Mark Lanegan is a dude who seems to enjoy working with others. We’ve already seen the former Screaming Trees frontman deliver his powerful growl to The Gutter Twins with his longtime homie, Afghan Whigs’ Greg Dulli (“Idle Hands” still rips). Lanegan’s three albums with Belle & Sebastian’s Isobel Campbell (“Come On Over (Turn Me On),” anyone?) were pretty much flawless. And let’s not forget everything he’s done with Queens of the Stone Age.

In addition to his thriving solo career, his list of collaborations goes on (Soulsavers, UNKLE, Marianne Faithfull, and more), and next up is Duke Garwood, an English multi-instrumentalist who Lanegan met a few years back when the two shared the same bill. And most recently, the bluesman Garwood served as an opener on a handful of shows on Lanegan’s European tour in support of his latest LP, Blues Funeral. And according to the UK press, he’s Lanegan’s “spiritual cousin across the Atlantic waters.”

“Duke Garwood is one of my all time favorite artists,” Lanegan said in a press release. “Working with him has been one of the best experiences of my recording life.”

Get ready for Black Pudding, available April 16 via Ipecac Recordings.
