Album: First Comes the Night
Label: Vanguard Records
Release date: Nov. 13, 2015
Chris Isaak’s new album First Comes the Night produced by Paul Worley (Dixie Chicks, Lady Antebellum), Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell) and longtime Isaak collaborator Mark Needham will be released on Vanguard Records on November 13th. Recorded primarily in Nashville and Los Angeles, First Comes the Night is Isaak’s 13th studio album consisting of 12 new songs. A second configuration - a deluxe version with five additional cuts - will be released simultaneously. It is Isaak’s first recording of all original songs in over six years. First Comes the Night is the follow up release to Isaak’s critically acclaimed 2011 Beyond the Sun, his tribute album to Sun Records, Sam Phillips and the visionary artists who helped shape the early sounds of rock n’ roll.
Commented Isaak on his upcoming album: “I totally enjoyed recording in Nashville – a city filled with terrific musicians and what an honor to work with such great producers. As for the new songs, I like to mix it up so there’s some dark ones, funny ones and romantic ones. You have to absolutely play these songs after the break up while you’re cleaning the house.”
