Description

Mark Lanegan - Imitations

Heavenly Recordings proudly present Mark Lanegan's second release on the label - and eighth studio album to date - 'Imitations'.

Speaking about the record, which sees him take on tracks from Nancy Sinatra to Nick Cave in his own inimitable way, Lanegan said:

“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.”

Reviews

"A sweet and tender covers album... In the best way there is a broken weariness to his voice, a sense of life lived that offers new meaning to lyrics that weren't written with a man like him in mind"
Classic Rock, 8/10


"A record of timeless, typically morose joy"
Record Collector ★★★★


“A genuine emotional affinity underpins this marriage between Lanegan’s lupine growl and 12 melodramatic songs of masculine despair… Nick Cave’s ‘Brompton Oratory’, bathed in horns and burnished romance, might trump the original”
Uncut, 7/10


“As ever, Lanegan’s voice is solumn and affecting, emphasising the solumn sentiments of the material”
MOJO
