'All Is Dream' is released later this year...
MERCURY REV‘s new album is titled ‘ALL IS DREAM’, and will be released towards the end of August.
The follow-up to their acclaimed ‘Deserter’s Songs’ album was, according to Canadian website www.canoe.ca, intended as a collaboration with producer Jack Nitzsche. However, following his death last year, the record became a tribute to his life.
In a statement prepared by singer Jonathan Donahue, he said: “As it turns out, he died a week before the sessions were to begin. Jack had loved ‘Deserter’s Songs’… Jack was real fragile, but not weak. Just not of this world or out of place or a part of some long-forgotten time in music we were too young to recall.”
The tracklisting for ‘All Is Dream is:
?The Dark Is Rising?
?Tides Of The Moon?
?Nite And Fog?
?A Drop In Time?
?You’re My Queen?
?Spiders And Flies?
Mercury Rev are expected to play material from ‘All Is Dream’ at their forthcoming shows at the Carling Weekend Festivals in Reading and Leeds over the weekend of August 24-26.
