Mark Lanegan Artist Snapshot:

While rock music is the domain of adolescents (real and imagined), Mark Lanegan's deep, whiskey-rough voice has always conveyed an air of menacing adulthood and troubled sophistication. He made a name for himself as the lead singer of Seattle grunge pioneers Screaming Trees, but even before their 1997 split, was releasing critically acclaimed solo albums, beginning with 1990's THE WINDING SHEET. Lanegan has focused his solo efforts on the rootsier end of the spectrum, writing and covering R&B, blues, and folk songs. He has also sung with riff-rockers Queens of the Stone Age, and duetted memorably with Scottish chanteuse Isobel Campbell.

Album Description

There's a certain "beauty & the beast" quality to the greatest male/female, singer/songwriter duos. Consider Jane Birken hooking up with Serge Gainsburg, or Nancy Sintra and Lee Hazelwood. And so it is with "Ballad of the Broken Seas", an album length collaboration between Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan.There's a similar contrast between Isobel's aching, pristine chill of a voice and Lanegan's wounded, regret-stewed burr.

Product Notes

While duets have been often turned into pairings that dilute both participants into toothless blobs, that's not the case here. Scottish singer Isobel Campbell, formerly of Belle & Sebastian here teams up with Mark Lanegan, formerly of Screaming Trees and collaborator with Queens of the Stone Age. It's a classic beauty and the beast alignment, with Lanegan's gruff baritone sounding like the protector of a beautiful little bird. This is a combination that's been done with success previously by the likes of Lee Hazelwood & Nancy Sinatra, and Serge Gainsbourg with Jane Birkin. The instrumental settings further underscore the gorgeously weathered timelessness of these dozen songs. This is music that straddles several centuries, updating traditions with confidence and subtle invention. --David Greenberger
