I feel like I've almost most come full circle with my track selection on a Million Miles.
While not every track has had country or roots'y bones - I found myself transcending through sub-genres, the odd classic and cover - for familiarity - but this week was an easy choice being a favourite. From Lanegan and Campbell's 2010 collaborative "Hawk" - "Snake Song" has always been a standout track along with "You Won't Let Me Down Again" and not to forget the brilliant tribute and rendition of "Townes Van Zandt's" "No Place to Fall"
In my eyes and ears this album has all the makings of a brilliantly assembled cinematic score - from the dusty outlaw sounds of the wild west to the smouldering vocals of Isobel Campbell - this duo really paint a visual picture for the listener
