I can’t remember when I first heard Mark Lanegan’s voice. I think I’ve always known it. That dark, growling, beautiful voice. For the first time since his last solo album, Bubblegum, in 2004, a new record is about to be released early February. The record is called Blues Funeral and features the likes of Josh Homme, Jack Irons and Greg Dulli. I am especially pleased Greg Dulli is joining him because no one can beg and plead as seductively as he can, even on a bad day.
