Lanegan Sings for the Kids
Gutter Twin Mark Lanegan appears on Dog Train a new album of children’s songs written by Sandra Boynton.
The good news is that Mark Lanegan, if he weren’t covered in some pretty odd tattoos, could probably moonlight singing kids’ songs. His voice is warm and light, his tone is wry but not overdone, and the song (as, I believe all of them were, written by Sandra Boynton) is charming. It’s a bluesy tale of a bear and his sneakers–an addictive song with a funny punch line.”
The album also features songs from Spin Doctors, Alison Krauss and Weird Al Yankovic.
