new Sparklehorse!

Post by Roman Sokal » Sun Apr 16, 2006 9:34 pm

apparently, the new long-awaited album by Sparklehorse will be out this September. As I recall, he (Mark Linkous) worked with Dave Fridmann back in 2004 as well as semi-recently with Danger Mouse (apparently the results of the latter collaboration are quite different than Mark's previous works). Keep an eye out for info on this album at http://www.sparklehorse.com
(click on the yellow bird). I am stoked to hear this!

According to this, the title is "Dreamt for Light Years in the Belly of a Mountain": http://indierockmag.com/article1348.html

I haven't seen it confirmed anywhere else, though, but I'm excited.

This guy is an absolute fucking musical genius. Whatever he contributes... even if it's just sleighbells on a song, it will be the most awesome sleighbells you'll ever hear.

This is very exciting news.

the version in the movie was performed by the actor Alessadro Nivola backed by members of the Folk Implosion. Although Mark can be seen later in the filming jamming with Daniel Lanois at a party at the Chateau Marmot.
