PREORDER NOW:
Lovers Store | iTunes + Google Play | Amazon

Nels Cline's Lovers album is out on August 5th. It's his debut on Blue Note Records and is available now for preorder on CD, vinyl and digital download. A double-album featuring originals, standards and covers, Lovers offers an update on the 'mood music' idea and ideal, challenging our iconic notion of romance along the way. It was recorded with an ensemble of 23, and conducted and arranged by Michael Leonhart.
You can download "Beautiful Love" (a waltz originally composed by Wayne King, Victor Young & Egbert Van Alstyne) instantly with the preorder.

The live debut of Lovers will premiere at Newport Jazz Festival on July 31, with additional dates in April 2017 at UCLA Royce Hall in Los Angeles and SFJazz in San Francisco.

Preorder now in the Lovers store and be entered to win a monthly contest drawing, including the chance to have dinner with Nels (transportation to/in NYC is not provided).

- Nels HQ

I have been dreaming about, planning, and re-working my rather obsessive idea of this record for well over twenty-five years, and it was always going to be called Lovers. It is meant to be as personal in its sound and in its song selection as it is universal in its endeavor to assay or map the parameters of “mood” as it once pertained, and currently pertains, to the peculiar and powerful connection between sound/song and intimacy/romance. In this, I hope Lovers offers something of an update of the “mood music” idea and ideal, while celebrating and challenging our iconic notion of romance.

holy shit. Yuka Honda, Zeena Parkins, a full orchestra, Sonic Youth & DNA songs, a double album... this looks phenomenal.

I don't see a vocalist listed, but there are "lyrics by" in the credit. I'm hoping that it's still instrumental takes. Either way, I am beyond excited. This is going to be awesome.

no vocals but nels mentions that the lyrics are important to him so that's why they listed the lyricists

I feel that in addition to his "mood music about romance" goal, Nels is consciously expanding the definition of "the great American songbook" (even though, OK, not all composers are Unitedstatesians*). With SO many recent stabs at it, mostly dismal (Rod Stewart, whose talent commited suicide in 1975), a few great (Dylan), it's like Cline is saying, Look ding dongs, this is a living, organic and growing thing, and Sonic Youth and Annette Peacock are as much a part of it as Rodgers & Hammerstein.

In that sense, it's not Nels' first time: when he did Interstellar Space Revisited with Gregg Bendian, he acknowledged he was trying to fight The Marsalis Bible On Jazz History and push the notion that fiery free jazz, electric Miles and early Weather Report belong in the jazz continuum just as Louie Armstrong or Charlie Parker do.

* It's a word! Look it up!

Dear world -

It has come to my attention that, owing to a manufacturing snafu in Santa's summer jazz workshop, the physical release of my forthcoming double album called "Lovers" will be delayed - CD out on Aug. 19 and vinyl out on Sept. 2. >SIGH< Ah well. "We will sell no wine before its time." - Paul Masson

There will be a small heap of compact disc versions for sale and signing at the Newport Jazz Festival, where we will unveil several of these pieces on Sunday morning. For those of you not attending the festival, please be understanding and enjoy the full album digitally on Aug. 5 plus the songs released in advance that have been posted while you are waiting.

Thank you all!
XO
Nels Cline

From Nels HQ:

Quote:
Maybe the best things in life come in stages? Seriously, this is an exciting day for it marks the digital release of my double album Lovers on Blue Note Records, a concept album of sorts featuring (at the most) 22 stellar musician comrades playing music of mine as well as from other sources, all arranged and conducted by the protean Michael Leonhart.

Produced by my good friend David Breskin, it features 19 songs (18 tracks) recorded and mixed by Ron Saint Germain and mastered by Joe Gastwirt, and now you can hear it! Those of you who, like me, enjoy holding an object and absorbing artwork (in this case by Angela DeCristofaro) and reading liner notes and detailed credits, please be patient. The double compact disc package emerges August 19th - delayed by a slight manufacturing hiccup - and the double vinyl hits September 2nd - delayed because we are insuring the best possible pressings. But for all of you downloaders, this is your time! Please enjoy.

My humble thanks to all who worked so hard to make this happen: db, Michael L., Saint, the wonderful musicians and technicians, Angela, and everyone at Blue Note and TMM. I hope that this music can at least transport you to a place beyond the strident voices and conflicts we face daily, a place where dreams, intimacy, trust, and yes - love, flourish.

XO Nels (Aug. 5, 2016 - New York City)


When you preorder in the Lovers store, you'll be automatically entered to win a dinner with Nels in NYC (must provide own transportation) plus Lovers vinyl signed by Nels Cline, David Breskin and Michael Leonhart. The winner will be chosen Tuesday, Aug. 9. Preorder now.
