Scott Walker new album Bish Bosch out 3 December

Scott Walker's next album will be out on 3 December on 4AD. The nine track album is titled Bish Bosch, and the sleevenotes contain footnotes on the 20th century fad of flagpole sitting, a jester named Zercon in the court of Atilla the Hun and a sub-stellar brown dwarf star. Sounds on the record include machetes, finger snaps, rams horns and BJ Cole on Hawaiian pedal steel.

More info incoming on 4AD. Album artwork below, and a site will be launched later today.
