MARK LANEGAN SHARES ‘DEEPEST SHADE’: “USING SOME OF THE SAME TUNES I LOVED AS A KID”
Mark Lanegan unveils a second gem, ‘Deepest Shade’, a wonderful cover of Greg Dulli’s the Twilight Singers, off his covers album ‘Imitations’ (released 16th September via Heavenly Recordings).
Mark says: “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.”
