IAN McCULLOCH – ” Slideling ” (20th Anniversary Edition) Record Store Day 2023

Posted: April 20, 2023 in MUSIC

Demon Records is proud to present the 20th anniversary edition of “Slideling”, the third solo album by frontman of Echo & the Bunnymen. First released in 2003, the album was produced by acclaimed producer Cenzo Townshend and features guest performances by Coldplay’s Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland on stand-out tracks ‘Sliding’ and ‘Arthur’.

McCulloch has created a grand pop rock album that wastes no time revving its engine, add to that the participation of Coldplay singer Chris Martin and Johnny Buckland. Mac sings in his trademark style, sounding as fresh as he did two decades ago. There’s a certain soulful feeling to the song as well, whether it’s the bass line or the backing harmonies kept in the distance. McCulloch kept it simple, knowing when to cut the fat from a song, resulting in few if any lengthy fading moments. This third album is a glorious return to what made Mac so damn cool in the first place. It’s his best solo record. Okay, he’s only had three, but this is classic McCulloch in a contemporary model.

To mark the 20th anniversary, the album is released on vinyl for the very first time, exclusively for Record Store Day 2023. Pressed on 140g white vinyl, newly mastered by Phil Kinrade at AIR Mastering.
