Info for Dark Matter

„Dark Matter“ ist nach neun Jahren der Nachfolger zum viel beachteten Album „Harps And Angels“ von 2008, das der Guardian seinerzeit für seine „prächtigen Melodien, sein verheerendes Pathos und seine dornigen und ironiegetränkten Charakterbeschreibungen« lobte und es das »Werk eines wahren Meisters der volksnahen Songs“ nannte.

Zu den Ehrungen, die Randy Newman im Laufe der Jahre empfangen konnte, gehören sechs Grammys, drei Emmys und zwei Oscars. 2002 wurde er in die Songwriters Hall Of Fame aufgenommen, 2013 folgte die Aufnahme in die Rock'n'Roll Hall Of Fame. Im selben Jahr erhielt er den Ivor Novello PRS for Music Special International. Jüngst, im Juni 2014, wurde ihm der Song Lyrics of Literary Excellence Award durch die PEN-Sektion New England verliehen.

„Dark Matter“ wurde in Los Angeles aufgenommen und von den langjährigen Newman-Vertrauten Mitchell Froom, Lenny Waronker und David Boucher produziert. Die neun Songs des Albums umfassen unter anderem den Song Putin der bereits 2016 digital erschien, sowie Songs über die Kennedybrüder, über Sonny Boy Williamson, die Auseinandersetzung zwischen Wissenschaft und Religion, über Liebe und Verlust und vieles mehr.

Randy Newman
The recipient of two Academy Awards for Best Original Song, 20 Oscar nominations, six Grammy awards, and 14 Grammy nominations, Newman is a singular figure who over the course of his career has explored various styles and sounds of the canon of 20th-century American music.

A Los Angeles native, Randy Newman became famous during the 1960s and '70s for writing quirky, darkly funny, or sharply satirical songs detailing the lives of characters of his own making. This idiosyncratic style alternated between sweeping cinematic pop and rolling R&B, a style heavily influenced by time spent in New Orleans during his youth. After Randy Newman’s self-titled debut album was released in 1968, his reputation as a songwriter grew quickly, as Judy Collins, Dusty Springfield, Peggy Lee, Harry Nilsson, and Joe Cocker, among others, recorded his songs. Newman began a career as a film composer in the early 1980s. Among his film compositions are many kid-friendly songs, including Toy Story’s “You’ve Got a Friend in Me.”
