David Gahan And Soulsavers Angels And Ghosts on LP + Download
Multi-platinum selling, Grammy Award-nominated recording artist Dave Gahan, along with musical partner Soulsavers, will release a new album in October 2015. Entitled Angels & Ghosts, this is the collaborators' second album, following their critically-acclaimed 2012 release The Light the Dead See. The "utterly riveting" Columbia Records release boasts nine original tracks, all written by Gahan & Soulsavers.
An evolution from their first album, Angels & Ghosts proves to be a markedly stronger and more hard-hitting body of work. Listeners can expect to be led through an aural mix of dark, brooding sounds, elements inspired by gospel and blues, and the stark beauty that has become a signature of Gahan and Soulsavers' works. Dave's emotionally powerful voice has never sounded better, and drives the album forward over a landscape of meticulously crafted instrumentation.
A transatlantic collaboration, the writing process started with Gahan and Soulsavers' Rich Machin exchanging demos and ideas from their respective studios in lower Manhattan and rural England. They then recorded the album with additional musicians in studios around the world, including classic locations such as Sunset Sound in Los Angeles and Electric Lady in New York. The end result is a vibrant, live-sounding album, and proof of the "instant and obvious fit" Machin felt writing with Gahan.
