Kaki King Follows Up Foo Fighters Collab With Fourth LP
Thu, 17 Jan 2008 08:14:31
Kaki King has finished her fourth album, Dreaming Of Revenge, a 50/50 split of instrumentals and full-fledged singer-songwriter fare—something she's never attempted before. As King explained in a statement, "The words mean something now. They're actually telling stories.
She added, "Everything I write tends to be dense and chordal, but this time the idea was to layer the challenging guitar work under very simple, beautiful melodies. I really wanted them to be memorable." In the past, King has mostly used her voice as an otherworldly instrument, whether it's a solo album or someone else's project (Foo Fighters, Tegan & Sara, her Golden Globe-nominated score contributions for Into the Wild).
Dreaming Of Revenge is due out on March 11 through Velour Music Group. King will announce some tour dates behind the project soon; for now, you can catch her at South by Southwest in March.
