Mark Lanegan – Field Songs


Field Songs is the fifth solo album by Mark Lanegan, released in 2001 on the Beggars Banquet label. Recording The two largest instrumental contributors are Mike Johnson and Ben Shepherd, the latter co-writing “Blues for D” with the singer. The album also features Duff McKagan of Velvet Revolver and Guns N’ Roses as well as Lanegan’s ex-wife, Wendy Rae Fowler. Chris Goss sings on “She Done too Much.” The album represents a departure of sorts for the singer. While retaining the acoustic atmosphere of his previous solo efforts, Field Songs incorporates Middle Eastern influences (“No Easy Action”) as well as experimental musical landscapes (“Miracle,” “Blues for D”) which elicited comparisons from critics to Tom Waits.
