Isobel Campbell

Biography

Scottish chanteuse Isobel Campbell has inked a long term worldwide recording deal with V2 Records. Isobel, formally of Belle & Sebastian, has spent the initial part of this year completing work on 'Ballad of the Broken Seas', the collaborative album recorded with former Screaming Trees & Queens of the Stone Age singer, Mark Lanegan. Although much of the album was recorded with Campbell in her native Glasgow, and Lanegan in Los Angeles, the two actually came together in the studio in L.A. in May to cut a number of new tracks for the release, including a new Lanegan penned song, 'Revolver' and a version of the traditional blues tune, 'St James Infirmary'. Isobel initially met Mark Lanegan in Glasgow while he was on tour with Queens Of The Stoneage. Professing to be a big fan of her music, Lanegan made an offhand comment about how he would love for them to make a record together. Isobel took the idea and ran with it, writing a number of songs with Lanegan in mind, communicating with him via the internet, and posting over tracks for him to add his vocals to.
