It was a sweet little surprise when Mark Lanegan popped back up on the radar, last week, guesting on Neko Case’s new “Curse Of The I-5 Corridor” track. Now, the former Screaming Trees frontman gifts us with a new one featuring regular collaborator Duke Garwood. Garwood and Lanegan will release a new album, With Animals on August 24th through Heavenly Recordings.

Garwood commented on the new album’s creation…

Over the years, we’ve recorded together and apart. This time, I started this record alone, with many animals as company. It flowed, I set to work and out it came. Our music is instinct, there is not much talking about it, just creating. I think that if you are at peace with your work, and feeling it right, it flows, and can feel “easy.” Music isn’t meant to be hard. Though sometimes it can burn you to ashes. Making music for a singer, so they can inhabit it with a song means hitting the right soul buttons. There is no hit without a miss. It is a healing record, for us the makers, and for the listeners. It grows natural. We are gardeners of sonic feelings.
