Scott Walker, one of the most uncompromising and brilliant musicians ever, has a new album coming out in December titled Bish Bosch. This is his first since 2006′s The Drift and only his 4th in the last 30 or so years. There’s a 4 minute “trailer” for the album up on YouTube and judging from what can be seen and heard, the man still takes no prisoners. This is not music for everyone, this is the antithesis of pop.
Here’s the link in case you can’t see the embedded video.
I strongly recommend you check out the 2006 documentary Scott Walker: 30 Century Man if you haven’t already. My favorite bit in that film, Brian Eno listening to some of Walker’s tracks from 1975 and saying, “I have to say, it’s humiliating to hear this. It is. I just think, Christ, we haven’t got any further.”
