Nuovo album per Mike Patton e questa volta in collaborazione con un peso massimo come Jean-Claude Vannier, meglio conosciuto per la sua collaborazione con il leggendario Serge Gainsbourg. Il disco in questione si intitola “Corpse Flower” ed uscirà il 13 settembre per Ipecac Recordings.
Il leader dei Faith No More ha parlato così della collaborazione:
“Jean-Claude and I met while working together on a Gainsbourg retrospective at the Hollywood Bowl in 2011. We bonded immediately. I could see he had a dedication and attention to detail that was relentless so the respect I had for him in my mind was magnified in person. We spoke loosely about working together in the future… and it took some time, but after a few years I contacted him and we began to ignite some sparks.”
Anche Vannier dice la sua:
“I would send Mike rough versions of the songs to get his thoughts, then I’d wait impatiently, staring at the clock, until I received his response. He made my music awaken with his unique perspective and interpretations of my songs. A formidable vocalist, with a sense of humor, Mike and I created a strong, beautiful and sincere collection of music, as well as a friendship.”
Al disco hanno collaborato svariati musicisti, tra Los Angeles e Parigi tra cui: Smokey Hormel (Beck, Johnny Cash), Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Beck, Air, Nine Inch Nails) e James Gadson (Beck, Jamie Lidell), Denys Lable, Bernard Paganotti (Magma), Daniel Ciampolini, Didier Malherbe, Léonard Le Cloarec e il Bécon Palace String Ensemble.
