Scott Walker has posted a new trailer for his album 'Bish Bosch' online.
Each new album from Scott Walker is an event. Yet for some reason, 'Bish Bosch' feels rather more important than some of his recent work. Perhaps it's the timing, with Scott Walker supplying his second album in a decade - a near glut, by his own sparse standards. Perhaps it's the influence of 4AD, with the esteemed British independent supplying the artist with a new home.
Or perhaps it's Rob Young's superlative introductory essay. Whatever it is, the prospect of 'Bish Bosch' arriving on our stereo soon has raised the collective temperature of the ClashMusic office. This afternoon the legendary artist placed a teaser online.
Featuring Scott Walker (plus band) at work in the studio, it gives a tantalising glimpse of what to expect on his forthcoming album.
