Published Oct 20, 2008If Mark Kozelek has proven anything in his long and storied career its that dude has one hell of a knack for tunes that arent his, whether they are reworkings of AC/DC, Modest Mouse, John Denver or, hell, even Wings. Its perhaps for this reason that the Red House Painters/Sun Kil Moon man has announced his next solo effort will once again be one dominated by the songs of others.
On his upcoming release, The Finally LP, Kozelek will be tackling songs by the likes of Will Oldham's Palace Music, Low, Hüsker Dü, Kath Bloom and even showtuner Stephen Sondheim. Also, along with the inclusion of two previously released Kozelek originals, he funnily enough includes a redo of "Bedtime Lullaby from that wacky kids show Yo Gabba Gabba!, as well as AC/DCs "If You Want Blood, which he previously took on for his first solo record, 2001s Whats Next to the Moon (aka the "AC/DC covers record).
The Finally LP is due out December 9 on Kozeleks Caldo Verde imprint but in limited quantities, so you may want to consider doing some preemptive pre-ordering soon.
