MARK ISHAM RELEASES “coverART”
Grammy winning Oscar nominee releases new album
Los Angeles, CA: Prolific film composer Mark Isham (The Accountant, Black Mirror) has just released coverART – a new EP of electronica remixes of classic standards. From Jobim to The Temptations, the six song EP covers wide ranging material in the composer’s signature unique trumpet and composition style.
Having played with legends like Van Morrison, Springsteen, and Stanley Clarke, and with upcoming projects along side electronic artist BT and Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek, Isham sought to create a unique solo project with “coverART” – one that combined his first loves – trumpets and synthesizers. Blending the unmistakable sound of his horn with modern electronics (and a touch of his film scoring sensibilities), electronic artist BT called Isham’s sound “better than ever and wow on the re-harmonizations and arrangements. Absolutely killer stuff.” And legendary producer Don Was says “The record’s awesome….really beautiful stuff!”
Releasing the album through his own imprint, Mark Isham Music, coverART will be available for public pre-order November 18th, 2017 – with an official worldwide release date of November 21st, 2017 on all digital platforms, streaming and downloadable. The album’s cover songs, all of which are defining parts of Isham’s path from acclaimed trumpet player to international film composing icon, include:
Take Five – the Dave Brubeck classic “Willow Weep For Me”, once achingly sung by Billie Holiday & Ella Fitzgerald Angel Eyes, a favorite of Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra’s How Insensitive, the Jobim classic Papa Was A Rolling Stone, the Temptations hit Mood Indigo, featuring the incomparable Sid Page on violin
A limited edition vinyl release will be available for pre-order in December. Isham will be performing in select cities beginning in 2018.
“coverART” is available to the press now. Please contact Mark Isham Music for advance digital copies, to set up interviews and to request more materials.
