Black Ships Scheduled to Eat Sky Early Next Year

E-mail Print PDF
The release date for Black Ships Ate the Sky, Current 93's long overdue follow-up to 2000's Sleep Has His House, has been pushed back again to January/February of 2006.

An early version of the album's seven-minute title track was released earlier this year in the form of the mysterious "Coptic" CD for sale at Current 93's Toronto shows, at which the Current 93 live ensemble also performed a few tracks destined for the new album.  It was already announced months ago that the album was to include special guest appearances by Antony, Marc Almond, Will Oldham AKA Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Ben Chasny, Simon Finn, Michael Cashmore, Pantaleimon and Steven Stapleton, but has just announced that the album will also feature vocal guest spots from Shirley Collins and Mellow Candle's Clodagh Simonds.  Is it possible that the new Current 93 album will have even more guest stars than the new Kanye West album?  I'm sure Pharrell and Ludacris are available to spit some apocalyptic shizzle on a track or two, should it become necessary.
