Walker's first two albums drew praise from the likes of Robert Plant and had a British folk tinge. His new album draws more on the US scene and plays down the virtuoso guitar playing.

Scott Walker – The Childhood of a Leader
A key and compelling component to Brady Corbet’s directorial debut, it is Walker’s first O.S.T. work since his score for Pola X in 1999. Walker continues to work with long-term collaborators Peter Walsh (co-producer) and Mark Warman (musical director), with the latter conducting an orchestra comprised of 46 string players and 16 brass for the studio recording.

Ed Harcourt – Furnaces
Ed Harcourt returns with his seventh album, produced by long-term collaborator Flood. The result is an album that, for all its fire and brimstone, is also euphoric and celebratory. The artwork was created by the legendary Gonzo artist Ralph Steadman.
