Mark Lanegan has shared a new song, ‘Harvest Home’.
The track features on the new Mark Lanegan Band album, ‘Phantom Radio’, which is set for release on October 20. Scroll down to listen to the song.
Lanegan has said that the new album was inspired by listening to 1980s satellite radio whilst driving around his current hometown of Los Angeles. “That’s the music that was happening when I started making music. And although the [Screaming] Trees drew on Nuggets psychedelia, 13th Floor Elevators and Love, we were actually listening to Echo And The Bunnymen, Rain Parade, The Gun Club. A lot of British post-punk. We loved that stuff. I just waited until I was in my late forties before I started ripping it off.”
Lanegan will tour the UK in support of the album at the start of next year. He plays:
Glasgow ABC (January 20, 2015)
Newcastle Riverside (21)
Leeds Met University (22)
Manchester Ritz (23)
Birmingham The Library (26)
Bristol O2 Academy (27)
