JONATHAN WILSON - RARE BIRDS VINYL (LTD. ED. GOLD 2LP GATEFOLD + BOOKLET & STICKERS)
LIMITED EDITION 2LP GOLD VINYL GATEFOLD + BOOKLET & STICKERS
Release Date: 2nd March 2018
Known for his production skills more than as an artist in his own right until now - things are set to change with this audacious 70s-fuelled epic of a record! Somehow shoehorning in the sounds of the likes of vintage legends such as Fleetwood Mac, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Neil Young with contemporary 70s-loving artists such as The War On Drugs, Father John Misty (whom Wilson has producer for) and Strand Of Oaks. Also including guest vocals from Lana Del Ray, Josh Tillman (Father John Misty), and many others - this album is the making of Jonathan Wilson.
"The highly anticipated long player features backing vocals from Lana Del Rey, Josh Tillman, fellow Roger Waters bandmates Lucius and an extraordinary musical gift from otherworldly Brian Eno collaborator Laraaji. Think early Peter Gabriel or even mid-period Kate Bush. Wilson had a busy 2017, producing Father John Misty's grammy nominated Pure Comedy and touring arenas around the globe as a guitarist and vocalist for Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters (for whom he also contributed to the lauded Is This The Life We Really Want? album.) Wilson also saw widespread acclaim heaped on Karen Elson’s sophomore LP Double Roses, which he recorded with her in Los Angeles in 2016. But it's not looking like he's is going to get much of a rest in 2018 either, as he'll be continuing on with the worldwide Waters tour and releases his own new solo album Rare Birds. Wilson describes Rare Birds as a "maximalist," high density album more influenced by 80s British production more than anything to do with Southern California in 1970s."
