new Scott Walker album coming (preview it now)
We were excited to fhear that Scott Walker is releasing a new album called “Bish Bosch” this December. More info and a video trailer below…
In addition to an extensive essay about the forthcoming album from The Wire’s Rob Young, this four minute trailer for the album is now also housed on the site. The directors Iain & Jane were granted rare access to the studio to capture Scott, his co-producer Peter Walsh and some of the musicians involved in the making of the record. With this footage, they have helped to create a unique film that uses extracts from tracks “See You Don’t Bump His Head”, “Tar”, “Dimple”, “Corps De Blah”, “Phrasing” and “Epizootics!” to offer a tantalizing insight to this much-anticipated album. Also included in this short film are glimpses of Scott working with painter Ben Farquharson and designer Philip Laslett in the creation of the album’s artwork.
Expect more to be added to the mini-site in the build-up to the album’s release on December 4th.
Stay tuned (though not for live dates).
