Mark Lanegan and darkwave band IYEARA have released single She Loved You. The single is taken from a remix of Mark’s entire 2019 album Somebody’s Knocking, retitled and reimagined as ‘Another Knock At The Door’ (IYEARA remixes), out on 21st August 2020.
On She Loved You, IYEARA have combined the throbbing synths of John Carpenter with the ethereal, ambient sonics of Tangerine Dream, to create their own cerebral take on the works of a unique, enduring artist. She Loved You follows previous single Playing Nero, where IYEARA added a brooding, industrial edge to a beautiful, wistful original score.
The Screaming Trees and Queens of the Stone Age front man’s 11th solo album was a synth-laden and pulsating soundscape. In step with Lanegan’s next move – a published memoir (Sing Backwards and Weep) – IYEARA have reworked the whole album, to scrutinise and reveal the nuances and atmospheres within, to reframe Lanegan’s lyrics. IYEARA have reimagined the primal, guttural songs in their own image.
Comprised of The Duke Spirit guitarist Toby Butler, producer Malcolm Carson and vocalist Paul O’Keeffe, IYEARA announced themselves in 2019 through the release of CONSEQUENCES EP; a record including a cover of Shout by Tears for Fears featuring The Duke Spirit’s Liela Moss.
