If the idea of a Mark Lanegan remix album sounds a little bizarre, that’s because it is. And while this collection of reworked tracks – taken from 2014’s Phantom Radio and its companion EP, No Bells On Sunday – is something of a curate’s egg, it nevertheless demonstrates that remixes can be executed with care and attention, as well as reverence for the original song. That’s most in evidence – perhaps unsurprisingly, given their work together as The Gutter Twins – on the Greg Dulli remix of I Am The Wolf, which turns the song into an even more haunting echo of itself, and on Soulsavers’ stretched out, ghostly reimagining of Jonas Pap.

With this collection, Mark Lanegan offers his fans a different perspective on his 2014 album Phantom Radio. Lanegan and his collaborator Alain Johannes have handed off most of the tracks from Phantom Radio (as well as several from the EP No Bells on Sunday) to other musicians and producers to create new mixes of the material. With the help of Soulsavers, Moby, Mark Stewart, UNKLE, Greg Dulli, Moon Gangs, Alastair Galbraith, and others, A Thousand Miles of Midnight spins new soundscapes from the moody frameworks of Lanegan's original recordings, bringing his electronic influences to the forefront and confirming the strength and versatility of Lanegan's work.
