A re-issue of Marc Almond’s 11th solo album, Stranger Things, from 2001 as part of his 65th year celebration. Stranger Things was a celebrated collaboration between Marc Almond and the much- missed mercurial talent of Icelandic producer and arranger Jóhann Jóhannsson (Lhooq, Dip, Hafler Trio…) which gave the album a consciously cinematic musical coherence with its signature melodramatic and soaring string arrangements to the fore.
Deftly combining elements of Gothic tinged Synth Pop and orchestral grandeur, the album provoked much eulogising on its original release. Marc and Johannsson were kindred spirits whose shared influences were a mash-up of Philip Glass, ‘70s music, John Barry, Martin Denny, striptease soundtracks, burlesque and Techno – all of which is richly manifested in the unique sensibility and beauty of the resultant album.
