Lanegan Nominated for Mercury Music Prize
Gutter Twin and sometimes Twilight Singer Mark Lanegan has been nominated for the Mercury Music prize for his duet album with Isobel Campbell.
ISOBEL CAMPBELL & MARK LANEGAN – BALLAD OF THE BROKEN SEAS
Scottish singer-songwriter Isobel Campbell started out as the cellist for indie pop group Belle and Sebastian.
Her third album as a solo artist was recorded in collaboration with the former lead singer of US grunge band Screaming Trees, Mark Lanegan.
Campbell wrote and produced most of the album, and says she was influenced by Johnny Cash and Nancy Sinatra.
The Mercury judges called it “eerie and sensual, sweet and sinister, evocative and remarkable”.
