Genre-bending art rock heroes Soulsavers return with their third release, Broken, which Columbia Records will release in digital formats only on August 18. And in true Soulsavers tradition, Rich Machin and Ian Glover opened their studio doors and invited a handful of friends.
At the forefront are the vocals of Mark Lanegan (Queens of the Stone Age, Screaming Trees), who returns after fronting eight tracks on the collective’s sophomore release, It’s Not How Far You Fall, It’s How Hard You Land. On Broken, he’s at the helm on ten tracks, including duets with Spiritualized’s Jason Pierce (“Pharaoh’s Chariot”), Faith No More frontman Mike Patton (“Unbalanced Pieces”) and Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers (“Death Bells”). Also appearing on the album are Richard Hawley (backing vocals on “Shadows Fall”), Australian newcomer Red Ghost (Rosa Agostino) and studio bassist Martyn LeNoble (Porno for Pyros, Jane’s Addiction).
