Mike Patton has teamed up with French composer Jean-Claude Vannier for a new album titled Corpse Flower.
The record will be released on September 13 through Ipecac Recordings – with the pair releasing the first single On Top Of The World today. Listen to it below.
The Faith No More vocalist says: “Jean-Claude and I met while working together on a Gainsbourg retrospective at the Hollywood Bowl in 2011.
“We bonded immediately. I could see he had a dedication and attention to detail that was relentless so the respect I had for him in my mind was magnified in person.
“We spoke loosely about working together in the future… and it took some time, but after a few years I contacted him and we began to ignite some sparks.”
Speaking about the recording process, Vannier adds: “I would send Mike rough versions of the songs to get his thoughts, then I’d wait impatiently, staring at the clock until I received his response.
“He made my music awaken with his unique perspective and interpretations of my songs. A formidable vocalist, with a sense of humour, Mike and I created a strong, beautiful and sincere collection of music, as well as a friendship.”
The pair are joined on the record by a variety of musicians including Smokey Hormel, Justin Meldal-Johnsen, James Gadson, Denys Lable, Bernard Paganotti, Daniel Ciampolini, Didier Malherbe, Léonard Le Cloarec and the Bécon Palace String Ensemble.
