Sun Kil Moon heeft grote plannen voor 2018

Sun Kil Moon heeft grote plannen voor 2018

In 2017 leverde Mark Kozelek het volgende af: een dubbelaar van Sun Kil Moon album, een solo-ep, een samenwerking met Jesu, een andere met  Sean Yeaton van Parquet Courts en een derde met Ben Boye en Jim White. En hij is duidelijk nog lang niet klaar want op zijn website liet hij al weten dat er volgend jaar twee albums van Sun Kil Moon zullen komen.

Hij verduidelijkt als volgt: “One of the albums was recorded in hotel rooms in San Francisco throughout the year, with mobile gear, mostly recorded on a 1960 Fender Jazzmaster guitar. The album was recorded at hotels to take a break from the dark, windowless atmosphere of studios, and to see how atypical recording environments would affect my music. My guess is that the album title and track listing will be announced by February, and I’ll likely release the album early next summer.”

Over het andere album zegt hij dat het “was written during a Sun Kil Moon tour in November of this year, partly recorded in Copenhagen during that tour, and also at Hyde Street Studios in San Francisco after returning home in early December. The lyrics were written on trains and planes between those concert dates and the music was written quickly when we arrived at soundchecks in various cities. The 3 non-original songs on the album include a cover of the Partridge Family’s Come On Get Happy in honor of the late David Cassidy, a new, amped up cover version of Rock ‘N’ Roll Singe’ by AC/DC, in honor of the late Malcolm Young (and features Jordan Cook from Reignwolf on guitar), and another track is Chapter 87 of John Connolly’s novel He, set to music. I’m mixing the album in Buffalo, NY, at GCR Studios, as I write this, and will likely release it in early November next year, as the atmosphere of the album is heavily November themed.”

En dan is er nog dat Kozelek “just signed off on final score work for a beautiful James Franco directed film The Pretenders.”
