"When you have no one, No one can hurt you"
As soon as I heard Mark Lanegan sing these lyrics on the tune 'You Will Miss Me When I Burn' I wondered what took Lanegan SO LONG to cover Will Oldham(the song is a Palace Brothers original). Lanegan's trademark brooding vocals work so incredibly well with Oldham's knack for writing gorgeously downtrodden songs. And this song doesn't dissapoint.
This tune as well as Langegan colloborations with such talent as Mike Patton, Gibby Haynes, and several others can be found on the brand new Soulsavers record, aptly titled 'Broken.'
