The first ever selection of lyrics by the iconic Scott Walker, hand picked by the artist.
Scott Walker is quite simply a cultural icon. He is an American-born, British singer-songwriter, composer and record producer. He is known for his distinctive voice and for the unorthodox career path which has taken him from 1960s pop icon to 21st century avant-garde musician.Originally coming to fame in the mid-1960s singing orchestral pop ballads as the frontman of The Walker Brothers, Walker went on to a solo career balancing a light entertainment with increasing artistic innovations in arrangement and writing perspective. Since the mid-1980s Walker has revived his solo career while drastically reinventing his artistic and compositional methods, via a series of acclaimed and vividly avant-garde albums. The change in approach has been compared to "Andy Williams reinventing himself as Stockhausen".
