BUYIMITATIONSFROM THE HEAVENLY EMPORIUM

Lanegan’s set will feature tracks from his new covers record ‘Imitations’, which was released on 16th September 2013 and suitably includes his take on Nick Caves ‘Brompton Oratory’.

Watch the video for Mark’s brooding and beautiful take on John Cale’s ‘I’m Not The Loving Kind’ in all its cinematic, outsider glory below!

‘Imitations’ critical acclaim:

“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”

Cherry Ghost share new track & announce third album ‘Herd Runners’

Cherry Ghost 'Herd Runners'

We’re thrilled to announce details of Cherry Ghost’s third album ‘Herd Runners’ which will be released on Heavenly Recordings on 12th May (signed copies available for preorder via the Heavenly emporium HERE).

The record follows up 2007’s ‘Thirst For Romance’ and 2010’s ‘Beneath This Burning Shoreline’, which have since seen Simon Aldred become a songwriter-for-hire, nurturing upcoming British talent including Sam Smith and Kwabs, as well as release a set of critically lauded post-midnight electronic love songs under the guise of Out Cold.

Recorded in Sheffield with long-term Richard Hawley collaborator Colin Elliot and mixed in Bath with Dan Austin, Herd Runners is ten perfectly crafted tales of heartbreak and hope — shifting from soaring, symphonic pop (‘Clear Skies Ever Closer’) to melancholic lock-in blues (‘Drinking for Two’) via an almost uncompromisingly hopeful rhythmic shuffle (‘The World Could Turn’).

Listen to preview track The World Could Turn below and keep an eye on the Cherry Ghost facebook and twitter pages for details on live dates to be announced soon.
