Alain Johannes | REK003 | Released: 30/05/11
Spark, Alain Johannes solo debut, is a heartfelt, honest and hypnotic collection of songs penned to commemorate his late wife and creative partner, Natasha Shneider. It's more than a tribute though; it's the purest celebration of her spirit.
From co-founding Eleven with Natasha to collaborating with everyone from Queens of the Stone Age and Them Crooked Vultures to Chris Cornell and Mark Lanegan, Alain remains a prolific force. Spark shows listeners every side of this unique songwriter, producer and composer.
Rekords Rekords founder Josh Homme comments, "Alain's record is the total embodiment of what the label stands for – the war against endorsing mediocrity and the uncensored attempt to take a leap off the musical cliff. Spark is a stunning examination of figuring out what you do when someone's gone, and it's utterly breathtaking."
