Mark Lanegan – Straight Songs Of Sorrow
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. Straight Songs of Sorrow is his twelfth studio album released on May 2020. The album was inspired by writing his memoir Sing Backwards and Weep, which was published April 28, 2020. It features guests musicians Warren Ellis (from The Bad Seeds), Greg Dulli, John Paul Jones (from Led Zeppelin) and many more.
