Scott Walker and Sunn O))) are set to collaborate on a Scott O))) project.
Details of the project are scant, but a source at 4AD, the label which is releasing the collaboration told The Quietus: “They’re working together and there is a record coming later in the year.”
A website, scott-o.com has been set up, but currently just consists of a holding page.
Walker, who is 71, signed to 4AD in 2004 and released The Drift in 2006 and his most recent album, Bish Bosh, in 2012.
Drone metal band Sunn O))) formed in Washington in 1998. They released their debut album ØØ Void in 2000 and their sixth album, the acclaimed Monoliths & Dimensions, in 2009. They have previously collaborated with experimental metal band Boris and released an album with Norwegian collective Ulver, called Terrestrials earlier this year.
