Mark Lanegan is set to return with a new Mark Lanegan Band album, Blues Funeral, on February 6. We’ve already heard the awesome opening dirge of ‘The Gravedigger’s Song’, and now the rest of the album is available to stream online. Blues Funeral is produced by multi-instrumentalist Alain Johannes (Eleven, Queens of the Stone Age) and features appearances from an array of regular Lanegan collaborators, including Jack Irons (Eleven, Pearl Jam), Greg Dulli (The Afghan Whigs, Gutter Twins), Chris Goss (Masters of Reality) and Josh Homme (Queens of The Stone Age). I’ve already given this album a couple of spins, and I’m absolutely loving it. As much as I enjoy Lanegan’s folk diversions with Isobel Campbell, this is his best work since 2004’s Bubblegum.
