If Godspeed You! Black Emperor ventured into jazz, hired Richard Wright as producer, mixed it down to cassette by a stressed-out Brian Eno:
The new Soup album would pretty much be it. Produced by the band themselves and aiming to counter the ongoing battle for loudness and Hi-Fi, you can expect a quite different sounding album. The album will be released in two different exquisitely coloured vinyl versions and a 3-panel digisleeve. Once again the band’s long-time collaborator Lasse Hoile is behind the stunning cover photos. The album’s artwork continues the visual story from Soup’s albums Children Of E.L.B., The Beauty of our Youth, Remedies and Live Cuts. The vinyl editions have been catered to everyone who appreciate the one true format for licking the cosmic cat mother’s magic milk bowl of sonic landscapes and elaborate over-the-top packaging! The most exclusive version LTD of the vinyl will hold an extra 12”, with extra songs. On top, there will be a very limited vinyl version (only available in the band’s and the labels’ webstores). Visions will be out November 19th. Melancholic, intimate and brutal. Labels: Crispin Glover Records (Norway – vinyl only), Glassville Records (international)
