Mark Lanegan – Somebody’s Knocking
Mark Lanegan is an American singer, songwriter, and musician. He is known for his baritone voice, which has been described as being “as scratchy as a three-day beard yet as supple and pliable as moccasin leather” and has been compared to Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits. Lanegan began his musical career in 1984 as the frontman of the psychedelic grunge band Screaming Trees. Following the end of the band, he became a frequent collaborator of Queens of the Stone Age and featured on their albums Rated R, Songs for the Deaf, Lullabies to Paralyze, Era Vulgaris, and …Like Clockwork. Lanegan has also collaborated with various artists throughout his career, including Kurt Cobain, with whom he recorded an unreleased album of Lead Belly covers. He also performed with Layne Staley and Mike McCready in the band Mad Season. Somebody’s Knocking is his eleventh studio album. A review from Clash called it “probably the most cheerful album Lanegan has released under his own name, despite still sounding like Joy Division at their moodiest”.
