Listen to Mark Lanegan’s cover of The Twilight Singers’ “Deepest Shade”


    For the latest track from his upcoming covers album Imitations, alt-rock journeyman Mark Lanegan pats his buddy Greg Dulli on the back by tackling The Twilight Singers’ “Deepest Shade”. In Lanegan’s tatted, world-worn hands, the song maintains its status as a lonesome little piano ballad, all but ripped from the catalog of some washed-up cabaret singer. But where Dulli’s vocals radiated with emotion, Lanegan’s haggard croon drowns you with waves of visceral heartache and tangible longing. Listen in below (via SPIN).

    Imitations is due out September 17th via Lanegan’s new label Vagrant. He also covers John Cale’s “I’m Not The Loving Kind”, Vern Gosdin’s “She’s Gone”, Nancy Sinatra’s “You Only Live Twice”, Nick Cave’s “Brompton Oratory”, and Bobby Darin’s “Mack the Knife”.
