Description

Limited edition blue vinyl 7" (1000 copies only) exclusively for Record Store Day. Features two tracks from 2 remarkable concerts at Melbourne Recital Centre in November 2011 and The Barbican Centre, London in January 2010 celebrating the legacy of one of England's most revered singer/songwriters, Nick Drake. Melbourne duo, Luluc lend a potent melancholia to Drake's 'Things Behind The Sun' (from his third and final 1972 album 'Pink Moon') whilst exclusive to this 7", the highly acclaimed Irish singer Lisa Hannigan presents an evocative rendition of 'At The Chime Of A City Clock' (from his second, 'Bryter Layter,' 1970). 'Things Behind The Sun' is taken from the forthcoming album, 'Way To Blue : The Songs Of Nick Drake' (released 15th April 2013). Luluc's forthcoming album was produced by Aaron Dessner of The National. Nick Drake is an unlikely romantic hero. In the 1970s he was a minor English singer and songwriter who peddled a lyrical brand of introspection that earned him a small but devoted following and few record sales. Dogged by depression and embittered by his lack of success, he died of an overdose in 1974, virtually unknown and unnoticed. He left an amazing legacy - a handful of recordings of his sparsely beautiful songs across just three albums, less than two hours of music. But over the ensuing decades, the enduring potency of these songs has ensured Drake's reputation as one of the UK's truly great musical talents.
