alain Johannes, who also worked on Bubblegum and features guest appearances from Josh Homme, who he's collaborated with before, Greg Dulli, who he collaborated with in Gutter Twins, and Jack Irons, who drummed in Eleven with Johannes. Check out the album's opening track, "The Gravedigger's Song," along with the album's artwork and tracklist below. You can pre-order the album at the 4AD webstore.

The Mark Lanegan Band is touring the album in Europe from late February to early April, but before they do that, they've got a few North American shows scheduled, including one in NYC on the US album release date, February 7 at Bowery Ballroom with Sean Wheeler and Zander Schloss. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

Screaming Trees = most underrated band ever.

i dunno...the trees' stuff is a bit dated.

lanegan's solo work is extremely underrated.

considering how few comments this has gotten, it goes to show that the avg bv reader has crap taste in music or at least, only likes to hear what is spoonfed and popular.

New song sounds great. And yeah, I prefer Lanegan's solo work and various other projects to Screaming Trees

Mark Lanegan is always great. ALWAYS.

screaming trees were just a prelude to a career as awesome as Tom Waits or Neil Young's.

I always thought Whiskey for the Holy Ghost was one of the best albums ever put out.

The Winding Sheet is killer as well. And Bubblegum is one of the great smacked-out albums of all time. You can't go wrong with Lanegan....

'Skeletal History' still one of the most haunting, fucking intense songs ever.
