Mark Lanegan's new covers LP Imititations features Lanegan covering songs that have influenced him throughout his life, including classic tracks by Nick Cave, The Twilight Singers, John Cale and more.

Among the 12 tracks, Lanegan tackles Hall & Oates' "She's Gone", Nancy Sinatra's "You Only Live Twice", Nick Cave's "Brompton Oratory", and Bobby Darin's "Mack the Knife", and others. In a statement, Lanegan described the project's emotional significance, "When I was a kid in the late sixties and early seventies, my parents and their friends would play the records of Andy Williams, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and Perry Como, music with string arrangements and men singing songs that sounded sad whether they were or not. At home my folks were also listening to country music, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, George Jones and Vern Gosdin were some of our favorites. For a long time I've wanted to make a record that gave me the same feeling those old records did, using some of the same tunes I loved as a kid and some that I've loved as I have gotten older. This record is it, Imitations."
