Experimental singer-songwriter Scott Walker and drone metal outfit Sunn O))) have revealed more details of their upcoming collaborative album. Entitled "Soused," it will be released on September 23rd via 4AD Records, according to ConsequenceOfSound.
According to a press release, the album spans five tracks and 50 minutes, with the tracklist arranged differently for the CD/digital and vinyl releases. Initial pressings of the double LP will be available on red vinyl.
Walker was originally approached to appear on Sunn's 2009 album "Monoliths & Dimensions," but eventually declined. However, in late 2013, he returned to Sunn with new music he had written specifically for a potential collaboration. The album was recorded earlier this year and produced by Walker, his longtime collaborator/partner Peter Walsh, and musical director Mark Warman.
Sunn O))) previously released a collaborative album with Ulver called "Terrestrials" this past February. Meanwhile, Walker's last full-length was 2012's "Bisch Bosh."
