Scott Walker - Sundog, Selected Lyrics
Scott Walker : Sundog, Selected Lyrics
23rd November 2017

Faber & Faber will release Sundog, the selected lyrics of Scott Walker on January 11th 2018 in Deluxe, Limited and Standard Editions .

Sundog is the first ever selection of Scott Walker’s lyrics, curated by the artist himself, published with a stunning introduction by Eimear McBride and available in three editions – deluxe (Edition of 100), limited (Edition of 300) and standard. 

Separated into six parts; The 60s, Tilt, The Drift, Bish Bosch, Soused and New Songs, this is a landmark publication from a cultural icon. 

‘Walker’s work, as Joyce’s before it, is a complex synaesthesia of thought, feeling, the doings of the physical world and the weight of foreign objects slowly ground together down into diamond [...] This is not art for the passive. It does not impart comfort or ease. Tempests will not be reconciled by the final bars and no one is going home any more.’ - Eimear McBride


For full specification of both the deluxe and limited editions please visit scottwalkerbook.com. Pre-orders will be available from Friday 15th December. 

Scott Walker was born in Hamilton, Ohio and lives in London. Over six decades he has assembled a body of work which bears comparison with the most original and exalted lyricists of the late twentieth century.
