Wild Dog vinyl (180 gr) - Susanna
SONATA LP-004 2012
SusannaSonata releases the first physical item, "Wild Dog" as vinyl. Release date 20th of April in Norway.
The vinyl is cut by Paul Gold at Salt Mastering in Brooklyn, the cover is made by Kim Hiorthøy and it is printed at Pallas in Germany. This is a quality product sounding wonderful.
”Wild Dog” is Susanna´s eight album, including three with Susanna and the Magical Orchestra, her ”Norwegian” album ”Jeg Vil Hjem Til Menneskene” and the recent ECM album with Giovanna Pessi. That is effectively one album a year of quality releases since her debut in 2004, indeed a very rare treat these days. Possibly best known for her unique and striking interpretations of iconic songs like ”Jolene”, ”Hallelujah” and ”Love Will Tear Us Apart”, she has also proved herself as an original songwriter with a strong signature. Bonnie ”Prince” Billy has performed and recorded her songs and Mojo named her song ”Believer” as ”one of the greatest break-up songs ever”. The ten originals on ”Wild Dog” are darker, wilder and more intensely seductive than ever. Susanna has assembled some prominent guests on the album with Emmett Kelly from Bonnie ”Prince” Billy´s band and Jeremy Gara from Arcade Fire appearing on all ten tracks while Shahzad Ismaily is credited on seven tracks and Jo Berger Myhre on two. Co-producer Helge Sten (Deathprod) is typically credited with ”space and beyond” on one track while The Sheriffs of Nothingness (Ole Henrik Moe and Kari Rønnekleiv) do their thing on another track.
